Subadult from the rio Xingu. The degradation and homogenization of natural habitats is considered a major cause of biotic homogenization.

While the Jurumirim Dam area of influence has monthly variations in rainfall and water levels, the hydroelectric power station is responsible for major spatial and temporal unpredictability Garcia-Mellado et al.

Neotropical region; Leporinus friderici; metazoan parasites; similarity; watershed conservation. The relationship between breeding sites and season and the well-being of the species, interpreted as the values of the condition friderii Kwas different in the two reservoirs Figs. Thus, parasites can have a colonizing ability independent of the vagility of the fish host, a fact that increases similarity among communities.

On defining and quantifying lepkrinus homogenization. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Influence of an impoundment on benthic macroinvertebrate habitat utilization. In addition, these impacts on landscape structure change the natural disturbance regime of the river lepoeinus, are usually described as one of the major reasons for freshwater biotic homogenization Mckinney Data analysis The sex ratio per standard length class, environment, and season was established.


Threespot Leporinus

However, the leporrinus study did not find any distinct differences in parasite communities among populations of L. This site relies heavily on the help of hundreds of people without whose valuable contributions it simply wouldn’t exist. Short description Morphology Morphometrics Dorsal soft rays total: Artificial environmental conditions caused by reservoir construction have led to habitat changes, with consequences for the composition and structure of fish populations Agostinho et al.

The formation of Itaipu Reservoir had a greater effect on the reproduction of L.

Decreases in mean length at first maturation of L. Following this reasoning, what would happen to fish parasite assemblages after dam removal?

Our Knowledge Base is an ever-evolving work in progress, which naturally means that some species profiles contain more information than others.

Homogenization of regional river dynamics by dams and global biodiversity implications. Many dams around the world have attenuated the seasonal and interannual streamflow variability of rivers, thereby causing biotic homogenization.

The worldwide demand for water and power generation has dramatically increased the risks for freshwater ecosystems. Eight leporinuss species were shared among the tributaries Table I. Freshwater; benthopelagic; potamodromous Ref. Similarity within component communities of host populations exhibited qualitative and quantitative homogeneity Table III.

This condition fridericl been commonly observed for other fish species Santos et al. The residence time of the water is 40 days Benedito-Cecilio, Size-associated sexual dimorphism was observed in L.

Annu Rev Ecol Evol Syst Nevertheless, the same pattern could not be demonstrated in Itaipu, that is the fridfrici in the physical condition of the species could not be attributed to changes in the breeding season, but coincided only with the spawning sites, possibly reflecting the availability of food in the environment. Males are sexually mature at 1 yr, while females are mature at 2 years.


Arrhinolemur scalabrinii Ameghino,of the late Miocene – a taxonomic journey from the Mammalia to the Anostomidae Ostariophysi: Dams modify the water level regime and current velocity, which affects the distribution of aquatic vegetation, icthyophagous birds, and the population density of invertebrates and fish Morley EdsMigratory fishes of South America: All the contents of this journal, except where otherwise noted, is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution License.

Although adult individuals were abundant in Itaipu, the largest catches of young fish were recorded in year 3, 7, and 15 following reservoir formation Figs. Leporibus estudo de caso: Parasitism by Sphincterodiplostomum musculosum Digenea, Diplostomidae metacercariae in the eyes of Steindachnerina insculpta Characiformes, Curimatidae.

In both environments, the reproductive investment of the females was much higher than that of the males Figs.

Dorsal soft rays total: It is admitted that, of the reproductive tactics analyzed for L. Fishing gear consisted of stationary nets with mesh sizes 3 to 14 cm, and trammel nets with mesh 6 to 9 cm between nonadjacent knots, set out for 24 hours at each sampling station. It is admitted that more or less preferential catch of specimens lepoinus one sex would reflect different growth rates Munro,which may also be a consideration in the case of L.
