Genetic diversity and historical demography of Atlantic bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus).
Bigeye (Thunnus obesus) is a large, pelagic, and migratory species of tuna that inhabits tropical and temperate marine waters worldwide. Previous studies based on mitochondrial RFLP data have shownExpand
Identification of Illexcoindetii, I. illecebrosus and I. argentinus (Cephalopoda: Ommastrephidae) throughout the Atlantic Ocean; by body and beak characters
Abstract. Shortfinned squid species of the genus Illex support commercial fisheries throughout the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Previous identification of interspecific and intraspecificExpand
Temporal and spatial variation in the distribution of epineustonic competent larvae of Concholepas concholepas along the central coast of Chile
The abundance of competent epineustonic larvae of the gastropod Concholepas concholepas (Gastropoda: Muricidae) in nearshore waters at 2 sites along the central coast of Chile was examined throughExpand
How temperature influences muscle and cuttlebone growth in juvenile cuttlefish (Sepia elliptica) (Mollusca: Cephalopoda) under conditions of food stress
Environmental factors influencing growth during the first stages of an animal's life cycle are determinative. External factors have often been implicated in the determination of rates of developmentExpand
GENETIC STRUCTURE OF BIGEYE TUNA (Thunnus obesus) IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
SUMMARY The population genetic structure of the bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) was studied in the Atlantic Ocean. The 5’-end nucleotide sequence of the mitochondrial control region (about 400 bp) wasExpand
First genetic validation and diagnosis of the short-finned squid species of the genus Illex (Cephalopoda: Ommastrephidae)
Squids of the genus Illex are representative of the family Ommastrephidae and account for 65% of the world’s cephalopod captures. Illex is formed by four taxa distributed throughout the AtlanticExpand
Temporal and spatial variation in settlement of the gastropod Concholepas concholepas in natural and artificial substrata
Settlement of Concholepas concholepas (Gastropoda: Muricidae) on natural and artificial substrata was studied between April 1999 and March 2001 at two sites in central Chile; the Las Cruces MarineExpand
Allozyme analysis of geographical and seasonal variation of Illex coindetii (Cephalopoda: Ommastrephidae) from central Mediterranean and Iberian Atlantic
Previous morphological studies of Illex coindetii from the Mediterranean have shown both juvenile and mature individuals all year round suggesting an homogeneous population pattern, however, seasonalExpand
