- ... AIM: Migrants of the Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrinchus, from North America are thought to have founded the Baltic sturgeon population during the Little Ice Age around 1200 years ago, replacing the European sturgeon, Acipenser sturio. To test this hypothesis and to further elucidate the colonization of the Baltic Sea by A. oxyrinchus, we carried out DNA analyses of ancient and contemporary po ...

- ... AIM: The European sturgeon, Acipenser sturio, was classified as “Critically Endangered” in 1996. Its last natural population is currently living in the Gironde Estuary (French Atlantic coastal region) but has a low level of genetic diversity and is on the brink of extinction. In order to reconstitute the genetic structure, migrations and hybridization of the species across Europe, present‐day and ...
