Mammalians process their photoreceptions through lateral eyes; however, non-mammalian vertebrates and invertebrates possess additional extraretinal photoreceptors over their bodies to detect light stimuli. Chromatophores, ...
Divergent fish mercury trends in two South-Central Ontario lakes and the relationship to changes in atmospheric sulfate deposition
Environmental conditions can lead to mercury accumulations in fish that are highly variability among spatially close lakes in Ontario, Canada. Mercury methylation caused by sulfate reduction can influence total mercury ...
Effects of Environmental Factors, Physical Barriers and Season on the Fish Community Composition of the Lower Ottawa and Mississippi River Systems as Determined from Quantitative Electrofishing
Environmental and physical conditions are considered primary drivers of fish community assemblages. The anthropogenic alteration of aquatic ecosystems is implicated as a primary threat to fisheries worldwide. In riverine ...
