Conservation Strategies for Endemic Fish Species Threatened by the Three Gorges Dam
Abstract:  The largest damming project to date, the Three Gorges Dam has been built along the Yangtze River (China), the most species‐rich river in the Palearctic region. Among 162 species of fish
Ontogenetic Behavior and Migration of Chinese Sturgeon, Acipenser sinensis
Sturgeon species with large migratory embryos, like Chinese sturgeon, which require a high level of energy to swim during migration, may migrate only a short time to conserve most yolk energy for growth.
Community structure of small fishes in a shallow macrophytic lake (Niushan Lake) along the middle reach of the Yangtze River, China
This study describes the current status of the small fish community in Niushan Lake in China, and examines the spatial and seasonal variations of the community in relation to key environmental
The uplift of Qinghai-Xizang (Tibet) Plateau and the vicariance speciation of glyptosternoid fishes (Siluriformes: Sisoridae)
The speciation of this group has a direct relationship with the three uplift intervals of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, and the water system of this region was separated gradually and Glyptosternum-like ancestor was isolated in different rivers and evolved into various species.
Extinction risk and conservation priority analyses for 64 endemic fishes in the Upper Yangtze River, China
It is a global concern to assess extinction risk and set conservation priority for threatened species. In the present study, we assessed extinction risks and conservation priorities for 64 endemic
Seasonal Variation in Drifting Eggs and Larvae in the Upper Yangtze, China
The large total amount of eggs and larvae drifting through this section demonstrated that the upper reaches of the Yangtze River provided important spawning sites for many fish species, and that conservation of this area should be of great concern.
Length-Weight Relationships for Thirty Fish Species in Lake Niushan, a Shallow Macrophytic Yangtze Lake in China
In the eight examined species,sexual dimorphism did not affect the length-weight relationships, except in the cases of Siniperca chuatsi and Cultrichthys erythropterus.
Onychostoma virgulatum, a new species of cyprinid fish (Pisces: Teleostei) from southern Anhui Province, South China
Onychostoma virgulatum, new species, is described from the Qiupu River, a tributary on the Southern bank of the lower Yangtze River at Shitai County, southern Anhui Province, South China. It shares
Structure of endemic fish assemblages in the upper Yangtze River Basin
This study focused on characterizing the endemic fish assemblages in the upper Yangtze River Basin and identifying the relative influences of catchment land‐cover variables on observed fish patterns
Reproductive characteristics of Ancherythroculter nigrocauda, an endemic fish in the upper Yangtze River, China
In conclusion, A. nigrocauda mature early, spawn once, and are highly fecund, all of which are consistent with an r-selected life history, and it is recommended that a moratorium on fishing this species be enacted and the culture of this species is continued.
