Preliminary report on the occurrence of Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans in the Steigerwald, Bavaria, Germany Universiteit Gent
Paragobiocichla, a new genus name for Gobiochromis irvinei Trewavas, 1943 (Teleostei, Cichlidae) KU Leuven
Fish community assemblages in relation to environmental variables in the Lefini River, middle Congo River basin (Republic of Congo) KU Leuven
© SR. This study, one of the few ecological investigations of fishes recently performed in Africa, was undertaken in the Lefini River basin, a large right bank affluent of the Congo River in the Republic of Congo. The study area comprised 12 ecological stations, spread along 103 km of the river. Each station was sampled eight times over a two-year period, with fishing following standardized methods utilizing five monofilament gill nets of ...
Hidden species diversity in Raiamas salmolucius (Teleostei: Cyprinidae) from the Congo basin: two new species based on morphometric evidence KU Leuven
Morphology and ultrastructure of the venom gland in the ant Brachyponera sennaarensis KU Leuven
© Johan Billen and Mohammed Al-Khalifa. We studied the morphology and ultrastructure of the venom gland of queens and workers of the samsum ant Brachyponera sennaarensis, which is known for its very painful sting. The general anatomical features of the gland are similar to those of other ants. The secretory cells do not have a granular endoplasmic reticulum, but contain numerous scattered free ribosomes and a well-developed Golgi apparatus. The ...
Micropanchax petnehazyi, a new species of lampeye cyprinodontiform from the Lufira drainage, Democratic Republic of Congo (Cyprinodontiformes: Poeciliidae) KU Leuven
Delineating species along shifting shorelines: Tropheus (Teleostei, Cichlidae) from the southern subbasin of Lake Tanganyika Vlaams Instituut voor de Zee Universiteit Hasselt KU Leuven
Species delineation is particularly challenging in taxa with substantial intra-specific variation. In systematic studies of fishes, meristics and linear measurements that describe shape are often used to delineate species. Yet, little is known about the taxonomic value of these two types of morphological characteristics. Here, we used Tropheus (Teleostei, Cichlidae) from the southern subbasin of Lake ...
