Associated characteristics

Species Development state Trait Primary Data Secondary Data
Leuciscus leuciscus Larvae Temperature during larval development Between 20 and 25 April 1977 and 1978 the fry (<48 h old) were stocked into cages [Heavy mortalities in starved fry kept at 10°C ( a typical mean river water temperature in late April and May) 20.0 °C
Leuciscus leuciscus Larvae Full yolk-sac resorption [The exhaustion of endogeneous supplies; heavy mortalities in starved fry kept at 10°C only began after three weeks] 10.0 °C * day
Leuciscus leuciscus Larvae Onset of exogeneous feeding About 4-6 days at 10°C 5.0 °C * day
