Estimation of congeneric scale reliability using covariance structure analysis with nonlinear constraints.
Cywinska et al (12), demonstrated a higher degree (20 times) of COI sequence divergence among the congeneric species than for members of species by amplifying a short fragment of COI gene region of 37 species of Canadian mosquitoes.
Congeneric models were used to calculate the factor score weights and to estimate composite scores for each of the composite indicators (Joreskog and Sorbom 1990).
Once it was clear that the best solution in factor analysis was a one-factor congeneric model, the aim of construct validity was to create, test, and refine a one-factor global or unidimensional measure of the qualities of nurses (Tables 3 and 4).
microti-like infection has been observed in other common eastern US mammal species, such as shorttailed shrews (Blarina brevicauda) (25), eastern cottontail rabbits (Sylvilagus floridanus) (17), eastern chipmunks (Tamias striatus) (17), raccoons (Procyon lotor) (26) and foxes (27), and congeneric species in other regions or countries, including Sciurus spp.
This congeneric measurement model supports the discriminant validity because it does not contain any cross loadings either among the measured variables or among the error terms.
Bowden was apparently unaware that the specimen he studied was congeneric with Namibimydas, which might be because this species, in contrast to all other known Namibimydas species, has a short proboscis and Hesse (1972) in describing the genus highlighted the fact that the proboscis is long.

In the tidal freshwater region up-estuary of the salt front, there was substantial diet overlap between congeneric striped bass (Morone saxatilis) and white perch (M.
Only two congeneric species share the combination of a dark forewing with a dentate submarginal pattern, lots of creamy white pattern elements of the forewing, and relatively homogeneous hindwing colouration.
Are low rates of pollination in orchids due to the fact that so many orchid species have specialized pollination systems in which the flowers can be pollinated only by relatively few, congeneric animal species (see Pemberton, this volume)?
Among the topics are genetic variation within a subdivided population, the genetic management of hatchery stocks, genetic divergence between congeneric Atlantic and Pacific Ocean fishes, variability of mitochondrial DNA within and between salmonid species, and the genetic conservation of exploited fishes.
