1.  Species succession and the development of a lacustrine fish community in an ephemeral lake.LinkIT

Journal of fish biologyJ Fish BiolSpecies succession and the development of a lacustrine fish community in an ephemeral lake.855-86910.1111/jfb.14081Here, we present a gillnet survey of Lake Liambezi a 370 km2 shallow ephemeral floodplain lake situated in north-eastern Namibia, which is fed irregularly by the upper Zambezi and Kwando Rivers during years of high flooding. The lake dried up in 1985 and, with the exception of sporadic minor annual inundation events, remained dry until 2007. We describe the temporal succession of fish species over an 8 year period from initial inundation 2007 to maturation in 2014. The succession of the fish community did not follow the typical pattern of opportunistic strategists during colonisation, to periodic strategists that are eventually succeeded by equilibrium strategists. Instead, the evolution of the fish community was characterised by three distinct phases. The first phase involved the inundation and colonisation of the lake in 2007, followed by its decline until the floods that filled the lake in 2009. During this phase the lake was colonised by fishes from the adjacent upper Zambezi and Chobe River floodplains. Fish communities predominantly comprised floodplain specialists including the barbs Enteromius paludinosus and Enteromius poechii, the mormyrid Marcusenius altisambesi and catfishes Schilbe intermedius and Clarias gariepinus. The filling of the lake in the March 2009 floods marked the beginning of the second, successional phase. The barbs declined in abundance and the alestid Rhabdalestes maunensis underwent explosive population growth between 2009 and 2010, but populations crashed equally rapidly and were replaced by Brycinus lateralis which, together with S. intermedius went on to dominate the fish community 2011-2014. Larger, slower growing tilapiine cichlids increased steadily in abundance and became the dominant components in a 2700 t y-1 artisanal fishery that developed on the lake. The fish community in the ephemeral Lake Liambezi is clearly influenced by numerous factors including connectivity, lake level fluctuations, competition and the effects of fishing, which may disrupt typical succession processes in floodplain ecosystems.¬© 2019 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.PeelRichard ARASouth African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB), Grahamstown, South Africa.Department of Ichthyology and Fisheries Science, Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa.NNF/EU Community Conservation Fisheries in KAZA Project, Katima Mulilo, Namibia.HillJaclyn MJMhttps://orcid.org/0000-0003-0703-3772South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB), Grahamstown, South Africa.Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Maurice-Lamontagne Institute, Mont-Joli, Canada.TaylorGeraldine CGCSouth African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB), Grahamstown, South Africa.Department of Ichthyology and Fisheries Science, Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa.TweddleDenisDSouth African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB), Grahamstown, South Africa.NNF/EU Community Conservation Fisheries in KAZA Project, Katima Mulilo, Namibia.WeylOlaf L FOLFhttps://orcid.org/0000-0002-8935-3296Department of Ichthyology and Fisheries Science, Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa.DST/NRF Research Chair in Inland Fisheries and Freshwater Ecology, South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB), Grahamstown, South Africa.engUID 74015National Research FoundationNamibia Nature Foundation (NNF) managed Integrated Community-Based Ecosystem Management (ICEMA) Projectthe Nedbank Namibia Go-Green Fundthe Southern African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adaptive Land Management (SASSCAL)NNF/WWF Zambezi/Chobe Fisheries Projectthe EU/NNF Community Conservation Fisheries in KAZA project110507Department of Science and TechnologyJournal Article20190719EnglandJ Fish Biol02140550022-1112IMAnimalsBiodiversityFishesclassificationphysiologyFloodsLakesNamibiaPopulation DynamicsLake Liambeziartisanal fisheriesfish community compositionfloodplain lakeslife-history strategies201903222019061920196216020201760201962160ppublish3121918110.1111/jfb.14081REFERENCES, 2019</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>2.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Revision of the genus Afrogyrodactylus Paperna, 1968 (Monogenea: Gyrodactylidae) with description of two new species from geographically distant localities.</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>P?ikrylov√° I, Luus-Powell WJ<br><font color=gray><i>Folia parasitologica, 2014</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>3.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Field observations of fish species susceptible to epizootic ulcerative syndrome in the Zambezi River basin in Sesheke District of Zambia.</a><a href=http://ubio.org/tools/linkit.php?map%5B%5D=all&link_type=2&url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0><img src=linkit.png border=0 title='LinkIT' alt='LinkIT'></a> <br><span class=j>Songe MM, Hang'ombe MB, Phiri H, Mwase M, Choongo K, Van der Waal B, Kanchanakhan S, Reantaso MB, Subasinghe RP<br><font color=gray><i>Tropical animal health and production, 2012</i></font><br><font color=#008000>http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0<br></font></span><br>4.  <a href=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=0 class=title>Light and electron microscopical data on the spores of Thelohanellus rhabdalestus n. sp.
