contrasting patterns of population subdivision and historical demography in three western mediterranean lizard species inferred from mitochondrial dna variation.pleistocene climatic oscillations were a major force shaping genetic variability in many taxa. we analyse the relative effects of the ice ages across a latitudinal gradient in the western mediterranean region, testing two main predictions: (i) species with historical distributions in northern latitudes should have experienced greater loss of suitable habitat, resulting in higher extinction of historical lineages than species distributed in southern latitudes, where the effects of the ice ages we ...200717391406
permanent genetic resources added to molecular ecology resources database 1 april 2013-31 may 2013.this article documents the addition of 234 microsatellite marker loci to the molecular ecology resources database. loci were developed for the following species: acipenser sinensis, aleochara bilineata, aleochara bipustulata, barbus meridionalis, colossoma macropomum, delia radicum, drosophila nigrosparsa, fontainea picrosperma, helianthemum cinereum, liomys pictus, megabalanus azoricus, pelteobagrus vachelli, pleuragramma antarcticum, podarcis hispanica type 1a, sardinella brasiliensis and scle ...201323937578
twenty-one new sequence markers for population genetics, species delimitation and phylogenetics in wall lizards (podarcis spp.).wall lizards of genus podarcis are abundant and conspicuous reptiles inhabiting europe and north africa. in recent years, they have become a popular lizard model for phylogeographical and evolutionary ecology studies. however a lack of suitable nuclear markers currently presents a limitation on analyses of molecular evolution within this genus. we address this limitation by developing twenty-one new primer pairs for polymerase chain reaction (pcr) amplification and sequencing of anonymous sequen ...201323890228
tick infestations (acari: ixodidae) on three lizard species from seraidi (annaba district), northeastern algeria.parasitism of ixodes ricinus on three species of lizards (psammodromus algirus, podarcis vaucheri and timon pater) in northeastern algeria was studied. psammodromus algirus was the most preferred host, t. pater was least preferred. nymphs of i. ricinus were found attached to lizards from march to august in various numbers. most nymphs were collected during march, april and june for p. algirus, and most larvae from april until august. larval stages were found to be mostly associated with p. vauch ...201526071102
