Abstract

Genus Squalius, is common in the rivers of the Adriatic basin, it is of great importance for biodiversity conservation. Phylogenetic relationships of the genus are underexploited and so is its evolution in this area. Data on the presence and distribution of genus were collected from 19 locations along the Adriatic Basin. The main objective of this study was to determine the phylogenetic relationships of the genus Squalius, their phylogeography, geographic distribution and the presence of species or subspecies. There was a specific spatial distribution of species, which indicates the great influence of geography, which has historically been variable in the evolution of the species of this genus. The results obtained by phylogenetic analyzes indicate the possibility of a double colonization of Adriatic Basin with species of genus Squalius. We found the presence of a new phylogenetic line which could represent a separate taxonomic unit.
