[1] The Hispanic peninsula lies at the extreme southwestern tip of Europe, in the direction of Africa and the outer Atlantic. It is partially separated from the rest of Europe by the Pyrenees and forms a geographic stepping stone between that continent and Africa. Despite its unique location, the peninsula does not form a fully unified geographic entity, for it is divided by steep internal mountain ranges and in some regions by virtual deserts. It is second only to Switzerland as the highest…

Assessment of the population structure and temporal changes in spatial dynamics and genetic characteristics of the Atlantic bluefin tuna under a fishery independent framework.
The aims of this PhD project were to assess the accuracy of larval identification methods, determine the genetic structure of modern BFT populations, assess the self-recruitment rate in the Gulf of Mexico and Mediterranean spawning areas, estimate the immigration rate of BFT to feeding aggregations from the various spawn areas, and develop tools capable of investigating the temporal stability of population structuring in the Mediterranean Sea.
