In this study we used genetic approaches to assess the influence of landscape features on the dispersal patterns and genetic structure of two newt species (Triturus macedonicus and Lissotriton vulgaris) living syntopically in a network of ponds. Multilocus genotypes were used to detect and measure genetic variation patterns, population genetic structure and(More)
The European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) is, along with the gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata), one of the most extensively cultured species in European aquaculture productions. Massive mortalities may be caused by bacterial or viral infections in intensive aquaculture production. Evaluation of the efficacy of an oral vaccine against Vibrio anguillarum(More)
Water frogs of the genus Pelophylax (previous Rana) species have been much studied in Europe for their outstanding reproductive mechanism in which sympatric hybridization between genetically distinct parental species produces diverse genetic forms of viable hybrid animals. The most common hybrid is P. esculentus that carries the genomes of both parental(More)
A 58-year-old man presented with pain in the left lower abdomen. His past medical history was significant for diverticulosis in the sigmoid colon. Abdominal computed tomography scan showed stricture in the ascending colon and diverticulosis. Colonoscopy revealed a mass (Fig. 1) in the ascending colon. Pathology showed medullary (solid, poorly(More)
The genetic structure of swordfish (Xiphias gladius) in the Pacific Ocean was assessed by analyzing 594 individuals from 6 different regions, genotyped with 13 microsatellite loci. The results showed very low genetic differentiation among the different geographical areas, which was not statistically significant. There was a slight evidence for isolation by(More)
