Freshwater; benthopelagic; potamodromous Ref. High vulnerability 62 of Can be diagnosed from most congeners, except Leporinus amblyrhynchusL. Acetylcholinesterase AChE activity was verified in brain and muscle tissues.

Can be further distinguished from Leporinus muyscorum by having six or seven scale rows between lateral line and dorsal-fin origin vs. Levels of ammonia in both tissues increase in fish at all glyphosate concentrations.

Estimates of some properties based on models Phylogenetic diversity index Ref. Lactate and protein of fish exposed to all glyphosate concentrations presented a significant decrease in the liver, but did not change significantly in the muscle. However, it prefers grain and seeds wheat and maizeand it often gathers in large banks near ports, where cargo ships drop grains into the water.

Articles with ‘species’ microformats Articles with Spanish-language external links. In addition, fish exposed to all glyphosate concentrations showed a significant increase in hepatic glycogen and glucose, but a significant reduction in muscle glycogen and glucose.

Main reference Upload your references References Coordinator: Results indicated that AChE activity significantly decreased in the brain of fish exposed to all glyphosate concentrations tested, but in the muscle this parameter was not altered. The common name boga is applied to many other species of fish, usually unrelated to this one.
