The functional morphology of Ictalurus nebulosus, the northern Brown Bullhead.
Nida, Laurel K.
AbstractThe Brown Bullhead is a catfish who can live in a variety of habitats because of their functional morphological characteristics. They are omnivorous feeders who coexist with other organisms due primarily to their nocturnal activity. Their complex sensory structures make them well suited for life in dark murky habitats. They are generalist swimmers able to manipulate through a variety of areas throughout their microhabitat. Therefore, I conclude that there is definitely a relationship between where animals choose to live and the environments conditions contained in a habitat.
