The history of Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests in eastern South America: inferences from the genetic structure of the tree Astronium urundeuva (Anacardiaceae)
Today, the Seasonally Dry Tropical Forests (SDTF) of eastern South America occur as large, well‐defined nuclei (e.g. Caatinga in the northeast) and as smaller enclaves within other vegetations (e.g.Expand

Small effective number of parents (Nb) inferred for a naturally spawned cohort of juvenile European flat oysters Ostrea edulis
The great fecundity and very high larval mortality of most marine invertebrates and fish make possible substantial variance in the number of offspring contributed by adults to subsequent generations.Expand

The history of extant Ilex species (Aquifoliaceae): evidence of hybridization within a Miocene radiation.
The history and diversification of the genus Ilex (Aquifoliaceae), based on 108 different species (116 specimens), are inferred from the analysis of two nuclear (ITS and nepGS) and three plastidExpand

Identification and inheritance of (GA/TC)n and (AC/GT)n repeats in the European flat oyster Ostrea edulis (L.).
Twelve microsatellites were isolated from a partial genomic library of Ostrea edulis using (GA/TC)n and (AC/GT)n probes and were subsequently sequenced. We estimate that, on average, 12,700 (GA/TC)nExpand

Species delimitation and relationships: The dance of the seven veils
An increasing number of studies using genetic data at the generic and species levels reveal complex patterns of rela- tionships among populations and species. Incomplete lineage sorting andExpand

A novel method to produce triploids in bivalve molluscs by the use of 6-dimethylaminopurine
Abstract To date, pressure shock, heat shock, and chemical treatment with cytochalasin B have been the major methods used to induce triploid bivalves. In this study, triploid bivalves were induced byExpand

Genetic Evidence for Complexity in Ethnic Differentiation and History in East Africa
The Afro‐Asiatic and Nilo‐Saharan language families come into contact in Western Ethiopia. Ethnic diversity is particularly high in the South, where the Nilo‐Saharan Nyangatom and the Afro‐AsiaticExpand

The intraspecific genetic variability of siliceous and calcareous Gentiana species is shaped by contrasting demographic and re-colonization processes.
The Ciminalis section of Gentiana comprises seven species, two of them growing on siliceous substrates (G. alpina and G. acaulis), the other ones being calcareous taxa (G. clusii, G. angustifolia, G.Expand

Patterns of diversification amongst tropical regions compared: a case study in Sapotaceae
Species diversity is unequally distributed across the globe, with the greatest concentration occurring in the tropics. Even within the tropics, there are significant differences in the numbers ofExpand

A genetic and metabolic basis for faster growth among triploids induced by blocking meiosis I but not meiosis II in the larviparous European flat oyster, Ostrea edulis L.
This study establishes a genetic and metabolic basis to faster triploid growth in the oyster Ostrea edulis. Triploidy was induced using cytochalasin B, and image analysis of biopsied tissue employedExpand
