Stream Fish Ecology: A Landscape PerspectiveLand use, which influences the terrestrial-aquatic interface, can affect fish populations and their community dynamics
TLDR
The basic life cycle of stream fish and the natural and anthropogenic changes in structural and functional relationships of landscape elements over time are reviewed. Expand
FISH COMMUNITY STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION ALONG TWO HABITAT GRADIENTS IN A HEADWATER STREAM
TLDR
The stream continuum concept suggests that the physical structure of the stream chan- nel coupled with the hydrological cycle and energy inputs results in a consistent pattern of community structure and function along a stream, and that resource limitation may have occurred during summer periods. Expand
Critical landscape attributes that influence fish population dynamics in headwater streams
Three landscape attributes are likely to have strong effects on the rate-dependent processes determining fish population dynamics in headwater streams: (1) functional interactions atExpand
The Role of Predation in Age‐ and Size‐Related Habitat Use by Stream Fishes
TLDR
The results suggest that the high density and extensive overlap in habitat use of small fishes in shallow habitats of small warm water streams is related to the increased risk of predation by centrarchids in pools. Expand
Environmental variation, life history attributes, and community structure in stream fishes: Implications for environmental management and assessment
Fishes in midwestern streams of the United States experience strong upstream—downstream gradients in natural environmental variability. Upstream fishes experience greater temporal variability inExpand
Effects of multi‐year droughts on fish assemblages of seasonally drying Mediterranean streams
TLDR
Results supported the view that present-day droughts cause relatively small and transient changes to Mediterranean stream fish assemblages, however, longer and more severe droughting expected under altered future climates, may result in declines or local extinctions of the most sensitive species and their potential replacement by more resistant species. Expand
DISPERSAL, BOUNDARY PROCESSES, AND TROPHIC-LEVEL INTERACTIONS IN STREAMS ADJACENT TO BEAVER PONDS'
TLDR
Beaver ponds act as reproductive "sources" for fish on the landscape, while adjacent stream environments act as potential reproductive "Sinks," and large-scale spatial relationships between beaver ponds and streams, along with the influence of discharge on the permeability of the boundaries between these habitats, are critical in controlling fish dispersal. Expand
Species-Area Relationship for Stream Fishes
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that species-area relationships may often be epiphenomena stemming from the more com- prehensive community "samples" intercepted by larger habitat patches, and suggest that in streams subject to strong seasonal and annual environmental variation, habitat features are poorer predictors of fish distribution and abundance than in channels subject to less environmental variability. Expand
Flow regime, juvenile abundance, and the assemblage structure of stream fishes
TLDR
Models of fish assemblages in small streams need to incorporate ontogenetic changes in the role of stochastic environmental variables in regulating the population size of component species. Expand
NICHE RELATIONSHIPS OF CLONAL AND SEXUAL FISH IN A HETEROGENEOUS LANDSCAPE
TLDR
Analysis of spatial, physiological, and morphological niche relationships in a Phoxinus eos–neogaeus gynogenetic complex of cyprinid fish in five drainages influenced by beaver activity along the 294-km2 Kabetogama Peninsula in Voyageurs National Park of northern Minnesota indicated strong variation among drainages, especially in pond environments, but a consistent pattern of increased gynogens frequency in collapsed ponds or streams.
