Colorimetric DNA-based assay for the specific detection and quantification of Ostreopsis cf. ovata and Ostreopsis cf. siamensis in the marine environment
(Harmful Algae, 2019-03-16)
Ostreopsis is a toxic benthic dinoflagellate largely distributed worldwide in tropical and temperate areas. In the Mediterranean Sea, periodic summer blooms have been reported and have become a serious concern due to their ...
First results of phytoplankton spatial dynamics in two NW-Mediterranean bays from Chlorophyll-a estimates using Sentinel 2: potential implications for aquaculture
(Remote Sensing, 2019-07-25)
Shellfish aquaculture has a major socioeconomic impact on coastal areas, thus it is necessary to develop support tools for its management. In this sense, phytoplankton monitoring is crucial, as it is the main source of ...
Diversity and structure of fragmented populations of a threatened endemic cyprinodontid (Aphanius sophiae) inferred from genetics and otolith morphology: Implications for conservation and management
(Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research, 2019-12-02)
The assessment of population structure and genetic diversity is crucial for the management and conservation of threatened species. Natural and artificial barriers to dispersal (i.e., gene flow) increase populations’ ...
Detection of Ostreopsis cf. ovata in environmental samples using an electrochemical DNA-based biosensor
(Science of the Total Environment, 2019-06-28)
Ostreopsis cf. ovata is a benthic microalga distributed in tropical and temperate regions worldwide which produces palytoxins (PlTXs). Herein, an electrochemical biosensor for the detection of this toxic microalga is ...
Hydropeaking effects on movement patterns of brown trout (Salmo trutta L.)
(River Research and Applications, 2019-04-23)
Radiotelemetry was used to investigate seasonal movement and home range of brown trout Salmo trutta (size range 188–420 mm fork length, N = 30) in two reaches of the Noguera Pallaresa River (Ebro Basin, north‐east Spain) ...
