Island Press, p. Greater diversity is apparent in the range of oral morphology, however, and members exhibit a wide range of adaptations in dentition and jaw structure. Biotic as well as abiotic factors are uncouplers of the reproductive process in the environments considered.

This analysis was performed using Statistica software version 7. In both cases Lpm was greater during the first years after flooding, and then decreased. Adults occur in ponds Ref. Anostomidae from the Brazilian Amazon, and redescription of Leporins striatus Kner The relationships between breeding sites and seasons and the condition factor were evaluated by ANOVA.

Leporinus – Wikipedia

Blackwell Science, p. For this purpose, more reservoirs have been built in recent years, raising concern over biological conservation. Leporinus friderici was not recorded in Itaipu before the reservoir was closed. However, the dominance of young fish was observed during the entire period of the study including the river phase, and was not shown to be an effect of reservoir formation.

These events may dramatically alter the way the ecosystem behaves and are mirrored by changes in the diversity of wildlife communities and their parasite populations.

In response to environmental stressors, fish parasite communities can increase or decrease prevalence, abundance and diversity Lafferty and Kuris In spite of the fact that the present fish community there is dominated by species of lentic environments, lotic species such as the dourado, piapara, and piau are still caught by the commercial fishery of Itumbiara Godinho, In the present study we recognized that the Jurumirim Reservoir performs as a mediator, facilitating the spread of leporlnus host populations and disease.


The small pairwise regional differences in species composition spatial turnover may represent a homogenization of parasite faunas among tributaries under the influence of the Jurumirim dam. Dams usually affect the ecological and evolutionary processes of resident biota by modifying and replacing the function and diversity leporinnus river habitats Poff et al.

The continuity of stimuli for initiation and intensity of spawning are, therefore, a consequence of the annual variability of stored and environmental resources available to the individuals. Influence of an impoundment on benthic macroinvertebrate habitat utilization.

In the United States, more than obsolete dams have been removed and rivers reconnected over the last 40 years O’Connor et al.

Most hosts were parasitized by one species Figure 2. How environmental stress affects the impact of parasites. No common pattern was observed in the predominance of one sex between the le;orinus of either reservoir.

Itaipu Reservoir was closed in October and eventually attained an area of 1, Km 2 at its maximum level, with mean depth Although adult individuals were abundant in Itaipu, the largest catches of young fish were recorded in year oeporinus, 7, and 15 following reservoir formation Figs.

Urbanization as a major cause of biotic homogenization.

These strategies undergo temporal and spatial changes, and are conditioned by resource availability and environmental pressure. Anostomidaea poorly known species of Leporinus from the lowlands of the central Amazon, Brazil. Rev Bras Parasitol Vet Estimators of species richness provided roughly similar results with frideridi observed values exhibiting a satisfactory level of sampling effort Figure 4.

Very active during leporinux rainy season, they gain the flooded zones where they are captured with nets. Multivariate analysis of ecological data.


In the studied area, the effects of the Jurumirim Dam have been well documented for phytoplankton Henry et al. All these are key factors which maintain parasite dynamics.

Rfiderici there are no studies on the relationship of fecundity and leporinis length in L. Data analysis The sex ratio per standard length class, environment, and season was established. Frirerici both environments, the reproductive investment of the females was much higher than that of the males Figs.

Based on an assumption that the TR host population see Figure 1 is further away from the other rivers, a Mantel test with randomization runs was performed using PC-ORD 5.

This datum was calculated for each year of the study. The females grow slightly faster than the males; however this difference is clearly perceptible only after 4 years of age. These results should aid river managers and stakeholders in mitigating the negative effects of dams on the biotic homogenization process.

The requirements for spawning necessarily limit the spawning grounds of fish Santos et al.

It is admitted that, of the reproductive tactics fiderici for L. The present study did not find any significant differences in parasite communities among populations of L.

Ital J Zool Dam interventions leads to the decline of many species that are replaced by a much smaller number of expanding species that thrive in environments altered by humans Olden and RooneyRahel The collection, preservation and preparation of the parasites were conducted based on the methodology compiled by Eiras et al. The food is crushed by four strong keporinus on each half-jaw.
