Abstract. The aim of this paper is to describe morphological characteristics of fresh- water triclads in Herzegovina and to provide a key for their. 1 Introduction. The polyclads are the most primitive free living flatworms of the phylum Platyhelminthes. These worms are dorso-ventrally. -Eight new species belonging to the genus Cycloporus (Platyhelminthes. Polycladida,. Euryleptidae) are described from Australasian waters including eastern.

There are species of microturbellarians registered for Brazil, with records distributed in 12 states.

Rozas for his advice on the analytical methodologies. They are abundant in freshwater and marine ecosystems and may occur in moist terrestrial habitats. Download full text Bahasa Indonesia, 6 pages. None of the sexual individuals analysed had a significant result.

In both cases, the hypotheses contrast with the poor dispersion capability assumed for freshwater planarians [ 1617 ].

Phylum Platyhelminthes

Don’t have an account? Heads and tails; adaptational aspects of asexual reproduction in freshwater triclads. Therefore, direct observation of the objects are needed, hence the students can abtain concept by learning, not only memorizing. The arrows represent fission black and regeneration blue cycles. To study the possible expansion of Jjrnal.

Microturbellarians (Platyhelminthes and Acoelomorpha) in Brazil: invisible organisms?

Collectively, these data could indicate that the central Mediterranean is the region from where dispersal took place. Classical, Early, and Medieval Plays plaryhelminthes Playwrights: Open in a separate window. Polymerase mistake versus heteroplasmy test. Yacoubi for their collaboration on sample collection. The black dots represent intermediate non-present haplotypes, the lines connecting the haplotypes ;latyhelminthes present or not represent one nucleotide change, and the size of each circle is proportional to the haplotype frequency in the sample.

Paludicolaa European immigrant into North American fresh waters. Therefore, we assumed that errors in the PCR process followed a Poisson distribution, and the expected mean was computed using the polymerase error rate 6. On the other hand, as expected, heteroplasmy is not observed in sexual individuals. The competition between D. We tested the distribution of changes in the cloned sequences of both those individuals in which platyhelmithes previous test could not reject that the substitutions seen are due to Taq error non-heteroplasmic and in those where the enzyme cannot explain the number of changes observed heteroplasmic.


Considering the scant information on this group in Brazil, which is also the situation of the Neotropical microturbellarians in general, some plstyhelminthes should be proposed.

Phylum Platyhelminthes Phylum Platyhelminthes Chapter: As expected from their fissiparous mode of reproduction, in half of all the analysed localities many individuals have multiple heteroplasmic haplotypes.

Moreover, although the full evidence for a mitochondrial sequence to be functional and not present platyhel,inthes the nucleus numts can be reached only by sequencing mRNAs cDNAs from the individuals [ 36 ], in our case a variety of evidence makes us think that the diverse sequences found within single planarians are not numts. Most studies on Brazilian microturbellarians had taxonomical purposes and were done in the years Click here for file 26K, xlsx.

Following the same reasoning, one would not expect to find heteroplasmy, or different copies of mitochondrial genes within an individual in sexual organisms. Finally four independent climatic variables were used: Our hypothesis jkrnal then that D.

Int J Dev Biol. Genetic uniformity characterizes the invasive spread of water hyacinth Eichhornia crassipesa clonal aquatic plant. Background Dugesia sicula Lepori, is a freshwater planarian phylum Platyhelminthes, order Tricladida, suborder Continenticola typically found in ponds, streams and springs close to the Mediterranean coast.

The haplotype network based on cloned sequences. Mitochondrial pseudogenes are pervasive and often insidious in the snapping shrimp genus Alpheus.

Molecular barcoding and phylogeography of sexual and asexual freshwater planarians of the genus Dugesia in the Western Mediterranean Platyhelminthes, Tricladida, Dugesiidae Mol Phylogenet Evol.


Table 3 Length of amplified fragments. Overview of life cycles in model species of the genus Dugesia Platyhelminthes: The final network contained sequences and 57 different haplotypes were observed; haplotypes A, B and C were the most frequent and appeared 46, 43 and 16 times, respectively. To troubleshoot, please check our FAQsand if you can’t find the answer there, please contact us.

Am J Hum Genet. The number of mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid genomes in mouse L and human HeLa cells: For the eastern Mediterranean, some populations described in Israel as Type 4 by Bromley [ 63 ] showed karyotypes and morphological characteristics similar to those of D.

It mostly comprises fissiparous populations asexual reproduction by body division and regenerationmost likely sexually sterile, and characterized by an extremely low genetic diversity interpreted as the consequence of a recent anthropic expansion. Haplotype B was present in individuals from 18 populations, the majority of which were found northwest of the Mediterranean. The crossed-out names of the individuals represent non-heteroplasmic specimens, and their sequences were not included in the network.

None of the originally described sexual populations can be currently found [ 4 ]; but, some sexual populations in northern Africa Tunisia and Algeria have been recently reported [ 5 – 7 ].

Civil War American History: Because some populations had only one sequenced specimen s04, s18, and s30 or all of their individuals exhibited polymorphic positions, only individuals from 51 populations could be analysed. In this area, D. Ponte Saraceni on river Simeto, Sicily.
