The relationship between mudskipper abundace and physico-chemical parametrs of Muthupet mangrove forest was studied during April 2012- March 2013. In the present study, impact of different enviornmental parameters on mudskipper population was investigated. The mudskippers population varied from place to place depending upon the enviornmental parameters. The parametrs such as clay, DO, TOC, pH, and soil moisture was found to have significant relationship with the mudskipper distribution. The estuarine and mangrove area was found more diverse then the riverine and marine areas. The genus periophthalmus was found dominant over other genus.Pages: 268-272 | 891 Views 3 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
