Molecular phylogeny of the genus Capoeta (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) in Anatolia, Turkey
It is suggested that four undescribed Capoeta species may exist in Anatolia freshwater and were shaped under paleogeographic conditions such as Pleistocene climate changes in Quarternary period as well as tectonic uplift and faulting, which probably has not changed up to now. Expand
Use of rpoB sequences and rep-PCR for phylogenetic study of Anoxybacillus species
The results of this study show that rpoB and rep-PCR provide rapid and reliable methods for molecular typing of Anoxybacillus species, and rapid and reproducible repetitive extragenic palindromic fingerprinting techniques constitute a suitable molecular approach for the validation and maintenance of taxonomy within the Anoxy bacillus genus.

Molecular phylogeny of Turkish Trachurus species (Perciformes: Carangidae) inferred from mitochondrial DNA analyses
Genetic distances indicated that T. mediterraneus and T. picturatus are more closely related to each other than either is to T. trachurus, and the existence of several species-specific nucleotide sites that can be used to discriminate between the three species is revealed. Expand
Population structure and genetic analysis of narrow-clawed crayfish (Astacus leptodactylus) populations in Turkey
The pattern of genetic variation among Turkish A. leptodactylus populations, therefore, suggests that the unrevealed intraspecific genetic structure is independent of geographic tendency and congruent with the previously reported geographic distribution and number of subspecies. Expand
The phylogenetic position of Turkish populations within the European Bitterling, Rhodeus amarus (Osteichthyes: Cyprinidae)
The results presented in this study suggest that Anatolian haplotypes should be exhaustively evaluated at the lineage level and related to the three separate Anatolia groups identified within the European Bitterling, which probably originated in the Middle Pleistocene. Expand
DNA barcoding of the Genus Capoeta (Actinopterygii: Cyprinidae) from Anatolia
The results of present study indicated that the COI gene could be a suitable DNA barcode marker for the most of scrapers species identification and delimitation with approximately 81% success rate. Expand
The systematic position of Acanthalburnus microlepis (De Filippi, 1863) and contributions to the genus Acanthobrama (Cyprinidae: Leuciscinae) in Turkey
In this study, the systematic position of Acanthalburnus microlepis from Kura and Aras basins is clarified and some notes on the taxonomy of the Acanthobrama species distributed in Turkey are given.Expand
Salmo tigridis , a new species of trout from the Tigris River, Turkey (Teleostei: Salmonidae) DAVUT TURAN (Turkey), MAURICE KOTTELAT (Switzerland) & YUSUF BEKTAŞ (Turkey)
Salmo tigridis , new species, from the Tigris River drainage, Turkey, is distinguished from the other species of Salmo in Turkey and adjacent basins by having a greater number of scale rows betweenExpand
Morphological variation among Atlantic horse mackerel, Trachurus trachurus populations from Turkish coastal waters.
It is confirmed that metric characters are much less effective for discriminating between T. trachurus populations than morphometric characters, which is expressed higher distances between samples, and a small degree of spatial separation in morphology in T.trachurus among the studied localities.
