Title: Similarities In Feeding Behaviour Between Some Marine And Freshwater Fishes In Two Tropical Communities.
Author: Sazima I.
Abstract: Feeding behaviour and diets of fishes in a marine reef and a freshwater pond were studied in Brazil. Similarities were found in tactics employed to obtain food, social patterns during foraging, and general diet, notwithstanding lower-level taxonomic differences between food items. Feeding behaviours of c1/3 of the fish fauna from each community were approximately equivalent. Similarities in feeding modes probably reflect structural and functional properties shared by the 2 communities. Additional behavioural similarities of fishes in both habitats are presented and the lack of some particular foraging modes in each community is noted. Different, unrelated fish assemblages have the ability to evolve towards a similar behavioural and structural organization in response to comparable situations and constraints. -from Author
