An ear for records : can otoliths unveil the early life history mysteries of freshwater fishes?
Biological and environmental processes that influence the survival and fitness of individuals during their early life history phases can have implications for population structure and function. Historically, tracking early life history phase fishes has been problematic, due to their small size and fragility. Fortuitously, the earstones (otoliths) of bony fishes possess a suite of structural and chemical properties that can be analysed or exploited as a vector for chemical marking, to provide...[Show more]
