Pleistocene divergence of Dinaric Drusus endemics (Trichoptera, Limnephilidae) in multiple microrefugia within the Balkan Peninsula
Findings shed light on the processes generating the high genetic complexity of this refugial region that parallels the ‘refugia within refugia’ pattern widely reported from the Iberian refugium. Expand
Microscale Vicariance and Diversification of Western Balkan Caddisflies Linked to Karstification
Species distribution model projections and genetic structure suggest that the endemic species persisted in situ and diversified locally throughout multiple Pleistocene climate cycles. Expand
Application of the comet assay and detection of DNA damage in haemocytes of medicinal leech affected by aluminium pollution: a case study.
The results indicate the DNA damaging potential of aluminium compounds present in an excess amount in tested samples. Expand
Life history traits of the grass shrimp Palaemonetes antennarius (Decapoda, Palaemonidae) in the delta of the Neretva River, Croatia
The shrimps follow a synchronic univoltine life cycle with a short egg-laying period and a new summer generation, apparently having no ecological flexibility, and did not appear in any environment with high oscillations of salinity. Expand
Estimation of DNA Integrity in Blood Cells of Eastern Mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki) Inhabiting an Aluminium-Polluted Water Environment: an Alkaline Comet Assay Study
Results of the present study indicate that the alkaline comet assay applied to fish blood cells is a valuable tool for determining the potential genotoxicity of water pollutants and confirm its usefulness in the evaluation of DNA damage in fish living in Al-polluted waters. Expand
Copepod communities in karstic mediterranean lakes along the eastern Adriatic coast
The copepod communities of karstic lakes along the eastern Adriatic coast were studied, finding that most of the meso-eutrophic lakes in the study area had Calanoida dominating, while Cyclopoida dominated in some oligotrophic and eutrophic lake groups. Expand
Plankton in the oligotrophic Lake Vrana (Croatia)
The lake is oligotrophic, has a monomictic temperate with winter circulation and thermal stratification in summer, and the main nutrients were low and vertically homogeneous in both years of the study. Expand
Macrozoobenthos as an Indicator of the Level of the Trophy and Saprobity of Lake Jarun
During complex ecological investigations on Lake Jarun (and neighbouring interstitial underground waters) which took place in 1984 and 1985, macrozoobenthos was also studied. Its qualitative andExpand
Eudiaptomus hadzici (BREHM) (Crustacea : Copepoda) from the Dinarid Karstic area
During biological research in 1995/96 of Lake Visovac in karstic Dinarid area, a large number of calanoid and cyclopoid copepods were obtained from plankton. Among these materials, the uncommon highExpand
An overview of the cave and interstitial biota of Croatia
The high taxonomic diversity of the subterranean biota of Croatia can be attributed partly to the geographical heterogeneity and a rather unique combination of various geological and ecological phenomena. Expand
