The hypothesis was that all of these factors would relate to individual swimming performance--specifically that larger, male, streamlined specimens from lotic habitats would exhibit comparatively higher swimming performance than smaller, female, robust specimens from lentic habitats.
Furthermore, studies at a wide geographical scale in the Northern hemisphere demonstrate a positive correlation between the surface area of lentic bodies and species richness, and a negative correlation between the surface area of lentic bodies and depth (Stomp, Huisman, Mittelbach, Litchman, & Klausmeier, 2011).
