  • Little is known about the freshwater fishes of western Ecuador despite serious environmental threats, including the creation of large artificial impoundments. Phenotypic and genetic divergence of populations of a large predatory fish, Hoplias microlepis, is examined in rivers and artificial impoundments of the Guayas River drainage in western Ecuador. Despite the recent formation of the impoundments (∼20 years prior to the sampling), H. microlepis in these habitats diverged morphologically from… CONTINUE READING
