Invasion of the eastern Bay of Biscay by the nassariid gastropod Cyclope neritea: origin and effects on resident fauna
The distribution area of the nassariid gastropod Cyclope neritea (L.) includes the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, as well as the Atlantic coasts of the southern Iberian Peninsula. The species hasExpand
Invasion by the marine gastropod Ocinebrellus inornatus in France: I. Scenario for the source of introduction
Abstract The rate of introduction of exotic marine species has dramatically increased during the 19th and 20th centuries. Exemplifying this trend, the marine gastropod Ocinebrellus inornatus wasExpand
Invasion by the marine gastropod Ocinebrellus inornatus in France. II. Expansion along the Atlantic coast
Dispersal ability is key to the spreading of exotic species to new areas. Herein, we focus on the expansion processes along the French Atlantic coast of an exotic marine gastropod, Ocine- brellusExpand
Invasion by the marine gastropod Ocinebrellus inornatus in France. III. Comparison of biological traits with the resident species Ocenebra erinacea
Invasive species impacts on native species and communities have been widely recognised for decades and may involve important economical losses. In this study, we examined two marine muricidExpand
Concerted evolution in the GAPDH family of retrotransposed pseudogenes
In murine rodents the glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) multigene family includes more than 300 retroprocessed pseudogenes. Its single functional gene encodes GAPDH, an enzyme ofExpand
Multiple introductions promote range expansion of the mollusc Cyclope neritea (Nassariidae) in France: evidence from mitochondrial sequence data
Since the 1970s, the nassariid gastropod Cyclope neritea has been extending its range north along the French Atlantic coasts from the Iberian Peninsula. This may be due to natural spread because ofExpand
The relationship between metal concentrations and phenotypes in the Baltic clam Macoma balthica (L.) from the Gulf of Gdansk, southern Baltic.
Soft tissue accumulated concentrations of nine metals (V, As, Se, Ag, Cd, Pb, Mn, Cu and Zn) were studied in two main phenotypes (1) according to external shell colour (white and pink), and (2)Expand
Recent invasion of the Japanese oyster drill along the French Atlantic coast: identification of specific molecular markers that differentiate Japanese, Ocinebrellus inornatus, and European, Ocenebra
The direct amplification of length polymorphism technique (DALP) has been used to distinguish species-specific banding patterns in two marine gastropod oyster drills Ocenebra erinacea (Linnaeus,Expand
Polymorphic microsatellites for the study of newly established populations of the gastropod Cyclope neritea
Both human-mediated introductions and climatic changes may promote the settlement of species in new areas outside of their natural geographical range. To investigate the settlement of recentlyExpand
[Rapid determination of sex in Myocastor coypus embryos in the first stage of gestation].
The early knowledge of the sex may be crucial for the understanding of many features of ecological and evolutive biology, including offspring sex-ratio adjustment and evolution of breeding systems.Expand
