Article
Full-text available
We tested hypotheses of whether populations from the Tibetan Plateau belong to A. tibetiana Abatzopoulos, Zhang & Sorgeloos,1998 and whether a population from Kazakhstan is a new species, using other Asian species of Artemia as outgroups. We conducted a multitrait phylogenetic study based on the complete mitogenome, mitochondrial (COI, 12S, 16S) an...

The complete mitochondrial genome of the endemic Malagasy honey bee Apis mellifera unicolor is 16,373 bp and comprises 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, two ribosomal RNA genes, and a control region. The mitochondrial genome closely resembles mitogenomes of other published Apis mellifera subspecies, and the phylogenetic analysis sugge...

Sequencing the mitochondrial genome of the Carniolan honey bee, Apis mellifera carnica, revealed 16,358 bp, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, two rRNA genes, and a control region. Phylogenetic analysis supported a close relationship to another south-eastern European (C-lineage) honey bee, A. m. ligustica.
Article
Full-text available
Backgrounds: Apis mellifera scutellata and A.m. capensis (the Cape honey bee) are western honey bee subspecies indigenous to the Republic of South Africa (RSA). Both bees are important for biological and economic reasons. First, A.m. scutellata is the invasive "African honey bee" of the Americas and exhibits a number of traits that beekeepers cons...
Article
Full-text available
Apis mellifera capensis Eschscholtz and A.m. scutellata Lepeletier are subspecies of western honey bees that are indigenous to the Republic of South Africa (RSA). Both subspecies have invasive potential and are organisms of concern for areas outside their native range, though they are important bees to beekeepers, agriculture, and the environment w...
Article
Full-text available
The complete mitochondrial genome of the western honey bee subspecies Apis mellifera lamarckii was sequenced. This mitochondrial genome is 16,589 bp in length with 37 classical eukaryotic mitochondrial genes and an A + T-rich region. Gene directions and arrangements are similar to those of other Apis mitogenomes. Seven genes begin with ATT, four wi...
Article
Full-text available
The complete mitochondrial genome of the western honey bee subspecies Apis mellifera meda was sequenced. This mitochondrial genome is 16,248 bp in length, with 37 classical eukaryotic mitochondrial genes and an A + T-rich region. Gene direction and arrangement are similar to those of other Apis mitogenomes. All genes initiate with ATT (six genes),...
Article
Full-text available
The complete mitochondrial genome of Apis nigrocincta was sequenced. The mitochondrial genome is a circular molecule of 15,855 bp, including 37 classical eukaryotic mitochondrial regions and an A + T-rich region. Gene directions and arrangements are similar to those of other Apis mitogenomes. Most genes initiated with ATT, though ATG and ATA were a...
Article
Full-text available
The complete mitochondrial genome of Apis nuluensis Tingek was sequenced. The mitochondrial genome was 15,843 bp in length, with 37 classical eukaryotic mitochondrial genes and an A + T-rich region. Gene directions and arrangements were similar to those of other Apis mitogenomes. Most genes initiate with ATT (though ATG and ATC also were used) and...
Article
Full-text available
The complete mitochondrial genome of Apis mellifera monticola was sequenced and annotated. The genome is 16,343 bp in length and encodes all 37 mitochondrial genes with an A + T content of 84.8%. Gene directions and arrangements are identical to those of other sequenced mitogenomes in Apis. Most genes initiated with ATT, though ATG, ATA, and ATC al...
Article
Full-text available
We characterized the complete mitogenome sequence of the Cape honey bee, Apis mellifera capensis, from South Africa. The circle genome is 16,470 bp in length, with the base composition of 43.2% A, 9.6% C, 5.6% G, and 41.5% T. The assembled mitogenome has 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 22 transfer RNAs, two ribosomal RNA genes, and one control regi...
Article
Full-text available
We characterized the complete mitogenome sequence of the South African hybrid honey bee Apis mellifera capensis × Apis mellifera scutellata using genome skimming. The mitochondrial genome was a circular molecule 16,340 bp in length with a gene organization identical to that of the other A. mellifera mitogenomes. The base composition is 43.2% A, 9.7...

Urmia Lake, an endorheic salt lake in northwestern Iran, was registered in the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands as a wetland of international importance, also a UNESCO biosphere reserve. In this review, we have updated our last checklist in 2014 with available information on the biodiversity of the lake.
Article
Brine shrimps Artemia (Crustacea, Anostraca) are a group of cosmopolitan extremophile microcrustaceans which are composed of a complex of six sexual species and numerous Eurasian Haplotype Complex (EHC) lineages. In the present study, we analyzed a partial sequence of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) and nuclear Internal trans...
