stramineus population in the upper Parana river observed a polymodal pattern, which may indicate repeated reproductive episodes throughout the year, and therefore the presence of several cohorts in the population.
Inflammation causes sensitisation of polymodal and mechano-nociceptor nerve endings and an abnormal increase in cold thermoreceptor activity, altogether evoking dryness sensations and pain.
Due to their proximity to headwaters of the Andes Mountain Range, rivers on the Southwestern side of the Amazon basin feature a polymodal hydrological cycle, with numerous peaks caused by local precipitation and extremely short flooding periods compared to those from the central and lower Amazon (Rejas, 2004; Maldonado, Goitia, & Rejas, 2005).
