Annotated checklist of the fishes of the Persian Gulf: Diversity and conservation status
- Biology, Environmental Science
This checklist aims to reviews and summarize the results of the systematic researches on the Persian Gulf ichthyofauna that has been carried out for more than 200 years based on literature and taxon occurrence data obtained from natural history and new fish collections.
Ocean acidification exacerbates the impacts of global warming on embryonic little skate, Leucoraja erinacea (Mitchill)
- Environmental Science
Genetic population structure of the polkadot skate (Dipturus chinensis) around Japan, based on mitochondrial DNA sequences and polymorphic microsatellite loci
- BiologyFishery Bulletin
The polkadot skate is clearly structured into 3 genetically discrete populations around Japan that should be treated as independent management units for management of this species in the future.
Management Implications for Skates and Rays Based on Analysis of Life History Parameters
- Environmental ScienceFrontiers in Marine Science
The life history (age and growth and reproduction) parameters of 35 species (41 stocks) of skates and rays were analyzed using multivariate analyses. Three groups were categorized by cluster analysis…
Polymorphism in Conservative Structures? The Scapulocoracoids in Skates Genus Psammobatis (Chondrichthyes, Arhynchobatidae) and the Validity of P. parvacauda
- BiologyFrontiers in Marine Science
Results showed intraspecific variation in scapulocoracoids, as was previously observed in Sympterygia species, and this structure should not be used as a diagnostic character in skates, at least for these genera.
Morphological Abnormalities of Indian Ring Skate, Orbiraja powelli (Alcock, 1898) (Rajiformes: Rajidae) Collected in the Southwest Coast of India
- BiologyThalassas: An International Journal of Marine Sciences
Morphological abnormalities were observed for five specimens of Indian ring skate, Orbiraja powelli, collected in the southwest coast of India and molecular methods did not show variations in the specimens collected.
First substantiated record of Raja asterias Delaroche, 1809 (Elasmobranchii: Rajiformes: Rajidae) in the Gulf of Cádiz, North-eastern Atlantic
- Environmental Science
Based on this record, previously reported catches of the Mediterranean starry ray in the Atlantic should be confirmed, and if so, these populations should be included in future assessments of this vulnerable species and in the description of its geographic distribution.
