Article
Full-text available
Invasive freshwater molluscs of the genus Physella (Gastropoda: Physidae) were discovered in the basin of the Dong Nai River, Vietnam for the first time. Based on the analysis of morphological features and the nucleotide sequence of the fragment of the COI mitochondrial gene, these molluscs were identified as belonging to the species Physella acuta...

Full-text available
Rivers of Europe, Second Edition, presents the latest update on the only primary source of complete and comparative baseline data on the biological and hydrological characteristics of more than 180 of the highest profile rivers in Europe. With even more full-color photographs and maps, the book includes conservation information on current patterns...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter contains a comprehensive description of the Volga River, the largest river in Europe, and its main tributaries, the Kama, Oka, Sheksna. It starts with a review of human history and biogeographical setting including paleogeography of the basin, as well as description of physiography and climate, and features of hydrological and biogeoch...
Article

Variability of the first invasive population of C. fluminea (O.F. Müller, 1774) from the Volga basin is studied using the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I gene fragment (COI mtDNA), and morphological features of the shells are characterized. A comparison with C. fluminalis (O.F. Müller, 1774) from the Kura River basin is made in order t...

Full-text available
Изучено генетическое разнообразие фрагмента митохондриального гена первой субъединицы ци¬тохром с-оксидазы (COI) и дана характеристика морфологических особенностей первой инвазионной популяции восточной корбикулы C. fluminea (O.F. Müller, 1774), обнаруженной для бассейна р. Волги. С целью исключить ошибки при определении видовой принадлежности пров...
Article
Full-text available
Invasive mollusk of genus Corbicula, a new species for the Volga River basin, has been found in the Gorky Reservoir in the zone of exposure to the heated waters of the cooler pond of the Kostromskaya thermal electric power station. According to the morphological features and nucleotide sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome c-oxidase I (COI) gen...

Изучено генетическое разнообразие первой балтийской популяции чужеродного двустворчатого моллюска Rangia cuneata(G.B. Sowerby I, 1831) путём секвенирования фрагмента митохондриального гена цитохром с-оксидазы, первой субъединицы (COI). Установлено, что Вислинский залив населяет единая популяция вселенца, обладающая высоким уровнем генетического раз...
Article
The genetic diversity of the first Baltic population of the bivalve mollusk Rangia cuneata (G.B. Sowerby I, 1831) is studied on the basis of mtDNA COI gene sequences. It is shown that a single population of this alien species with a high level of genetic diversity inhabits the whole Vistula Lagoon. It is assumed that common rangia penetrated to the...

This review summarizes published data on the genetic markers used in studies of dreissenide invasions. Causes of genetic differences between local populations are discussed. It is shown that information about the genetic diversity of populations obtained by marker polymorphism analysis should be compared to study invasion directions.
Article
Full-text available
Dreissenids display a high diversity of shell morphology. Taxonomic keys based on shell morphology are not always able to differentiate these species with confidence. In such cases, genetic markers are useful in addition to morphological features. Typical and atypical dreissenid individuals are analyzed in this study. It is demonstrated that the po...
Article
Full-text available
The freshwater pearl mussel family Margaritiferidae includes 13 extant species, which are all listed by IUCN as endangered or vulnerable taxa. In this study, an extensive spatial sampling of Margaritifera spp. across the Russian Far East (Amur Basin, Kamchatka Peninsula, Kurile Archipelago and Sakhalin Island) was conducted for a revision of their...
Article
Full-text available
The diagnostic importance of the character of curvature of the frontal section of shell valves in Bivalvia on the basis of determining the constant angle of the logarithmic spiral is discussed. The contours of the frontal section of shell valves in several species of mollusks of the families Margaritiferidae and Sphaeri� idae have been analyzed. It...

This paper continues a discussion on the number of pearl mussel species of the genus Margaritifera in northern Europe. A biometric study of 1711 pearl mussel Margaritifera margaritifera shells from 15 rivers in Russia and Latvia (basins of the White and Baltic seas) has been conducted. All the examined samples fall into two groups: the northern gro...

Статья продолжает дискуссию о том, сколько видов жемчужниц рода Margaritifera распространено на севере Европы. Проведено биометрическое исследование 1711 раковин жемчужницы Margaritifera margaritifera из 15 рек России и Латвии (бассейны Белого и Балтийского морей). Все выборки подразделяются на две группы: северную (раковины в среднем более уплощен...

The expansion of the zebra mussel, Dreissena polymorpha, is observing during at least two hundred years. It has increased the speed at the end of the twentieth century. Adaptation of these species to new natural conditions beyond bounds of ecological optimum is interesting in evolutionary aspect. However, populations of the northern boundaries of t...

Dreissenids display a high diversity of shell morphology, and it is frequently difficult to ascribe some individuals from mixed populations to one of the two species, Dreissena polymorpha (Pallas, 1771) or D. bugensis (Andrusov, 1897). Presumably, such individuals may be interspecific hybrids. We have analyzed species-specific allozyme loci of the...
