Evolutionary history of lamprey paired species Lampetra fluviatilis (L.) and Lampetra planeri (Bloch) as inferred from mitochondrial DNA variation
A remarkable trend in the evolution of lampreys is the occurrence in most genera of ‘paired species’, in which the parasitic anadromous lampreys are believed to have given rise to nonparasiticExpand

The genetics of maintenance of an all-male lineage in the Squalius alburnoides complex
Squalius alburnoides is a complex of minnows common to the Iberian Peninsula, consisting of two distinct forms. The most common form is comprised of diploid and polyploid asexual hybrids heterozygousExpand

Strong genome-wide divergence between sympatric European river and brook lampreys
Lampreys, together with hagfishes, are the only extant representatives of jawless vertebrates and thus of prime interest for the study of vertebrate evolution [1]. Most lamprey genera occur in twoExpand

Paralog-specific primers for the amplification of nuclear Loci in tetraploid barbels (barbus: cypriniformes).
Thirty paralog-specific primers were developed, following an intron-primed exon-crossing strategy, for S7 and growth hormone genes in Barbus (subgenera Barbus and Luciobarbus). We found thatExpand

Cytogenetic analysis of Anaecypris hispanica and its relationship with the paternal ancestor of the diploid-polyploid Squalius alburnoides complex.
The karyotype of the endangered fish Anaecypris hispanica was revisited using advanced cytogenetic techniques to elucidate its putative relationship with the paternal ancestor of the hybrid complexExpand
