Histological changes and copper accumulation in liver and gills of the Senegales sole, Solea senegalensis.
The results of the study indicate that histology is a successful tool capable of revealing sensitively and selectively even the sublethal effects of heavy metals on the environment and aquatic biota. Expand
The development of functional digestive and metabolic organs in turbot, Scophthalmus maximus
Two important patterns can be recognized in the development of turbot larvae: The structure/function is differentiated at hatching or at the onset of exogenous feeding (afterwards it experiences mainly quantitative but not qualitative growth, i.e., intestine, exocrine pancreas, liver); or the structure/ function is absent in larvae and develops only during metamorphosis.

Sediment genotoxicity in the Tietê River (São Paulo, Brazil): in vitro comet assay versus in situ micronucleus assay studies.
Either in vitro comet assay or in situ micronucleus assay was successful in identifying site-specific differences in genotoxicity, with a high correlation between in situ and in vitro results indicating the relevance of the latter even for environmental studies. Expand
Isolation and Phylogenetic Analysis of Sindbis Viruses from Mosquitoes in Germany
ABSTRACT A molecular survey of 16,057 mosquitoes captured in Southwest Germany during the summer of 2009 demonstrated the presence of Sindbis virus (SINV) in Culex spp. and Anopheles maculipennisExpand
Biosynthesis of Astacus protease, a digestive enzyme from crayfish
The mechanism of enzyme production observed in Astacus differs considerably from vertebrates suggesting an alternative model for synthesis and storage of digestive enzymes. Expand
Sex-specific reaction of liver ultrastructure in zebra fish (Brachydanio rerio) after prolonged sublethal exposure to 4-nitrophenol
The evaluation of the results leads to the conclusion that for toxicological studies on the effects of ‘priority pollutants’ histological and cytological investigations should be incorporated into an integrated methodological scheme. Expand
First record of Stegomyia albopicta (Skuse) (Diptera: Culicidae) in Germany
With the help of the international used tyre trade, the Asian tiger mosquito, Stegomyia albopicta, has been able to expand its range world-wide. In 1979, the species was recorded in Europe for theExpand
Morphology of the female reproductive system of European pea crabs (Crustacea, Decapoda, Brachyura, Pinnotheridae)
It is notable that structure and function of spermathecal secretion are more complex in pinnotherids, and probably more efficient, than in other brachyuran crabs. Expand
Review of the anopheline mosquitoes of Myanmar.
Out of 36 species of anophelines distributed throughout the country, ten species were found to be infected with the malaria parasite. Expand
