In order to illuminate the phylogeography of brown trout (Salmo trutta) populations in the Balkan state of Serbia, the 561 bp 5'-end of mtDNA control region of 101 individuals originating from upland tributaries of the Danubian, Aegean and Adriatic drainages were sequenced and compared to corresponding brown trout sequences obtained in previous studies.(More)
To determine the genetic architecture of trout in Albania, 87 individuals were collected from 19 riverine and lacustrine sites in Albania, FYROM and Greece. All individuals were analyzed for sequence variation in the mtDNA control region. Among fourteen haplotypes detected, four previously unpublished haplotypes, bearing a close relationship to haplotypes(More)
In order to elucidate genetic composition of European grayling (Thymallus thymallus) populations in the Western Balkans, the partial mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) control region was sequenced and 12 microsatellite loci genotyped in 14 populations originating from tributaries of the Adriatic and Danube drainages. Eleven mtDNA haplotypes were found, one confined(More)
BACKGROUND The structure and diversity of grayling (Thymallus thymallus) populations have been well studied in most of its native habitat; however the southernmost populations of the Balkan Peninsula remain largely unexplored. The purpose of this study was to assess the genetic diversity of Serbian grayling populations, detect the impact of stocking and(More)
The study focuses on the phylogenetic origin and genetic diversity of brown trout in the eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula. It further aims to reveal the impact of human-mediated transfers and stocking with non-indigenous trout on the populations in this area. For these purposes, mtDNA control region and microsatellite variation of 204 individuals from(More)
To evaluate whether molecular data support the distinctiveness of Salmo macedonicus (Karaman, 1924) and Salmo pelagonicus Karaman, 1938, and to examine a possible impact of non-native trout translocated from the Drim drainage on the indigenous trout of the Vardar drainage, 187 individuals from 15 populations sampled across both drainages were studied by(More)
The genetic structure of European mudminnow populations throughout the species range was examined using mitochondrial DNA and seven microsatellite loci. Ten mitochondrial haplotypes were detected, suggesting three phylogeographic lineages, which likely diverged during the Early and Middle Pleistocene. These three lineages geographically correspond to three(More)
The evolutionary relationship of grayling populations from the Kama and upper Ural drainage was studied, and the genetic diversity of the local populations was assessed. The complete mitochondrial DNA control region was sequenced and 12 microsatellite loci genotyped. Five previously undescribed closely related haplotypes (Caspian clade) were detected. The(More)
