The reproductive ecology of the European bitterling (Rhodeus sericeus)
The European bitterlingRhodeussericeus Pallas is a freshwater fish belonging to the Acheilognathinae, a subfamily that has an unusual spawning symbiosis with freshwater mussels. Female bitterlingExpand

The distribution and habitat preferences of the zebrafish in Bangladesh
The present study presents the results of a survey of a wide range of water bodies in Bangladesh to identify and describe Danio rerio habitat preferences. Field-based experiments were conducted toExpand

The role of host specificity in explaining the invasion success of the freshwater mussel Anodonta woodiana in Europe
Several freshwater mussel species represent some of the most problematic invasive species and have considerably altered ecosystems worldwide. Their invasion potential has been partially attributed toExpand

Regulation of life span by the gut microbiota in the short-lived African turquoise killifish
Gut bacteria occupy the interface between the organism and the external environment, contributing to homeostasis and disease. Yet, the causal role of the gut microbiota during host aging is largelyExpand

Male-male interference competition decreases spawning rate in the European bitterling (Rhodeus sericeus)
We investigated the consequences of male-male interference competition associated with alternative male mating tactics in a freshwater fish, the European bitterling (Rhodeus sericeus). MaleExpand

Genetic evidence reveals density‐dependent mediated success of alternative mating behaviours in the European bitterling (Rhodeus sericeus)
The reproductive success of alternative mating behaviours may vary within and among populations in relation to environmental factors and demographic parameters. We used behavioural and genetic dataExpand

Sexual selection for male dominance reduces opportunities for female mate choice in the European bitterling (Rhodeus sericeus)
Sexual selection involves two main mechanisms: intrasexual competition for mates and intersexual mate choice. We experimentally separated intrasexual (male–male interference competition) andExpand

From the bush to the bench: the annual Nothobranchius fishes as a new model system in biology
African annual fishes from the genus Nothobranchius are small teleosts that inhabit temporary water bodies subject to annual desiccation due to the alternation of the monsoon seasons. Given theirExpand

MATE CHOICE FOR NONADDITIVE GENETIC BENEFITS CORRELATE WITH MHC DISSIMILARITY IN THE ROSE BITTERLING (RHODEUS OCELLATUS)
Good genes models of mate choice predict additive genetic benefits of choice whereas the compatibility hypothesis predicts nonadditive fitness benefits. Here the Chinese rose bitterling, RhodeusExpand

Range‐wide population genetic structure of the European bitterling (Rhodeus amarus) based on microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA analysis
An understanding of recent evolutionary processes is essential for the successful conservation and management of contemporary populations, especially where they concern the introduction or invasionExpand
