Role of dams in reducing global flood exposure under climate change
While environmental problems caused by dams warrant further investigations, the results indicate that consideration of dams significantly affect the estimation of future population exposure to flood, emphasizing the need to integrate them in model-based impact analysis of climate change.
The Silent Threat of Non-native Fish in the Amazon: ANNF Database and Review
Non-native fish (NNF) can threaten megadiverse aquatic ecosystems throughout the planet, but limited information is available for the Amazon Region. In this study we review NNF data in the Amazonian
A conceptual map of invasion biology: Integrating hypotheses into a consensus network
A consensus network of 39 existing invasion hypotheses is created to create an emergent structure – a conceptual map – that can serve as a navigation tool for scholars, practitioners and students, both inside and outside of the field of invasion biology, and guide the development of a more coherent foundation of theory.
Cichla cataractae (Cichliformes: Cichlidae), new species of peacock bass from the Essequibo Basin, Guyana and Venezuela
Cichla cataractae is endemic to the Essequibo Basin where it typically inhabits rocky shoals in river channels with swift current and is sympatric with the more widely distributed C. ocellaris, a species that prefers lentic habitats.
Diversification of Neotropical Freshwater Fishes
Neotropical freshwater fishes (NFFs) constitute the most diverse continental vertebrate fauna on Earth, with more than 6,200 named species compressed into an aquatic footprint <0.5% of the total re...
Ecological impacts of an invasive top predator fish across South America.
The results suggest that the ecological effects of introduced C. ocellaris on native fish fauna are likely but small compared to large geographical and environmental gradients, and large-scale compilations of available data are more feasible and can provide invaluable information.
