Integration of DNA barcoding for the initial recordings of Lessepsian fishes: a case study of the Indo-Pacific slender ponyfish Equulites elongatus

Karahan, Arzu
Ok, Meltem
In this study, the DNA barcode of a regional Lessepsian sighting of the slender ponyfish Equulites elongatus is integrated with morphometric and meristic descriptors as a case study to address further identification problems in the Mediterranean Sea. The study also aims to contribute to the regional mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase I information pool, to support other potential uses. The initial sighting of E. elongatus from the north-eastern Mediterranean coast of Turkey is provided from a trawl survey on 3 June 2015, where 76 specimens were captured during a 15 min tow.

Revision of Vicia L. (Leguminosae) in the Central Anatolia, Turkey
Binzat, Okan Kaan; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2012)
In this revisional study based on the the genus Vicia in Central Anatolia large quantities of data have been compilled from specimens representing the group of the taxa being studied. These data were then synthesized to make taxon descriptions, keys, geographical distributions and ecological preferences. Since 2009, about 700 specimens have been collected from Central Anatolia and examined as the research materials. In addition, a large number of specimens have also been studied in the following herbaria AN...
Implementation of Antarctic Krill into the Ocean-Ecosystem Model FESOM-REcoM-2 and its Effects on Southern Ocean Biogeochemistry.
Karakus, Onur; Hauck, Judith; Völker, Christoph; Fach Salihoğlu, Bettina Andrea; Hagen, Wilhelm (2020-01-16)
In this study, a three-dimensional, coupled ocean ecosystem model (FESOM- REcoM2) is used to investigate the effect of krill on the biogeochemistry of the Southern Ocean. The implementation of Antarctic krill in the model was done in three steps. 1) A second zooplankton group was implemented, which grazes on diatoms, mesozooplankton and nanophytoplankton (in order of descending preference). 2) A new detritus group was added to the model, which represents faster-sinking krill faecal pellets. 3) The grazing i...
Evaluation of Site Characterizations and Site Effects of the Ankara Basin Turkey
Koçkar, Mustafa Kerem; Akgün, Haluk (2007-06-28)
The purpose of this study is to assess the in-situ site characteristics and to perform seismic hazard studies of the Upper Pliocene to Pleistocene fluvial and Quaternary alluvial and terrace deposits located towards the west of Ankara. Based on a general engineering geological, geotechnical and seismic characterization of the site, site classification systems were assigned for seismic hazard evaluations. Then, short-period noise recordings of the microtremor measurements at the ground surface have been used...

Three areas of different ecosystem characteristics in the Northern Levantine Basin is compared using a 1-D multicomponent lower trophic level ecosystem model developed by SALIHOĞLU, B. et al. (2009) (NAGEM). Main focus was to analyze and compare the carrying capacity (PP) and regulatory mechanisms of the nutrients on lower trophic levels. 26 years’ of historical data obtained from METU-IMS data inventory and CORIOLIS was used to form a climatology, to introduce boundary conditions to the model as well as to...
Biochemical and genetic characterization of halobacterium salinarium strain isolated from Tuz Lake in central Anatolia
Çakıcı, Özgür; Yücel, Ayşe Meral; Department of Biochemistry (2004)
In this study, a halophilic archaea Halobacterium salinarium TG13 which is isolated from Tuz Lake in Central Anatolia was characterized biochemically and genetically. Halobacterium salinarium DSM3754 and Halobacterium salinarium S9 strains were used as a reference strain through the experiments. In biochemical characterization; total protein profiles of strains was compared by using 1D SDS PAGE. Total protein profile of the isolated strain has shown differences. The SDS-PAGE profile of the purified purple m...
