New species of the genus Scaphocalanus (Calanoida : Scolecithricidae) from the Iskenderun Bay - northeastern Levantine Basin

A new calanoid copepod species Scaphocalanus emine n. sp. is described for the first time from the Iskenderun Bay, northeastern Levantine Basin. S. emine is similar to S. affinis (Sars, 1905) having both identical orientation of the posterolateral corners of the cephalothorax and a median crest on the forehead. The new species is also similar in some features to S. affinis in the structure of Re1P1- lacking the outer marginal spine and by the presence of the rounded apex on the distal internal margin. It differs from S. affinis as the median crest on the forehead is smaller and due to the presence of a rudimentary endopod furnished with an apical spine on the P5. Originality in construction of the P1 and P5 distinguish the new species from other Scaphocalanus species.


Turriglomina ? anatolica, n. sp (Foraminiferida) from the cretaceous of North-Western Anatolia (Turkey): Remarks on the evolution of Mesozoic meandrospirids
Altıner, Demir; Zaninetti, L; Martini, R (2001-12-01)
A new species of foraminifer, Turriglomina ? anatolica, n.sp., is erected from the Lower Cretaceous of North-Western Anatolia, Turkey,. The species is characterized by, a well developed meandrospirid stage followed by, a rectilinear, helicoidal stage. The morphology of the new taxon is similar to that of the Triassic genus Turriglomina Zaninetti; however, the generic attribution is doubtful as the evolutionary path of meandrospirids is not documented from Triassic to Cretaceous.
Genetic diversity of marginal populations of Populus euphratica Oliv. from highly fragmented river ecosystems
Kansu, Çiğdem; Kaya, Zeki (2020-01-01)
Populus euphratica Oliv. (Euphrates poplar) is one of the naturally distributed poplar species and limited to south and southwestern Turkey. The species possesses great importance for both renewable energy resources and persistence of a healthy river ecosystem. Due to increased habitat destructions and fragmentation by human activities, the distribution area of this species has become narrower. Hence, searching for potential genetic diversity present in species' genetic resources is of great importance in t...
New zeotype borophosphates with chiral tetrahedral topology: (H)(0.5)M-1.25(H2O)(1.5)[BP2O8]center dot H2O (M = Co(II) and Mn(II))
Yılmaz, Ayşen; Yildirim, LT; Bu, X; Kizilyalli, M; Stucky, GD (Wiley, 2005-06-01)
Two new isostructural open-framework zeotype transition metal borophosphate compounds, (H)(0.5)M-1.25(H2O)(1.5)[BP2O8].H2O (M=Co(II) and Mn(II)) were synthesized by mild hydrothermal method. The structure of compounds were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction which have ordered, alternating, vertex-sharing BO4, PO4, and (MO4)OM(H2O)(2) groups with hexagonal, P 6(1) 2 2 (No 178) space group and unit cell parameters for Co a= 9.4960(6) angstrom, c= 15.6230(13) angstrom, for Mn a= 9.6547(12) angst...
First record of musca domestica calleva walker, 1849 (diptera: Muscidae) from southern turkey
Bilgin, Cemal Can; Kence, Aykut (Informa UK Limited, 1995-01-01)
The first record of Musca domestica calleva from Incekum. Antalya (Turkey) is presented. Multivariate comparison of the morphology as well as comparisons of mating behaviour and malathion resistance with other housefly populations support the diagnosis. The zoogeographical significance of this find is briefly discussed.
A new species of Acantholimon Boiss. (Plumbaginaceae) from Ankara, Turkey
Doğan, Musa (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2002-12-01)
Acantholimon anatolicum Dogan & Akaydin sp. nov. (Plumbaginaceae) is described and illustrated. The species grows on deep gypsum-rich sandy soil on eroded mountain slopes between Cayirhan and Nallihan in Ankara. Diagnostic morphological characters that discern it from closely related species are discussed and its conservation status is indicated. A revised key to Acantholimon species with dense terminal spikes and excurrent scapes is given for the species found in Turkey. (C) The Linnean Society of London.
