Life History and Behavior
Glossary for Neogobius melanostomus
- Animal habitation
- The dwelling of an animal or group of similar animals.
- Back-arc basin
- A depression in the sea floor that results from the collision of continental plates; the weight of the sinking plate causes the overlying plate to stretch and thin, causing a basin in the overlying plate. Sometimes, the Earth's crust in these basins stretches so much it cracks, allowing magma through from the mantle beneath. Hence, basins often contain active volcanoes and hydrothermal vents.
- An area of water bordered by land on three sides.
- Brackish water
- A deep fissure in snow or ice.
- A plane angle unit which is equal to 1/360 of a full rotation or 1.7453310^[-2] rad.
- Drainage basin
- A regions or area bounded by drainage divides and occupied by a drainage system; specifically the tract of country that gathers water originating as precipitation and contributes it to a particular stream channel or system of channels, or to a lake, reservoir, or other body of water.
- A semi-enclosed coastal body of water with one or more rivers or streams flowing into it, and with a free connection to the open sea.
- Fresh water
- Freshwater habitat
- A habitat that is in or on a body of water containing low concentrations of dissolved salts and other total dissolved solids (<0.5 grams dissolved salts per litre).
- Geographic distribution
- A description of the geographic distribution, or range, of the taxon. Includes descriptions of global, regional, or political aspects of range and whether the taxon is native or introduced in portions of the range and endemicity.
- Gravel is an environmental material which is composed of pieces of rock that are at least two millimeters (2mm) in its largest dimension and no more than 75 millimeters.

- Total life span
- The full period of time from birth to death of an organism.
- A stream or river which flows into another river (a parent river) or body of water but which may not flow directly into the sea.
