Karyotype and other chromosomal characteristics of the Appenine endemic cyprinid fish, Toscana stream chub Squalius lucumonis, were analysed using conventional banding and FISH with 45S and 5S rDNA probes. The diploid chromosome number (2n = 50) and karyotype characteristics including pericentromeric heterochromatic blocks and GC-rich CMA3-positive sites(More)
The Italian bleak, Alburnus albidus, is a freshwater species endemic of southern Italy, that was recently classified as vulnerable in the IUCN Red List, due to the impact of introduced species. In this study, a combined genetic (mitochondrial cyt b and nuclear ITS1 DNA markers) and morphometric approach was applied to five populations from the whole range(More)
