Comparative ecology of notropis albeolus notropis ardens and notropis cerasinus cyprinidae in the upper roanoke river drainage virginia usa



Comparative ecology of notropis albeolus notropis ardens and notropis cerasinus cyprinidae in the upper roanoke river drainage virginia usa



American Midland Naturalist 107(1): 13-24



Foods, feeding periodicity and microhabitat use are reported for coexisting N. albeolus, N. ardens and N. cerasinus in the upper Roanoke River drainage, Virginia. All 3 spp. primarily occupied pool habitats, ate aquatic insect larvae or terrestrial adult insects, and were diurnal feeders. N. ardens (subgenus Lythrurus) was ecologically segregated from N. albeolus and N. cerasinus (both subgenus Luxilus) in vertical spacing in the water column and in taxa of foods used. The 2 Luxilus spp. were ecologically more similar, segregated only by vertical differences in microhabitat. Overlaps in resource use among the 3 spp. pairs suggested congruence of phylogenetic and ecological similarities.
