Abstract

This study examined the efficacy of marking wild populations of lampreys with visible implant elastomer (VIE) for 6-18 months to examine ammocoete movements using Cormack-Jolly-Seber (CJS) open-population models. These methods were tested on two lamprey populations in different river systems. American brook lamprey Lethenteron appendix at Dyke Creek apparent survival (φ) was high in the summer and winter (c. 0·7), but declined after flow events in the spring and autumn. Sea lamprey Petromyzon marinus at Oquaga Creek φ in the top-ranked models varied with stream location and time. Estimates of φ were similar to Dyke Creek during the summer (c. 0·7), but declined after flow events and remained low (c. 0·1) in winter. Open-population models support current understanding of ammocoete movement, i.e. dispersal is driven by high-flow events at certain times of the year. The present study provides a framework to study ammocoetes with VIE.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 November 2017.
All research outputs
#9,371,136
of 12,210,344 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Fish Biology
#1,814
of 2,529 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#188,559
of 285,890 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Fish Biology
#63
of 77 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,210,344 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,529 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.6. This one is in the 17th percentile – i.e., 17% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 285,890 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 77 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 7th percentile – i.e., 7% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
