The effects of various levels of dissolved oxygen on fish reproduction
Adequate levels of dissolved oxygen (DO) are essential to the health of most aquatic organisms. While diel fluctuations in DO concentration are a normal occurrence in aquatic ecosystems, anthropogenically-produced periods ...
Exploring causative and modifying factors of metal mine effluent toxicity using short-term multi-trophic artificial stream systems
Metal mines release treated effluents that contain a variety of metals, metalloids, and organics into the aquatic environment. A number of metal mine effluents (MMEs) have been found to contribute to adverse effects in ...
THE EFFECTS OF BOLDNESS ON THREAT-SENSITIVE DECISIONS IN FISHES
Personality describes the consistent, individual differences in the behaviour we observe among human and non-human models alike. One of the components of human and animal personality which has sparked interest, is the ...
The effects of salinization on freshwater fishes of the Northern Great Plains
Salinization poses a threat to many inland aquatic ecosystems. Therefore, it is important to understand the potential implications of salinization on aquatic systems. Saline water bodies are prevalent in the Northern Great ...
Chemosensory assessment of predation risk by fishes : ecological and social factors affecting learning and use of heterospecific alarm cues
Throughout their lives, prey organisms must balance the tradeoff between fitness-related activities and the risk of predation. To successfully mediate such tradeoffs, prey must have an accurate method to gauge current ...
The effects of pathogens on club cell investment in fathead minnows, Pimephales promelas
Fish skin is a metabolically active tissue that responds quickly to stressors and is the first line of defence against physical damage. Club cells, characteristic components of Ostariophysian fish skin, release their ...
