Abstract

Basic natural history information is often lacking for rare aquatic species. This study aims to address the lack of life history knowledge for the Gravel Chub (Erimystax x-punctatus). Fecundity of Gravel Chub was assessed by performing egg counts on vouchered museum specimens. Our results indicate a strong relationship between fecundity and body size as well as temperature.
