Field verification of chondroitin sulfate as a putative component of chemical alarm cue in wild populations of fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas)


Chemical characterization of damage-released alarm cues in ostariophysan fishes has lagged far behind the study of the ecological role that these cues play in behavioral decision-making of prey fishes. Chondroitin sulfate has been identified as a putative component of alarm cue based on two laboratory studies of zebrafish, Danio rerio, and the northern… (More)
