This study was carried out in order to determine abundance and distribution of macrogelatinous organisms (Aurelia aurita, Pleurobranchia pileus, Mnemiopsis leidyi ve Beroe ovata) with respect to fish egg and larvae in Sinop region in 2002. Three stations were selected this region and plankton tows were made both verticallly and horizontally. In study the ctenophores M. leidyi between January and September, and B. ovata between August and December period were appeared. The cnidarian Aurelia aurita and the ctenophore Pleurobranchia pileus showed a wider distribution in 2002. A total of 857 eggs and 150 larvae were collected from ichthyoplankton samples and 8 species belonging to 8 families were identified. Most of ichthyoplankton included Sprattus sprattus phalericus 77.7%, Engraulis encrasicolus ponticus10% and Mullus barbatus 10% of total eggs, S. s. phalericus 51%, Blennidae family 15% and E. e. ponticus 13% of total larvae. The abundance and species number of ichthyoplankton were lower in the present study than found in 1999-2000. Overall in the warm period, the abundance of both macrogelatinous organisms and fish egg and larvae were found to increases. No correlations were found between macrogelatinous organisms and fish egg and larvae in this relatively short sampling (during a year) period (p>0.05).


Genetic structure of modern and ancient swordfish populations from coasts of Turkey
Yüncü, Eren; Togan, İnci Zehra; Department of Biology (2017)
In this study, partial mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and 8 microsatellite loci of swordfish collected from Northern Levantine Sea and Northern Aegean Sea were analyzed. Also same mtDNA region of ancient swordfish samples unearthed from Yenikapı excavation were sequenced. Obtained sequences were evaluated comparatively with the sequences from Balearic Sea, Ligurian Sea, Ionian Sea and Southern Aegean Sea, available in databases. Analysis of the molecular variance revealed a significant differentiation between We...
Seasonal distribution of fish eggs and larvae off sinop (the southern Black Sea) in 1999-2000

The seasonal distribution of fish eggs and larvae off Sinop, the central southern Black Sea, was studied by using vertical and horizontal tows at two stations at biweekly intervals between January 1999 and November 2000. Besides basic oceanographic parameters, macro gelatinous was also sampled to evaluate their relation to fish eggs and larvae. Eggs or larvae of a total 23 fish species were present in the samples. Most of the species were found to occur during spring and summer. It is observed that especial...
Diversity of halophilic archaea from six hypersaline environments in Turkey
Ozcan, Birgul; Özcengiz, Gülay; Coleri, Arzu; Cokmus, Cumhur (2007-06-01)
The diversity of archaeal strains from six hypersaline environments in Turkey was analyzed by comparing their phenotypic characteristics and 16S rDNA sequences. Thirty-three isolates were characterized in terms of their phenotypic properties including morphological and biochemical characteristics, susceptibility to different antibiotics, and total lipid and plasmid contents, and finally compared by 16S rDNA gene sequences. The results showed that all isolates belong to the family Halobacteriaceae. Phylogene...

The phylogenetic relationships of Drosanthe section of Hypericum genus (Hypericaceae) were analyzed by using non-coding chloroplast DNA region (trnL 3'-trnF) for 58 individuals. The section is represented by 23 taxa and nine of which are endemic to Turkey. The chloroplast phylogeny suggested that the members of this section belonged to a polyphyletic group, which imply at least two independent origins. The individuals of this section clearly formed two main clades. One clade included all members of this sec...
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...
