    Knowledge of the early life stages of fishes is crucial for the effective monitoring and management of fish populations and habitats, and the evaluation of environmental impacts and recovery of endangered species. Unfortunately, the proper identification of targeted species has stunted the development of the field. Now a series has emerged that stands as the leading resource on the. contains the species of the genus Percina. Some of the largest darters (including the logperch) are in this group. Several are colorful, others not, and species in this group occur from sand darter habitat to fast-running riffles, depending on the species. The third group is the largest and.

    Percina brucethompsoni is included in the darter subgenus Swainia. Unlike the other darters discussed, the Ouachita darter is a robust, medium-sized species (less than 10 cm) of Percina and has a long head and snout. If measured, the snout length goes into the head length times or less while the head length will go into the standard length. The genus Percina includes darters with modified midventral scales. Both Ammocrypta and Crystallaria were reassigned subgeneric ranking in the genus Ammocrypta based on their elongated shape, single anal spine, translucent flesh, and their peculiar behavior of burying themselves in the sand. All remaining darters were placed in the genus.

    Studies of most darters indicate, however, that many of these species are darter, Percina sciera (Page and Smith, ); slenderhead darter, P. phoxo- An ecological study of four darters of the genus Percina (Percidae) in the Kaskaskia River, Illinois.

Percina is the second largest genus (40 spe-cies) of darters. Phenetic analyses of external morphological characters have been used to classify species of Percina into nine subgenera (Page, ).

Despite many shared ecological and morphological features, darter life histories vary among species and covary with phylogeny (Bart and Page ). Members of the an­ cestral genera Crystallaria (monotypic) and Percina (c.

38 species) tend to be larger, more fecund, and have smaller eggs than genus Etheostoma (c. species). Within. In this study, we describe the morphological diversity of darter fishes with a focus on characters of the skull that have been linked to feeding ecology in other perciform species, particularly prey type and capture method.

In addition, we identify several instances of morphological and apparent ecological convergence among darter species. Thomas, D.L. An ecological study of four darter species of genus Percina (Percidae) in the Kaskaskia River, Illinois.
