Catfishes (Siluriformes: Pimelodidae) in the Amazon River Basin serve important ecological and economic roles in structuring foodwebs, transferring nutrients and providing food resources for human populations. Large-scale developments such as construction of the Interoceanic Highway and associated proposed hydroelectric facilities could lead to alterations in river hydrology and aquatic ecosystems within Amazon headwater regions. We assessed temporal and spatial distribution patterns of catfish… CONTINUE READING
