A detailed description of the typical habitats of 8 Barbus species of Sri Lanka is given. The distribution of their typical habitats over the various waters leads to the grouping of species in associations. Quantitative analysis of catching data corroborates these groupings. Food competition and competition for spawning grounds is discussed following the species associations. © 1983, BRILL. All rights reserved.
