Core conservation species? Re: A. schwoiseri
Hey, Gary and all!
Well, it's not a core species as far as I know, which I should being the
genus coordinator and all. However, I just took over the position, and
didn't get any responses from the previous genus coordinator, so I really
don't actually know what's a core species, except for the groups I'm
directly involved in. If anyone at all knows of anyone keeping this species
or any other that is or was a core conservation species, could you *please*
let me know! I'm sort of the babe lost in the woods at the moment with only
two core conservation groups going (oeseri and walkeri kutunze) and others
being considered (older filamentosum populations, fallax). I think there's
a deltaense group going (is this really a single species? It seems more
variable than anything else by a wide margin, judging by the variety of
photos and sizes of fish called "deltaense" I've seen).
Other than that I'm waiting for the results of the email survey and the
Easter count to come through from Tom before even thinking about other
species to add (Tom provided me with the heads up on the filamentosum and
fallax). Any other suggestions would be most gratefully accepted!
Thanks a million!
