Bolivian Amazon lowland fish metacommunity data

Latest version published by BioFresh on Mar 13, 2015 BioFresh

This dataset represents data from the paper Yukoni, T. and Torres L. V. (2015) The role of water chemistry, connectivity and piscivory for ecological and evolutionary process structuring a fish metacommunity in the Bolivian Amazonian lowland. This study documents the spatial dynamic of fish metacommunity based on the date sets of 65 sites, covering two geographic patches of transparent water valleys; Manuripi and Itenez Rivers, separated by turbid water valleys originate in the Andes and the savanna

Fish

Sampling Methods

specification of method(s) used for sampling and sorting: At each site, gill nets were deployed for 2 h each in the evening (17:30-19:30) and the morning (5:30-7:30). Gill nets (25 m long by 2.5 m high) extended from the lakeshore or were placed in calm areas of the river channel. Fish were sampled using 13 nets of varying mesh sizes: 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 110 mm. CPUE was calculated for each species and site as the total number of individuals captured in all gill nets during 4 h (2 h each in morning and evening).

Study Extent sample specification: quantitative (abundance data) replicate samples: no

Method step description:

  1. commonly used series of methods steps regarding fish (e.g. sampling, identification, data management)
