Observations on the toleration of high temperatures and low dissolved oxygen in natural waters by Crenichthys baileyi



Observations on the toleration of high temperatures and low dissolved oxygen in natural waters by Crenichthys baileyi



Southwestern Natur 9(4): 245-248



The fishes Crenichthys baileyi or C. nevadae are found abundant in warn springs in eastern Nevada. None of the springs cooler than 20[degree]C had either species, and all 21[long dash]37t within the appropriate drainages had one. Most of the spring-boils had low quantities of dissolved oxygen, never exceeding 4 ppm. Individuals of C. baileyi were observed to remain without show of distress in a 31.3[degree]C spring with 1.6 ppm. oxygen. Individuals of C. nevadae seemed equally able to tolerate 0.9 ppm oxygen at 37.3[degree]C and 0.5 ppm at 32.3[degree]C. The resistance to the combined stresses may enhance the survival of both threatened species as well as Moapa coriacea.
