Trans Am Fish Soc Two new species of Leporinus Agassiz Characiformes: Homogenization of freshwater faunas. The direct costs of fecundity would over the long term reduce the availability of stored energy used for reproduction, while the indirect costs would reduce growth rate, indirectly influencing future reproduction Schwarzkopf, One way to reduce biotic homogenization is to minimize habitat alteration, maintaining the periodicity of the reservoir water retention time, allowing a water flow level to be re-established in the river system.

The fish fauna in the fish passage at the Ourinhos Dam, Paranapanema River.

Collections were made monthly from November through Octoberand trimonthly from March through December The females grow slightly faster than the males; however this difference is clearly perceptible only after lepodinus years of age. Males are sexually mature at 1 yr, while females are mature at 2 years.

Leporinus – Wikipedia

Previous studies have identified a significant reduction in potential intermediate host communities zooplankton and benthic communitiesand thereafter a proportional decrease in fish density and diversity in the Jurumirim Reservoir Henry et al.


Knowledge of reproductive strategies is fundamental to implementation of management measures and preservation of the populations of native fishes, as well as contributing to knowledge of the species’ ecology. Anadromous sea lampreys recolonize a marine coastal river tributary friderixi dam removal.

Size-associated sexual dimorphism was observed, that is females dominated the longer length categories, and males the shorter. A comparison of three tributaries of the Jurumirim Reservoir in southeastern Brazil. The parasite community of the host population from PR had the highest mean diversity index Shannon-Wiener and Simpson’s index and, consequently, high distribution frideerici of parasite abundance Pielou index Table II.

Specimens were sexed and the state of gonadal maturation was estimated by macroscopic inspection of the gonads Vazzoler, In Itaipu, stabilization between the maximum and minimum lengths at first maturation was also noted after year 6 following closure and continuing until year Island Press, p.

In sum, it can be admitted that reproductive strategies are more ecological adaptations than genetic phenomena.

Fish parasites can have a positive role and are involved in most of the links of the food web and the flow of energy in aquatic ecosystems. Nevertheless, the changes in populations subjected to the unpredictable conditions of the first years of reservoir formation have rarely been documented.

The EstimateS program was used to estimate parasite species richness for each host population see Colwell and Coddington Strategies and Tactics, Academic Press, London, p.

Itaipu Reservoir was closed in October and lepoeinus attained an area of 1, Km 2 at its maximum level, with mean depth Collaborators Pictures Stamps, Coins Misc.

Threespot Leporinus

Redescription of Leporinus jamesi Characiformes: Parasite infracommunities of Leporinus friderici: Ecosystems and Human Well-being: Neotropical Ichthyology, 11 1: Unfortunately, freshwater ecosystems are undergoing abrupt ecological changes caused by increasing dam construction.

However, this fact is inconclusive since the abiotic and biotic conditions responsible for the recruitment process were not investigated, and could as well result from a cyclic environmental process.

Anthropogenic effects of reservoir construction on the parasite fauna of aquatic wildlife. River Res Appl The minimum size at which L. Eight parasite species were shared among the tributaries Table I.

Comparison of the parasitized and non-parasitized hosts among the tributaries was performed using the G test 2×3 contingency table Zar Most hosts were parasitized by one species Figure 2. Os peixes da represa de Jurumirim: In this process, the balance between the advantages and disadvantages in the fiderici of energy for reproductive strategy and its variations tactics is the factor determining the characteristics of the life history of an organism, such as age or leporunus at sexual maturation, survival rate, fecundity, and reproductive frequency.
