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 Among fourteen haplotypes detected, four previously unpublished haplotypes, bearing a close relationship to haplotypes(More)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 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)
The objectives of the study were to determine the phylogeographic structure of brown trout (Salmo trutta) in Morocco, elucidate their colonization patterns in North-West Africa and identify the mtDNA lineages involved in this process. We also aimed to resolve whether certain brown trout entities are also genetically distinct. Sixty-two brown trout from(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)
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 provide(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)
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)
Studies on assemblages of freshwater fishes along elevational gradients of rivers are lacking, even in Europe. In this paper we have explored the entire range of elevational gradients existing in the European part of Russia. We analyzed how fish biodiversity (species richness, abundance, diversity indices) at 435 river sites differed by elevation. The(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)
Huchen Hucho hucho from the Drina River (Serbia) revealed recently the decrease in breakpoint values for both standard length (Sl) and weight (w) in relation to the values recorded in 1999 from 110 cm to 98.4 cm and from 16.5 kg to 10.5 kg, respectively. That might indicate to the change in certain population parameters that could have an influence to the(More)
