short description of the dataset/summary:
This dataset represents metadata from the paper Yunoki, 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 dynamics of fish metacommunity based on the dataset of 65 sites in two geographic patches of transparent black and clear waters of the Amazonian Manuripi and Itenez Rivers, which are separated by river valleys with turbid waters originating in the Andes and the savanna.

comments:
Lake connectivity was estimated using satellite imagery (Google Earth) and topography and was expressed by an ordinal variable transformed to ranks, where 1: connected; 2: near river channel; 3: away from the river channel, and 4: isolated.
physico-chemistry data:
pH, conductivity, Secci disc depth
comments:
Transparency was log2-transformed.

Biological data

organism group addressed:
fish
comments:
This study was developed as a collaboration between Beni University (Universidad Autónoma del Beni 'José Ballivián'), Pand University (Universidad Amazónica de Pando), OGN HERENCIA, and OGN Hombre Naturaleza. The Nacional Park (Servicio Nacional de Areas Protegidas, SERNAP) provided assistance with fieldwork in the Manuripi (Reserva Nacional de Vida Silvestre Amazónica Manuripi) and the Isiboro Sécure (Parque Nacional Territorio Indígena Isiboro Sécure). The Bolivian Army assisted with fieldwork in the Tahuamanu, Manuripi, and Madre de Dios Rivers.

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 to a calm area in 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). The unit for the fish biomass is grams.
