Retrieved from ” https: We examined factors controlling the relative contribution of 12 Neotropical fish species to nutrient recycling in four streams spanning a range of phosphorus P levels. With around described species and new ones being described yearly,  this genus is among the largest of the entire order; Hyphessobrycon also has more than species and which one is larger at any one time depends on whether more species have been recently described in one or the other.

Summary page Point data Common names Photos. LucenaAstyanax pellegrini C. Nitrogen excretion rates showed little variation among species, and the contribution of a given species to ecosystem N recycling was largely dependent upon the total biomass of that species.
ADW doesn’t cover all species in the world, nor does it include all the latest scientific information about organisms we describe. Ichthyological Exploration of Freshwaters. Because of the high variability in P excretion rates among fish species, ecosystem-level P recycling could be particularly sensitive to changes in fish community structure in P-limited systems.
