Who Is Who: An Anomalous Predator-Prey Role Exchange between Cyprinids and Perch

Piscivory in cyprinids (Cyprinidae) is extremely rare. Specifically, common bream (Abramis brama) and common carp (Cyprinus carpio) are...

Deficiency and toxicity of nanomolar copper in low irradiance-A physiological and metalloproteomic study in the aquatic plant Ceratophyllum demersum

Essential trace elements (Cu2+, Zn2+, etc) lead to toxic effects above a certain threshold, which is a major environmental problem in many areas of...

Pelagic occurrence and diet of invasive round goby Neogobius melanostomus (Actinopterygii, Gobiidae) juveniles in deep well-mixed European reservoirs

Round goby is generally accepted to be a typical benthic dwelling fish species both in its native and invasive ranges. Nevertheless, mid-water night...
