In this sense, food conversion efficiency has been shown to increase during recovery periods following starvation in the European minnow, Phoxinus phoxinus (Russell and Wootton 1992), Arctic charr (Miglavs and Jobling 1989a), and Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua (Jobling et al.
Schooling has also been shown to be at least partially genetically determined by comparing the schooling behavior of predator-naive, laboratory-reared fish from natural populations where predation is high with the behavior of laboratoryreared fish from populations where predation is low (Seghers, 1974, for guppies, Poecilia reticulata; Magurran, 1990a, for minnows, Phoxinus phoxinus).
We included former scientific names for recently renamed species (e.g., Phoxinus and Chrosomus oreas, and Luxilus and Notropis albeolus).
Their efficiency may be related to the relatively low cost of synthesis (e.g., metabolic byproducts as disturbance cues; Vavrek et al., 2008), or their efficacy in small quantities (e.g., alarm cues released from 2 [cm.sup.2] of skin from Pimephales promelas and Phoxinus eos create an active space with a radius of between 2 and 8 m; Wisenden, 2008).
The enclosures with fish (F and FN treatments) were stocked with a hybrid redbelly dace (Phoxinus eos x P.
Schlosser, personal observation and unpublished data) included the brook stickleback (Culaea inconstans), brassy minnow (Hybognathus hankinsoni), northern redbelly dace (Phoxinus eos), finescale dace (Phoxinus neogaeus), fathead minnow, creek chub (Semotilus atromaculatus), blackchin shiner (Notropis heterodon), and pump-kinseed sunfish.
Although the three fish species in this study occur in other areas in Oklahoma and the United States (Miller and Robison, 2004), the Arbuckle-Simpson springs provide specialized habitat for two cyprinids, Phoxinus erthyrogaster (southern redbelly dace) and Nocomis asper (redspot chub) and a percid, Etheostoma microperca (least darter).
The Tennessee dace, Phoxinus tennesseensis, is a small minnow (Cyprinidae) with a limited distribution in eastern Tennessee and extreme southwestern Virginia (Etneir and Starnes, 1993; Jenkins and Burkhead, 1994).
Two species and the one hybrid collected by Johnson but not found currently were common shiner (Luxilus cornutus), tadpole madtom (Noturus gyrinus) and northern redbelly dace X finescale dace (Phoxinus eos X neogaeus).
Numerous individuals of Campostoma anomalum (central stoneroller), Luxilus cerasinus (crescent shiner) and Phoxinus oreas (mountain redbelly dace) also schooled over the nest.
