Food resource utilization partitioning of fifteen fish species at Bukit Merah Reservoir, Malaysia

  title={Food resource utilization partitioning of fifteen fish species at Bukit Merah Reservoir, Malaysia},
  author={Yap Siaw-Yang},
Statistical and mathematical models have been used to measure the subtle differences in food resources utilisation of fifteen (15) fish species at Bukit Merah Reservoir, Malaysia. The models employed are niche breadth, dietary overlap indices and discriminant analysis. A diet measure based on the relative importance index of food items was used for the analysis, to correct for biases of the single indices consisting of the volumetric, numerical and occurrence frequency. Niche breadth (Bi… CONTINUE READING
