Biodiversity is mostly discussed at the level of species, but genetic variation within species may be as important as variation between species. It enables organisms to adapt to environmental changes. The requirement for genetic variation differs however widely between species and groups of species. Animal species at the top of the food web, such as large carnivorous mammals, tend to have a remarkably small genetic variation, presumably due to a constant ecological niche. Many other organisms… Expand
Aquatic Plant Biodiversity and DNA Barcoding
This review describes a summary of available information on historical background of DNA barcoding, biodiversity in aquatic habitats, and available resources of DNAbarcoding in marine and freshwater systems. Expand
Genetic diversity and structure analysis of Linum glaucum populations
The inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) technique was used to estimate infraspecific variation in different populations of L. glaucum and some of these loci have good discriminating power. Expand
Genome-wide population structure and genetic diversity of Japanese whiting (Sillago japonica) inferred from genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS): Implications for fisheries management
Given the complex pattern of genetic differentiation of Japanese whiting among Chinese and Japanese populations, it is suggested treating them as different management units in utilization of offshore fisheries resources. Expand
Infraspecific morphological and genome size variations in Linum glaucum in Iran
The morphological traits associated with the nuclear genome size were used for identification offraspecific variations in the nine populations of L. glaucum, causing to difference between the populations and lead to creation of ecotype andecophene in the studied populations. Expand
Morphological and genetic seasonal dynamics of European eel Anguilla anguilla recruitment in southern France.
A situation of genetic patchiness with fluctuating parental contribution can thus best explain the patterns observed, although the existence of two separate spawning periods cannot be excluded. Expand
Infra-specific variation of Acer cappadocicum (Sapindaceae): morphological and molecular approaches
Results of the study indicated no correlation between variations in leaf-morphology, ISSRs, and ITS, however, there are two main clusters in ITS tree without discrete morphological characters showing differentiation and variability in ITS region within this species. Expand
Analysis of the agrobiodiversity of home gardens in the tropical regions of México
Traditional land use systems such as home gardens serve as a reservoir for plant genetic resources. Mexico is one of the centre of origin of cultivated plants and one of the richest countries inExpand
Infraspecific variations in Linum album based on the Determination of Special Stations approach in Iran
The results of the study have shown that the different populations of L. album were adapted to their habitat and the ranges of phenotype plasticity were high between populations which led to creation of ecomorphs. Expand
Diversity, biogeography and host specificity of kelp endophytes with a focus on the genera Laminarionema and Laminariocolax (Ectocarpales, Phaeophyceae)
The results suggest that specific host-endophyte patterns could exist locally, as found in kelps in Brittany where all endophytes isolated from S. latissima were L. elsbetiae, and those isolated from Laminaria hyperborea were Laminariocolax atlanticus and L. aecidioides. Expand
Success of classical biocontrol agent Torymus sinensis within its expanding range in Europe
It is concluded that T. sinensis established viable and genetically diverse populations and successfully spread naturally from Italy across Slovenia to Croatia and Hungary. Expand


The Genetics and Biology of Drosophila
This is the first attempt since 1925 to publish a comprehensive account of the biology and genetics of Drosophila and it aims to collate the dauntingly large literature on the subject and to make more accessible the private language ot the Dosophilist. Expand
