Biotopes of plecos at Rio Xingu
The Rio Xingu is one of the most important tributaries of the amazon in Brazil. I‘ll present different types of biotopes of the Rio Xingu and their inhabitants. The start is at the mouth of the Rio Xingu near Porto do Moz and ends at São Félix do Xingu. The main aspect will be the big bend – the Volta Grande. But also the Rio Iriri will not be skipped. At the end I‘ll give a foresight of the future of the Rio Xingu. That might be very bad, because of the hydroelectric dam and the exploitation of mineral resources!
