About this book

Brings together a wide range of techniques and approaches to the study of genetics of organisms living in freshwater or marine habitats. Contents: Speciation and wide scale genetic differentiation. Gene flow and population structure. Heterozygosity, herosis and adaptation. DNA technology and genetics of aquatic invertebrates. DNA technology and phylogeny of fish. Genetics of aquatic clonal organisms. Chromosomal genetics. Genetics and pollution. Genetics and aquaculture.


Contents

Genetic divergence between natural populations of Mediterranean sand hoppers (Crustacea, Amphipoda), E. De Matthaeis, et al; a comparison between morphological and genetic data in two species of "Tethya" (Porifera, Demospongiae), G. Bavastrello and M. Sara; wide scale genetic differentiation among pink shrimp "Pandalus borealis" populations, Y.P. Kartavtsev; the evolution of genetic divergence at protein loci among anadromous and nonandromous populations of Atlantic salmon "Salmo salar", E. Verspoor; pattern of gene flow in the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea, J.A.H. Benzie; the different levels of population structuring of the dogwhelk, "Nucella lapillus", along the South Devon coast, J. Goudet, et al; genetic variation and localized gene flow in the fairy shrimp, "Branchiopodopsis wolfi" in temporary rain-water pools in south-eastern Botswana, B.J. Riddoch, et al, genetic structure of the palourde "Ruditapes decussatus L." in the Mediterranean, P. Borsa, et al, geographic structure and gene flow in the manini (convict surgeonfish, "Acanthurus triostegus) in the south-central Pacific, S. Planes, et al, does variance in reproductive success limit the effective population sizes of marine organisms?, D. Hedgecock; heterosis and heterozygote deficiences in marine bivalves - more light?, P. Gaffney, settlement behaviour and microgeographic population structure in the ??????? "Semi balarus balanoides", E. Holm and E. Bourget; genetic variation and population structure in the tropical marine bivalve "Anomalocardia brasiliana" (Gmelin 1791) (Veneridae), E. DeSilva and A. Sole-Cava; genetic variability in the Red Sea - Mediterranean colonizing system, D. Lavee and U. Ritte; discrimination at the specific level by means of partial 28S ribosomal RNA sequencing - inferred phytogenetic trees of Antarctic brood protecting Schizasterid Echinoids (Echinodermata), J-P, Feral, et al; contrasting patterns of restriction site polymorphism in the deep - sea scallop ("Placopecten magellanicus") and Atlantic cod ("Gadus morhua") revealed by cDNA probes, G.H. Pogson; comparisons of mitochondrial DNA variation in four alosid species as revealed by the total genome, the NADH dehydrogenase I and cytochrome b regions, R.W. Chapman, et al; cloning of highly variable minisatellite DNA single locus probes for brown trout ("Salmo trutta L") from a phagemid library, P.A.
