Experience from case studies of biologicalinvasions in aquatic ecosystems has motivated aset of proposed empirical “rules” forunderstanding patterns of invasion and impactson native species. Further evidence is neededto better understand these patterns, andperhaps contribute to a useful predictivetheory of invasions. We reviewed the case ofbrook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis)invasions in the western United States andtheir impacts on native cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarki). Unlike many… Expand

Analysis of trade-offs between threats of invasion by nonnative brook trout ( Salvelinus fontinalis ) and intentional isolation for native westslope cutthroat trout ( Oncorhynchus clarkii lewisi )
TLDR
A Bayesian belief network was developed as a tool for analyzing the environmental factors influencing both species, their potential interactions, and the effects of isolation on the persis- tence of local cutthroat trout populations and showed the process could help clarify management objectives and options and prioritize conservation actions among streams.

POPULATION ECOLOGY OF AN INVASION: EFFECTS OF BROOK TROUT ON NATIVE CUTTHROAT TROUT
TLDR
A four-year removal experiment to test for population-level mechanisms promoting invasion success of brook trout and causing decline of native Colorado River cutthroat trout. Expand
Invasion by nonnative brook trout in Panther Creek, Idaho: Roles of local habitat quality, biotic resistance, and connectivity to source habitats
Abstract Theoretical models and empirical evidence suggest that the invasion of nonnative species in freshwaters is facilitated through the interaction of three factors: habitat quality, bioticExpand
Ecology and impacts of nonnative salmonids with special reference to brook trout ( Salvelinus fontinalis Mitchill) in North Europe
TLDR
Examining the invasion dynamics and impacts of the North American brook trout in North European stream systems found the European brown trout appeared as the 'worst' alien species (strongest impact on native fish), followed by the NorthAmerican rainbow trout and brook Trout. Expand
Implications of Beaver Castor canadensis and Trout Introductions on Native Fish in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve, Chile
TLDR
The impact of introduced beaver Castor canadensis, brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis, and rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss on native stream fishes in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve, Chile found puye was the only native species that was common and widespread. Expand
Effects of Elevation and Genetic Introgression on Growth of Colorado River Cutthroat Trout
TLDR
Elevation, sex, and genetic introgression all had significant effects on growth rates of cutthroat trout in this high-elevation system, and native trout grew slowly and matured relatively late. Expand
Experimental Effects of Nonnative Brown Trout on the Individual- and Population-Level Performance of Native Bonneville Cutthroat Trout
TLDR
Evaluation of the effects of nonnative brown trout Salmo trutta on the individual- and population-level performance of native cutthroat trout using a field-experimental approach shows clear trends in growth, condition, stable-isotope-based measures of dietary habits, and mortality. Expand
When Eradication is not an Option: Modeling Strategies for Electrofishing Suppression of Nonnative Brook Trout to Foster Persistence of Sympatric Native Cutthroat Trout in Small Streams
TLDR
To help managers more effectively plan and implement brook trout control programs, survival estimates from a field experiment are used to construct matrix population models for both species and linked the models by making the vital rates of young cutthroat trout a function of brook Trout density to represent the effect of invasion. Expand
Role of climate and invasive species in structuring trout distributions in the interior Columbia River Basin, USA
Recent and projected climate warming trends have prompted interest in impacts on coldwater fishes. We exam- ined the role of climate (temperature and flow regime) relative to geomorphology and landExpand
Abiotic and biotic factors associated with brook trout invasiveness into bull trout streams of the Canadian Rockies
TLDR
An information-theoretic approach was used to determine the association between brook trout invasiveness and a suite of abiotic and biotic factors, measured at 80 sites from 51 streams in the Canadian Rockies. Expand

Isolation Management with Artificial Barriers as a Conservation Strategy for Cutthroat Trout in Headwater Streams
TLDR
Removal of non-native trout and stocking did not enhance wild cutthroat trout populations, however, likely because the isolated reaches lacked critical habitat such as the deep pools necessary to sustain large fish. Expand
Spatial Distribution of Native and Nonnative Salmonids in Streams of the Eastern Slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains
TLDR
Stream reaches from the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains were surveyed and the distribution of native and nonnative salmonids as related to habitat variables measured at the reach scale was examined, finding both cutthroat and bull trout were more likely to occur in the higher elevations, whereas brook and rainbow trout wereMore likely to occurs in the lower elevations.

The impact of introduced brown and rainbow trout on native fish: the case of Australasia
TLDR
Brown trout appear to be more damaging than rainbow trout, and both trout introductions and land-use changes have affected native fishes in Australia and New Zealand. Expand
Diets of sympatric Lahontan cutthroat trout and nonnative brook trout: implications for species interactions
TLDR
Results do not provide compelling evidence to suggest feeding by Lahontan cutthroat trout is limited by presence of large numbers of brook trout in the North Fork Humboldt River, but fundamental differences in each species utilization of food in this system indicate that a better understanding of observed differences may help to explain the variable success ofBrook trout invasions across stream habitats in the Lahonta Basin.

Comparative Behavior and Habitat Utilization of Brook Trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) and Cutthroat Trout (Salmo clarki) in Small Streams in Northern Idaho
TLDR
Individual brook (Salvelinus fontinalis) and cutthroat (Salmo clarki) trout communicated with similar behavioral signals, both in laboratory stream-ch channels and in northern Idaho streams, but in study streams underyearlings of the two species utilized different microhabitats, particularly with respect to water depth, and so minimized chances for interaction.

FLOOD DISTURBANCE REGIMES INFLUENCE RAINBOW TROUT INVASION SUCCESS AMONG FIVE HOLARCTIC REGIONS
TLDR
This work evaluated the hypothesis that, among regions with suitable water temperatures, environmental resistance from flood disturbances that wash away trout fry strongly influence invasion success of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), the most widely introduced fish species. Expand
Effects of fire on fish populations: landscape perspectives on persistence of native fishes and nonnative fish invasions
TLDR
The challenge for providing better management guidelines will be to add solid empirical data and models to assess the relevance of emerging concepts and theories, and provide a sense of where and when fires pose significant risks and/or benefits to fishes. Expand
