Sample text

French samples corresponded mostly to A. franciscana populations, verified through specimens obtained under culture or through those provided as preserved samples. In Aigues Mortes, low proportions of the autochthonous parthenogenetic population were recorded. Cyst samples available from Italy and the information obtained from them are shown in Table 3. Some of these samples, collected before 1987, did not hatch. , the bisexual A. salina and both parthenogenetic strains, diploid and tetraploid. According to data reported previously by Hontoria (1990), the cysts from the Comacchio salterns correspond to a parthenogenetic tetraploid strain because of their big size, while the Sicilian sample from Isola Longa (Trapani) resembles the size of cysts obtained for A.

Densiflora to keep high net photosynthesis and growth rates in fresh and brackish water environments. At the highest salinity (40 ppt), a high stress level was recorded in S. densiflora, reflected in significant decreases in growth, net photosynthesis rate and photochemical efficiency of PS II. This decrease in A was high (around 50% 33 Figure 3. Potential photochemical efficiency of PSII (Fv/Fp), half-time for transition from F0 to Fp (T1/2), initial fluorescence (F0), peak fluorescence (Fp) and variable fluorescence (Fv) in relation to salinity in S.

Italian samples studied from eight localities do not show the presence of A. franciscana. In these Italian salterns, only the autochthonous strains were found. This supports the results of Nascetti et al.
