Toelichting (Engels) In The Netherlands, the mudminnow Umbra pygmaea mainly occurs in water bodies with a pH ranging from 3–5 to 4–0, an alkalinity less than 0.1 meq 1−1 and a calcium content below 100 μmol 1−1. The abundance of mudminnows is inversely related to the pH and the presence of predatory fish species. Experimental studies show that If. pygmaea is extremely acid-tolerant. Exposure to media with pH values ranging from 4.0 to 7.0 did not cause mortality or significant changes in blood plasma osmolarity and haematocrit. At pH 3.0 no mortality was recorded although a strong decrease in the plasma osmolarity was observed. Exposure to pH 2.8 and calcium concentrations of 100 or 500 μ mol 1−1 for 10 days caused 70% and 40% mortality respectively. The growth, reproduction and feeding of mudminnows are described. Age-growth and length-age relationships were calculated. Gonadal development started between September and January. The highest Gonado Somatic Index was recorded in spring. Spawning occurred from April to May. Fecundity of a sample of females was assessed. Nematocera provided the main item of diet of U. pygmaea; the microfauna ingested was dominated by Cladocera. The adaptations of mudminnows to acid environments are discussed.

To support researchers to publish their research Open Access, deals have been negotiated with various publishers. Depending on the deal, a discount is provided for the author on the Article Processing Charges that need to be paid by the author to publish an article Open Access. A discount of 100% means that (after approval) the author does not have to pay Article Processing Charges.

For the approval of an Open Access deal for an article, the corresponding author of this article must be affiliated with Wageningen University & Research.
