Geographical distances and the similarity among parasite communities of conspecific host population. This characteristic has also been noted for several other teleost species Narahara et al. The reproductive success of a species is a limiting condition for its maintenance and exploitation in the new environment.

Threespot Leporinus

Influence of an impoundment on benthic macroinvertebrate habitat utilization. Nevertheless, the same pattern could not be demonstrated in Itaipu, that is the variations in the physical condition of the species could not be attributed to changes in the breeding season, but coincided only with the spawning sites, possibly reflecting the availability of food in the environment. Redescription of Leporinus altipinnisa senior synonym of L.

Parasites have undergone serious changes in composition and structure due to human activity that influences the functioning and stability of the ecosystem LaffertyLafferty and Kuris Dams usually affect the ecological and evolutionary processes of resident biota by modifying and replacing the function and diversity of river habitats Poff et al.


Quantitative differences in parasite infracommunities can indicate different host populations. Homogenization of regional river dynamics by dams and global biodiversity implications.

Leporinus friderici – Threespot Leporinus (Salmo friderici) — Seriously Fish

Eight taxa were shared among the host populations, six Monogenea Dactylogyridae gen. Two new species of Leporinus Agassiz, Characiformes: Biogeographic barriers, connectivity and homogenization of freshwater faunas: Distribution and abundance of stream fishes in relation to barriers: Thus, parasites can have a colonizing ability independent of the vagility of the fish host, a fact that increases fridetici among communities.

August 29, ; Accepted: Statistica data analysis software systemversion 7. Breeding sites were identified as those with the largest concentration of individuals with mature and emptied gonads and the highest mean GSR values. The population of L.

Human uses

To describe the component community, the total number of species of parasite, the total number of individual parasites, the Shannon-Wiener index H’which gives equal weight to rare and abundant species, the Simpson index 1-D which is sensitive to changes in the most abundant species composition, the Pielou evenness index Jand the Berger-Parker index BPwhich evaluates uniformity among the component community were employed Magurran Hydropower and the future of Amazonian biodiversity.

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. Rio Grande do Norte. Dams and the fish fauna of the Neotropical Region: Dorsal soft rays total: According to Frideriica high proportion of young individuals provides evidence that a population is growing rapidly.


More than just controlling river flow, damning a river simplifies the freshwater ecosystems and leads to conditions which change the parasite dynamic. These effects can diminish human wellbeing by decreasing the services that ecosystems can provide for people Millennium Ecosystem Assessment friderico A new species of Leporinus Agassiz, Characiformes: Vari, – Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society 1: How environmental stress affects the impact of parasites.

Dams modify the water level regime and current velocity, which affects the distribution of aquatic vegetation, icthyophagous birds, and the population density of invertebrates and fish Morley But how do dams affect the parasitic fauna of such fish?

In dry season, they are confined to the deepest parts of the river where they are captured with fishing rods. In addition, these impacts on landscape structure change the natural disturbance regime of the river and, are usually described as one of the major reasons for freshwater biotic homogenization Mckinney Young specimens were considered as those with immature gonads, and adults those with gonads in later stages of maturation.
