In this study we have used morphological characters related to feeding and prey capture and dietary data to investigate the trophic organization within two assemblages of marine demersal fishes. Morphological and dietary disparities within fish assemblages were estimated from species similarities based on Euclidean distances plus species projections on the principal axes from multivariate analyses. The analyses of the morphological variables indicated that species in each assemblage comprised… CONTINUE READING
