Diversity, biogeography and conservation of freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionida) in East and Southeast Asia
TLDR
A data review confirmed the presence of 228 native and 3 non-native Unionida, rendering the region a global hotspot of freshwater mussel diversity, and species richness was highest in China and Cambodia when correcting for country area. Expand
Freshwater mussels (Bivalvia: Unionidae) from the Rising Sun (Far East Asia): Phylogeny, systematics, and distribution.
TLDR
It is revealed that Unionidae species richness in Far East Asia is 30% higher than previously assumed, counting 43 species (41 native + 2 alien) within two Unionidae subfamilies, the Unioninae (32 + 1) and Gonideinee (9 + 1). Expand
Sperm Sphere in Unionid Mussels (Bivalvia: Unionidae)
TLDR
Spermatozoa may maintain their motility for a long time in the form of a sperm sphere and the use of sperm spheres may allow the fertilization of eggs discharged into the gill chambers of females far away from the male. Expand
Food resources of shrimp-eating cichlid fishes in Lake Tanganyika
Species, size composition, and diurnal variation in abundance of shrimp (Atyidae) were examined and compared with food habits of 14 species of shrimp-eating cichlids in Lake Tanganyika. In theExpand
Molecular markers reveal genetic contamination of endangered freshwater pearl mussels in pearl culture farms in Japan
TLDR
Findings suggest that native H. schlegeli might be threatened by hybridization with H. cumingii, a closely related Chinese species introduced to Japan approximately 30 years ago, and surveys of the genetic compositions of freshwater pearl mussels showed evidences of hybridization between the two species in culture farms in Lakes Kasumigaura and Biwa. Expand
Food resources of shrimp-eating cichlid fishes in Lake Tanganyika
TLDR
Although three kinds of shrimp-eaters, each with a unique prey catching technique and preferred shrimp size, were recognized, all shrimp-eating cichlids preyed on shrimp of greatly overlapping sizes, confirming that partitioning of food resources takes place via different capturing techniques.
