Abstract

Abstract:

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the isotopic signature of P. brasiliana captured in three different points along the river flow toward the sea of the Prumirim River, northern coast of the state of São Paulo/Brazil in order to test the hypothesis of similarity between isotopic signature of individuals living in separated areas of the river.

Methods: We used stable isotope analyses (δ13C and δ15N) at three points of the river and ANOVA and Bayesian Ellipses analyses were performed.

Results: Our results showed that are a differential isotopic enrichment along the river course in 13C, providing important results on the environmental condition and anthropogenic impacts in the region. In addition, the food biology of P. brasiliana was characterized as a primary consumer corroborating with the detritivores feeding habit observed in previous studies of stomach content analysis.

Conclusions: Our research, limited to a single area along the northern coast of the state of São Paulo, uncovers intriguing findings that merit replication in other areas within the region. This is particularly crucial given the rising number of anthropogenic influences resulting from urban development, underscoring the need for improved monitoring of these areas.

Resumo

Resumo:

Objetivo: O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar a assinatura isotópica de P. brasiliana capturada em três diferentes pontos ao longo do fluxo fluvial em direção ao mar do rio Prumirim com a finalidade de testar a hipótese de similaridade entre a assinatura isotópica de indivíduos que vivem em areas diferentes do rio.

Métodos: Foram utilizadas análises de isótopos estáveis (δ13C e δ15N) em três pontos do rio e foram realizadas análises de Stable Isotope Mixing Models e Bayesian Ellipses.

Resultados: Nossos resultados mostraram que há um enriquecimento isotópico diferencial ao longo do curso do rio em 13C, fornecendo resultados importantes sobre as condições ambientais e os impactos antropogênicos na região. Além disso, a biologia alimentar de P. brasiliana foi caracterizada como um consumidor primário, corroborando com o hábito alimentar de detritívoros observado em estudos anteriores de análise de conteúdo estomacal.

Conclusões: Nossa pesquisa, limitada a uma única área ao longo da costa norte do estado de São Paulo, revela descobertas intrigantes que merecem ser replicadas em outras áreas dentro da região. Isso é especialmente crucial dada a crescente quantidade de influências antropogênicas resultantes do desenvolvimento urbano, ressaltando a necessidade de um monitoramento aprimorado dessas áreas.
