Monitoring of dioxin-like, estrogenic and anti-androgenic activities in sediments of the Bizerta lagoon (Tunisia) by means of in vitro cell-based bioassays: contribution of low concentrations of
TLDR
This study argues for the use of short time exposure to assess biological TEQs in low contaminated samples and provides new induction equivalent factors (IEF(4h)) for 16 PAHs in the PLHC-1 cell line. Expand
Fragmentation of sea bass populations in the western and eastern Mediterranean as revealed by microsatellite polymorphism
TLDR
It is hypothesize that selective forces are at play which limit long–range dispersal of the Mediterranean sea bass, a fact to be taken into account in the debate about speciation processes in the marine environment. Expand
Geography and host specificity: two forces behind the genetic structure of the freshwater fish parasite Ligula intestinalis (Cestoda: Diphyllobothriidae).
TLDR
Reproductive isolation was found even between clades living in sympatry and infecting the same definitive host, suggesting the existence of efficient biologically determined genetic barriers, and thus possibly separate species. Expand
Comparison of absolute and relative growth patterns among five Pinna nobilis populations along the Tunisian coastline: an information theory approach
TLDR
The variability in absolute and relative growth of Pinna nobilis along the Tunisian coastline was investigated and it may not be definitely concluded whether P.nobilis grows asymptotically or not. Expand
Description of a xenoma-inducing microsporidian, Microgemma tincae n. sp., parasite of the teleost fish Symphodus tinca from Tunisian coasts.
TLDR
The conversion of M. tincae xenomas into well-visible cyst structures or granulomas reflected an efficient host response involving the infiltration of phagocytic cells, degradation of various parasite stages and formation of a thick fibrous wall. Expand
Comparative morphometric study of the invasive pearl oyster Pinctada radiata along the Tunisian coastline
TLDR
It appeared that the majority of examined samples were dominated by large individuals that exceed a shell height of 42 mm, and the maximum size recorded in Bizerta lagoon, is bigger than that recorded elsewhere in particular in the Red Sea. Expand
Gonadosomatic index and gonad histopathology of Gobius niger (Gobiidea, Teleost) from Bizerta lagoon (Tunisia): Evidence of reproduction disturbance
TLDR
The first histological evidence of reproduction disturbance related to pollution pressure in a fish species inhabiting Bizerta lagoon is recorded, suggesting that the chemical pollution in this lagoon may have adversely affected the gonad development of fish. Expand
Heliocotyle kartasi gen. et sp. n. (Monogenea: Monocotylidae) parasitic on Pteromylaeus bovinus (Euselachii: Myliobatinae) from Tunisia
TLDR
A monogenean found on the gills of seven host specimens is described as a new species and a new genus, Heliocotyle, is proposed to accomodate it. Expand
Impact of management on the diversity of macrobenthic communities in Tunis north lagoon : systematics
TLDR
La lagune nord of Tunis demeure, malgre l'amelioration notable de la qualite de ses masses d'eau and le dragage de plusieurs dizaines de metres cube de vase, relativement polluee. Expand
