Stratégies démographiques des poissons des rivières françaises : premiers résultats

Abstract : The analysis of the biological, morphological and food characteristics of 35 French species leads to distinguish two main strategies. The first one gathers 11 species with a short life span and which maximize the survival of juveniles. Within it, cold water species with a long reproduction lifetime and thermophilous species with a relatively stronger fertility can be distinguished. Their diets are essentially made of insects- plankton and insects-fishes. In the second group, no care is given to juveniles; relative fertilities are higher and inversely correlated to the number of reproduction cycles. 10 species are omnivorous with a grass-wastes tendancy, and 4 species eat strictly fishes. The canonical analysis of correspondances shows that these biological characteristics are sufficuent to understand most of the longitudinal zonation.
