Ecomorphology of a size-structured tropical freshwater fish community

  title={Ecomorphology of a size-structured tropical freshwater fish community},
  author={Gerbrand J. Piet},
  journal={Environmental Biology of Fishes},
Among nine species of a tropical community ecomorphological correlates were sought throughout ontogeny. Ontogenetic changes were distinguished by establishing six pre-defined size-classes. Morphometric data associated with feeding were compared by canonical correspondence analysis to dietary data. This analysis revealed seven significant relationships, showing 71% of the morphological variance explained 77% of the variance in diet. Based on funtional ecomorphological relationships established… CONTINUE READING
