    The chemical detection of predation risk is direct when based on predator odors, or indirect when an injured conspecific or heterospecific signal it. Physiological adjustments may be necessary in parallel to defensive ...
  • Effects of area and available energy on fish assemblages of tropical streams

    Bastos Gonçalves, Bruno Autor UNESP; Tejerina-Garro, Francisco Leonardo; Assis De Carvalho, Rodrigo (Marine and Freshwater Research, 2017) [Artigo]
    A central issue in fish community ecology is to understand how the size of the drainage area and the available energy influence fish species diversity and their spatial distribution. In the present study, we tested whether ...
