Comparison of Upper Thermal Tolerances of Native and Nonnative Fish Species in Arizona

  title={Comparison of Upper Thermal Tolerances of Native and Nonnative Fish Species in Arizona},
  author={CORISSA J. CARVETH and A. Widmer and Scott A. Bonar},
—We used a lethal thermal method to estimate the upper thermal tolerances of 11 native and 7 nonnative fish species found throughout southern Arizona. Fish were acclimated to 258C and 308C. For all species tested, an increase in acclimation temperature resulted in a higher thermal tolerance value. Among the species acclimated to 258C, desert pupfish Cyprinodon macularius, western mosquitofish Gambusia affinis, and Gila topminnow Poeciliopsis occidentalis were most tolerant to high temperature… CONTINUE READING
