Project: Variation in cranial morphology in the European eel (Anguilla anguilla), in relation to its trophic ecology and pollution
01-JAN-07 – 31-OCT-11
The European eel (Anguilla, anguilla) shows a natural but distinct variation in head shape (broad and narrow headed specimens). However, the nature of this shape difference (dimophism or not), r het underlying morphology and relation to differences in diet are unknown. This project will focus on these aspects in Flemish eels, as well as possible relationships with the occurrence of polluents will be examined.
