    In ecology, a food chain is a series of organisms that eat one another so that energy and nutrients flow from one to the next. For instance, there are hydrogen sulfide-oxidizing chemoautotrophic bacteria found in undersea vent communities where no light can reach. The feces and uneaten, dead organisms become food for decomposers, who metabolize them and convert their energy to heat through cellular respiration. Experimental tests of optimal habitat use in fish: the role of relative habitat profitability.

    Food webs Food chains give us a clear-cut picture of who eats whom. Breeding Biology Spawning habits are not known well in Canada, and few studies have been published. Males are known to eat their young if one contracts some kind of virus or fungus. One study found that bottom dwelling aquatic insects make up So, none of the energy actually disappears—it all winds up as heat in the end.

    Some examples are squirrels, mice, seed-eating birds, and beetles. Spawning begins when water temperatures are at 5oC in lakes and 10oC in streams. Coastrange sculpin populations in upstream areas were maintained by immigration from downstream areas in contrast with prickly sculpin populations that produced young-of-year fish throughout their range.

Animals, fungi, and many bacteria are heterotrophs. Great Lakes Res. This group consists of decomposers, organisms that break down dead organic material and wastes. This was odd since the two species Ecology of slimy sculpin book coexist in similar habitats.

The males do this because females will eat the eggs right after spawning if the male does not run her off. The mean current velocity in which the fish is found is 0. However, sculpins predation on stoneflies has reduced stonefly predation on trout eggs and their young.

On the other hand, males are commonly found in algae beds. Distribution, size, growth, age, condition and relative abundance of sculpin were examined.

The species co-occurred at 26 sites. Principles of fishery science, 2nd edn. Annual production by the slimy sculpin population in a small Minnesota trout stream.

Academic Press New York. Environmental Biology of Fishes. Slimy sculpin may also prey on the eggs and larvae of deepwater sculpin. In the past, the range of sculpins within the Eel River drainage probably fluctuated with changing physical conditions.

The species inhabited very similar habitats and had very similar diets.Mar 27,  · Prickly sculpin (Cottus asper) demonstrates the classic sculpin shape: big head, wide fins, tapering body.
