Dynamics of the shallow‐water fish assemblage of the Patos Lagoon estuary (Brazil) during cold and warm ENSO episodes
The ENSO phenomenon influences precipitation and estuarine salinity in southern Brazil and thereby seems to have a strong influence on recruitment, immigration, and emigration dynamics of fish species living within and adjacent to estuarist habitats.
Checklist comparison and dominance patterns of the fish fauna at Taim Wetland, South Brazil
An up-to-date species list of fishes occurring in the Taim Wetland and the first preliminary description of fish dominance patterns found in the main lakes of the system are made, Apparently, the black catfish T. lucenai invaded the system in the last decade and became one of the dominant species in the pelagic waters.
Spatiotemporal Variation in Shallow-Water Freshwater Fish Distribution and Abundance in a Large Subtropical Coastal Lagoon
Patos Lagoon is located off the southern Brazilian coast and represents one of the largest coastal lagoons in the world. We estimated hydrological and physicochemical conditions associated with
Aquatic food webs in mangrove and seagrass habitats of Centla Wetland, a Biosphere Reserve in Southeastern Mexico
Carbon and nitrogen isotope ratios of basal sources and aquatic consumers indicated that the species-rich food webs of both habitats are dependent on riparian production sources, and the role played by terrestrial insects in linking riparian and aquatic food webs is examined.
Invariant scaling relationship between functional dissimilarity and co-occurrence in fish assemblages of the Patos Lagoon estuary (Brazil): environmental filtering consistently overshadows
The results support the assumption that environmental filters have more influence than biotic interactions on the structure of fish assemblages even locally, and suggest that co-occurrence increases with functional redundancy regardless of spatial scale.
A review of the biology, ecology, behavior and conservation status of the dusky grouper, Epinephelus marginatus (Lowe 1834)
The dusky grouper is a large-bodied marine species usually associated with rocky substrates and reefs currently experiencing increasing anthropogenic pressures. Here, we critically evaluate studies
Evidences of El Niño effects on the mullet fishery of the Patos Lagoon estuary
Episodios El Nino ocorrem na regiao tropical do Oceano Pacifico e estao associados com o aumento da descarga continental de agua na Lagoa dos Patos (10.360 km2) e sua regiao estuarina (971 km2). A
Factoring scales of spatial and temporal variation in fish abundance in a subtropical estuary
The findings corroborate the hypothesis that prevalent annual patterns of variation in the abundance of marine estuarine-dependent fishes are associated with predictable productiv- ity pulses linked to the annual temperature regime, whereas inter-annual variations in fish abun- dance areassociated with the influence of large-scale climatic phenomena.
