Identification of the Sex Pheromone of a Protected Species, the Spanish Moon Moth Graellsia isabellae
TLDR
In preliminary field trials, lures loaded with this compound attracted male moths from populations of this species at a number of widely separated field sites in France, Switzerland, and Spain, clearly demonstrating the utility of pheromones in sampling potentially endangered insect species.
Some butterflies do not care much about topography: a single genetic lineage of Erebia euryale (Nymphalidae) along the northern Iberian mountains
TLDR
The genetic diversity and differentiation found in 218 individuals from six Cantabrian (North Spain) localities genotyped by 17 allozyme loci are estimated and an evolutionary significant unit is recognized for Pyrenean–Cantabrian populations of Erebia euryale.
Phylogeography of the Spanish Moon Moth Graellsia isabellae (Lepidoptera, Saturniidae)
TLDR
There was no evidence of host-associated differentiation between populations using P. sylvestris and P. nigra, and results point to a native origin for the French populations occurring in the Alps, genetically related to the Eastern Iberian and Pyrenean sites.
Estimating belowground plant abundance with DNA metabarcoding
TLDR
The results show that, through the use of post‐sequencing quantification methods on mock communities, DNA metabarcoding can be effectively used to determine not only species’ presence but also their relative abundance in field samples of root mixtures.
A trophic latitudinal gradient revealed in anchovy and sardine from the Western Mediterranean Sea using a multi-proxy approach
TLDR
This latitudinal gradient indicates changes in the trophic ecology of anchovy and sardine that coincide with previously described better biological conditions for fish in the southern part of the study area as well as higher landings of both species in recent years.
Phylogeny of Meloini blister beetles (Coleoptera, Meloidae) and patterns of island colonization in the Western Palaearctic
TLDR
A robust molecular phylogenetic framework is provided for Meloini by analysing two nuclear and mtDNA gene fragments of 24 species representing eight subgenera of Meloe and Physomeloe and suggests that transmarine dispersal events have occurred multiple times along the evolutionary history of phoretic species of blister beetles.
Enabling large-scale feather mite studies: an Illumina DNA metabarcoding pipeline
TLDR
The results show that this proposed pipeline is suitable for correct identification and quantitative estimation of the relative abundance of feather mite species in complex samples, especially when dealing with a moderate number (> 30) of individuals per sample.
Assessment of genetic diversity and population structure of the common littoral shrimp Palaemon serratus (Pennant, 1777) by microsatellites: Towards a sustainable management
The common littoral shrimp Palaemon serratus is an ecologically and economically important decapod crustacean. Understanding the spatial structure of its populations is crucial to implement effective
Determinants of Eurasian otter (Lutra lutra) diet in a seasonally changing reservoir
TLDR
The combined influence of both biotic and abiotic factors explained otter diet seasonality in a lentic-water novel ecosystem.
Characterization of ten polymorphic microsatellite markers for the protected Spanish moon moth Graellsia isabelae (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae)
TLDR
Ten polymorphic microsatellite loci were developed for Graellsia isabelae and Multilocus genotypes resulting from this set of markers will be useful to determine genetic diversity and differentiation within and among populations of this highly protected moth.
