Studies on gastrointestinal helminth of three Lacertid Lizard species, Podarcis muralis, Podarcis siculus and Ophisops elegans (Sauria: Lacertidae) from Bursa, North-Western Turkey

) reported 6 species of helminths, Paradistomum mutabile, Oochoristica gallica, Skrjabinadon medinae, Spauligodon cabrerae, Acuaria sp. (larvae) and Spirurida gen sp. In two reports related to Ophisops elegans , Goldberg and Bursey (2010) examined Iranian species and came across Oochoristica tuberculata and Nelli et al. (2014) encountered Mesocestoides lineatus in Armenian species. Nothing has been published on helminths of P. muralis, P. siculus and O. elegans from Bursa province, North-western Turkey.

Autumn Migration Dynamics, Body Mass, Fat Load and Stopover Behaviour of the Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus) at Manyas KuşcennetI National Park (NW Turkey)

Autumn Migration Dynamics, Body Mass, Fat Load and Stopover Behaviour of the Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus) at Manyas KuşcennetI National Park (NW Turkey)

Turkey is located on one of the major migratory routes between Palearctic and Afrotropical regions. Despite its importance for many species, few studies exist on bird migration over Turkey. In this study, autumn migration dynamics and stopover behaviour of the Willow Warbler, a passage migrant in Turkey, was documented and analysed at Manyas Kuşcenneti National Park (NW Turkey). Birds were mist-netted, ringed, measured, weighed and fat scored from mid-August in 2002 and end of August in 2003 to end of October in both years. Totally, 543 and 929 Willow Warblers were ringed in 2002 and 2003, respectively. For 2002 and 2003 respectively, fat score values (mean ± SE) were 4.63 ± 0.06 and 3.84 ± 0.05, while body mass reached 11.38 ± 0.07 and 10.37 ± 0.05 g for birds captured for the first time. Fat scores in 2003 showed a bimodal distribution with peaks of T2 and T5, indicating populations or groups with different migratory strategies. The number of retraps constituted 9.2-12.1% of birds captured. In both years, minimum stopover length ranged from 1 to 15 or 16 days with a median of 5 days (averages 5.26 and 5.54, respectively). The majority of the retraps put on significant fat in both years. Retraps continued to put on weight for up to two weeks after they had arrived. In this second study documenting the Willow Warbler migration in Turkey, it was revealed that such wetlands as Manyas Kuşcenneti National Park provide crucial stopover habitat for possibly several populations of the species enabling them to gain necessary fat loads before crossing two major ecological barriers, the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara.

On new taxa of Otiorhynchus Germar, 1822 (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Entiminae: Otiorhynchini) from Greece and Turkey

Abstract

The subgenera Eunihoides subgen. n. (type species O. echinopterus sp. n.), and Nubidanops subgen. n. (type species Otiorhynchus tumidicollis Stierlin, 1861) in the genus Otiorhynchus Germar, 1822 are newly described. The following species of Otiorhynchus Germar, 1822 are described: echinopterus sp. n., rhizophilus sp. n. and agilis sp. n. from south-western Turkey (subgenus Eunihoides subgen. n.); brevipilosus sp. n. from Turkey (subgenus Pocodalemes); nigrosetosus sp. n., flavosetosus sp. n., lacunosus sp. n., adopertus sp. n., implicatus sp. n. and sculptipterus sp. n. from Turkey (subgenus Tecutinus Reitter, 1912); forficulatus sp. n. and amplicornis sp. n. from south-western Turkey; crocotillus sp. n. from Greece (subgenus Fondajenus Reitter, 1912); crassiphallicus sp. n. from northern Turkey (subgenus Otismotilus Reitter, 1912); agmentosus sp. n., armentalis sp. n., cappadocicus sp. n., crepuscularis sp. n., hebetes sp. n., malinkai sp. n., porculus sp. n., vavrai sp. n. and wanati sp. n. (all from Turkey, subgenus Odelengus); spectativus sp. n. from Turkey (subgenus Aequipennis); anabolicus sp. n. and pulcher Białooki & Fremuth sp. n. from Turkey (subgenus Pterygodontus); rhinorostris sp. n. and curiosus sp. n. from Greece (subgenus Podonebistus); microcornis sp. n. from Turkey (subgenus Arnoldinus Davidian, Gültekin & Korotyaev, 2017). Otiorhynchus (Eunihus) pisidicus (Magnano, 2003) is hereby transferred to Otiorhynchus (Eunihoides subgen. n.), Otiorhynchus tumidicollis Stierlin, 1861 from Otiorhynchus incertae sedis and Otiorhynchus (Nubidanus) torosicus Davidian & Gültekin, 2016 to the subgenus O. (Nubidanops subgen. n.); all are new subgeneric placements.

Evaluation of Malathion and Malaoxon Contamination in Buffalo and Cow Milk from Afyonkarahisar Region, Turkey, Using Liquid Chromatography/Tandem Mass Spectrometry – a Short Report

Abstract

Organophosphate (OP) pesticides via consumption of milk and milk products induce hazardous effects on human health. Considering their risk to human health, the determination of organophosphate pesticide levels in dairy products is very important. Until now, there has been limited data available on the occurrence of organophosphate pesticides in dairy products in Turkey. The aim of the present study was to investigate the presence of malathion and malaoxon residues in commonly consumed buffalo and cow milk products in the city of Afyonkarahisar, Western Turkey. For this purpose, 75 buffalo and 75 cow milk samples were collected from the city. Malathion and malaoxon levels were determined by means of liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry. In the study, neither malathion nor malaoxan was detected in buffalo and cow milk samples. In conclusion, survey studies were performed continuously for organophosphate pesticide contamination in consumed milk samples and products in Turkey.

Anatoliacodium gen. nov. (Halimedaceae, Green algae) from the Ilerdian-Cuisian in the Eskişehir region (Western Central Turkey)

Anatoliacodium gen. nov. (Halimedaceae, Green algae) from the Ilerdian-Cuisian in the Eskişehir region (Western Central Turkey)

A new genus Anatoliacodium (Halimedaceae, Green algae) is described from the Ilerdian-Cuisian shallow-water sediments of Eskişehir region, central-western Turkey. These sequences consist of limestones, clayey limestones, sandy limestones and claystones. Anatoliacodium gen. nov. is characterized by erected calcareous segments with well differentiated inner structure: prevailing with large medulla of more or less densely set parallel filaments and cortical zone of prevailing horizontal to subhorizontal cortical filaments, once branching and without constriction. It is supposed that poorly and rarely preserved noncalcareous structures on the skeleton surface could be reproductive structures. The type species of the new genus is Anatoliacodium xinanmui gen. nov. sp. nov. A further new species is also described: Anatoliacodium merici gen. nov. sp. nov. Finally Gymnocodium nummuliticum Pfender, 1966 is emended and transferred to the genus Anatoliacodium.
