In this paper we evaluated the population dynamics and obtained estimates of the net primary production of the aquatic macrophyte Nymphaea rudgeana in an arm of the Itanhaém River (São Paulo State, Brazil). This species presents, in the studied area, a broad seasonal variation of biomass. As from November (13.1 g DW/m2) we observed a gradual increase of(More)
The relative condition factor (Kn), gonadosomatic index (GSI), selected hematological variables and gill morphology of the fish Astyanax fasciatus were analyzed in two sites (site 1 was unpolluted and site 2 was polluted with untreated domestic sewage) of a tropical river (Camanducaia river, Sao Paulo State, Brazil). The relationship between the body mass(More)
Environmental gradients and competition influence aquatic macrophyte distribution in estuaries. The competition-to-stress hypothesis states that some species are excluded from lower estuaries (high salinity) due to abiotic stress and others from upper estuaries (low salinity) by competition. The growth of Crinum americanum L. and Spartina alterniflora(More)
We compared the values of the biomass, chemical composition and nutritive value of the emergent aquatic macrophyte S. alterniflora in a river affected by the discharge of domestic sewage (Guaú River) and in an unpolluted river (Itanhaém River). S. alterniflora, water and sediment samples were obtained in the two rivers in November, 2001. The Guaú River(More)
The efficiency of a series of wetland colonized with Eichhornia crassipes and Salvinia molesta to treat the effluent of a giant river prawn (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) broodstock pond was evaluated in this study. The experimental design was completely randomized and was performed in 9 rectangular tanks (1.6 m3) with three treatments (constructed wetlands)(More)
