A review paper on the effects of aquatic vegetation on predator-prey interactions

Bu makalede su bitkilerinin balıklar arasındaki interaksiyonlara olan etkileri irdelenmiştir. Microptems salmoides ve Lepomis macrochirus arasındaki av-avcı ilişkisi, su bitkilerinin av-avcı ilişkilerine etkilerini anlamada mükemmel bir örnek teşkil etmektedir. Bu yüzden su bitkilerinin bütün balık türleri arasındaki av-avcı ilişkisine etkilerini değerlendirmek için bu iki tür arasındaki av-avci ilişkisi üzerinde durulmuştur. Bu derlemenin sonucunda.. Microptems salmoides'va Lepomis macrochirus'in üzerindeki av başarısı kompleks habitat, av ve avcı balığın büyüklüğü ile değişim gösterdiği sonucuna varılmıştır. Kompleks habitat Lepomis macrochirus''m dağılımına ve Microptems salmoides'in av başarısına etki etmektedir. Birçok bilim adamı, habitat karmaşıklığının artmasıyla Micropterus salmoides'in av başarısının azaldığı üzerinde hemfikirdirler. Su bitkilerinin, hem avcı temde av balıkların faydalanabileceği şekilde orta yoğunlukta tutulması gerektiği bir sonuç olarak tavsiye edilebilir.

Av-Avcı etkileşimine akvatikvejetasyonunun etkileri üzerine bir derleme

In this paper, the effects of aquatic vegetation on fish species interactions has been reviewed. Predator-prey interaction between largemouth bass (LMB) (Microptems salmoides) and bluegill (BLG) (Lepomis macrochirus) has'been as an excellent example of understanding the effects of aquatic vegetation on the predator-prey interactions. So the focus has been given on the interactions between those species in order to evaluate a general pattern of aquatic vegetation effects on predator-prey interactions of most fish species. Predatory success of largemouth bass on bluegill can vary with complex habitat, predator and prey body size. Complex habitat affects bluegill distribution and largemouth bass predatory success. Bluegill can avoid predation risk by hiding itself in complex habitat. Most of the authors agreed that largemouth bass predatory success declined as habitat complexity increased. Thus it can be concluded that aquatic vegetation should be kept an intermediate density so that both interacting species can benefit.
