The spawning area location and the larval migration characteristics of Anguilla mossambica were studied through the examination of early life-history traits (ELHT) inferred from otolith microstructural analyses of 122 glass A. mossambica collected along the eastern coast of Madagascar, in the south-western Indian Ocean. Backcalculated hatching dates of(More)
Freshwater populations of the Indo-pacific region are characterized by a large proportion of amphidromous species. In this paper, we analyse habitat selection by two amphidromous sympatric Gobiidae: Sicyopterus lagocephalus and Cotylopus acutipinnis in Reunion Island. A sampling method using Point Abundance Sampling (PAS) was conducted in 12 rivers. We used(More)
Amphidromous gobies are usually nest spawners. Females lay a large number of small eggs under stones or onto plant stems, leaves or roots while males take care of the clutch until hatching. This study investigates the breeding pattern and paternal investment of Sicyopterus lagocephalus in a stream on Reunion Island. In February 2007 and January 2010, a(More)
In the Indo-Pacific region, rivers are inhabited by amphidromous gobies. They are often subjected to a heavy fishing pressure, highlighting the urgent need to acquire knowledge on their biology for management purposes. This study investigated the reproductive strategy of Sicyopterus lagocephalus, a widespread amphidromous goby, in two rivers of La Réunion(More)
The relative proportions of both somatostatin-14 and its precursors somatostatin-28 and the 15 Kdalton prosomatostatin were evaluated by radioimmunoassay in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with Alzheimer's disease. It was observed that the patients have a lowered content in the tetradecapeptide somatostatin while they exhibit a significant increase in(More)
