Life-history phenotypes in a live-bearing fish Brachyrhaphis episcopi living under different predator regimes: seasonal effects?
Several key life-history attributes in a tropical live-bearing fish, Brachyrhaphis episcopi, have previously been shown to differ between populations that co-occur with large predatory fish (Characin sites) and those that do not (Rivulus sites). Here we show that differences between Characin and Rivulus localities are also repeatable over time; patterns observed in the wet season also persisted during the dry. Both sexes reached maturity at a smaller size at Characin sites. Although there was...[Show more]
