The loss or addition of functional unique species directly affects ecosystem processes Scherer-Lorenzen, , thus, these three species are key to maintain some aspects of the ecosystem functioning. Not all species were functionally grouped with taxonomical related species. For example, A. The classification of species in functional groups transcends taxonomic boundaries, but they are not independent of phylogeny in the sense that frequently species in the same family or genus tend to share common traits Bellwood et al.

Our results showed this dependency between phylogeny and functional attributes within Poeciliidae omnivore-herbivore and middle-high water column level and Cichlidae omnivore-carnivore and middle-low water column level families. A remarkable exception is B. Similarly, O. These results support the advantages of clustering species independently for locomotion and food acquisition to achieve a higher detail in niche partitioning.

The concept of functional redundancy implies that some species may play similar roles in ecosystems Rosenfeld, However, the functional niche of a given species not only depends on ecological processes related to morphology or physiology but also is modified by demographic attributes and responses to environmental factors Rosenfeld, ; Violle et al. Additionally, different species may have the same characteristics in some functional aspect, but they can differ in others; therefore, redundancy is reduced among species when considering various functions simultaneously Gamfeldt et al.

In this sense, to be more redundant, two species should belong to the same functional group and have the same range of tolerance to the environment Rosenfeld, Under this assumption, it is always possible to separate two species choosing an appropriate niche axis Morin, However, a relevant task for future research consists in identifying the most relevant functional traits linked to ecosystem functioning. Ours results suggest that environmental conditions during the dry season in permanent pools may act as environmental filters for the fish community, as they had a strong effect on FG-richness, FG-diversity and FG-evenness.

Environmental filters restrict both the occurrence and abundance of species Hooper et al. Therefore, when environmental filters are strong drivers of community structure, the most abundant species have similar niches, allowing them to tolerate harsh conditions Zobel, ; Mason et al. As we hypothesized, functional group structure was modified in permeant pools during the dry season, when low dissolved oxygen concentration may act as an environmental filter.

In contrast, during the wet season, substantial expansion of habitat occurred and all pools were completely connected for at least two months August and September. During this season, our results show a stable functional group structure between habitats, a higher FG-richness and FG-diversity, and niche partitioning among the structure of functional groups. These results support the idea that floods reduce spatial variability among local communities Thomaz et al.

Functional niche partitioning may result in a compatible use of resources Tilman, ; Mason et al. Further research is needed to test these particular hypotheses related to assembly rules in different habitats and seasons. Functional groups based on species similarities in food acquisition and locomotion allowed us to understand niche partitioning within a community.

This was useful to determine functional redundancy, which was not strictly dependent on taxonomical identities. In this tropical wetland, the hydrological dynamic changes functional groups structure, particularly in permanent pools during the dry season, where environmental filtering may play an essential role shaping community assembly.
