AbstractFull Text

Our primary focus was to assess the tolerance of local broad-leaved species such as Acer platanoides and Quercus cerris to the effect of aqueous extracts of Ailanthus altissima. This type of assessment has been chosen because of the increasingly developing species that visibly colonize a wide range ...

AbstractFull Text

The use of DNA markers to identify products involved in sexual differentiation is still under research in some organisms as the Teleostei fishes, which are important due to their use for consumption, aquarism, genetic and phylogenetic studies. Even with all these research about sexual development...
