Hershler, Robert, David B. Madsen, and Donald R. Currey, editors. Great Basin Aquatic Systems History. Smithsonian Contributions to the Earth Sciences, number 33,405 pages, 190 figures, 21 tables, 2002.—The 14 papers collected herein treat diverse aspects of the aquatic history of the Great Basin of the western United States and collectively attempt to summarize and integrate portions of the vast body of new information on this subject that has been acquired since the last such compilation was… 
The Late Quaternary biogeographic histories of some Great Basin mammals (western USA)
The Great Basin of arid western North America provides one of the most detailed late Pleistocene and Holocene mammal records available for any part of the world, though the record is by far strongest
Ecosystem and paleohydrological response to Quaternary climate change in the Bonneville Basin, Utah
We report the results of a detailed paleoecological study of the Bonneville basin covering the last ~280,000 yr. Our study used fossil ostracodes and a sedimentological record obtained from the
Pluvial lakes in the Great Basin of the western United States: a view from the outcrop
Abstract Paleo-lakes in the western United States provide geomorphic and hydrologic records of climate and drainage-basin change at multiple time scales extending back to the Miocene. Recent reviews
Pleistocene pluvial lakes of the American West: a short history of research
Abstract Scientific investigations of Pleistocene pluvial lakes in the American West occurred in five phases. The pioneer phase prior to 1870 saw former lakes identified by missionary priests, fur
A second species of Pyrgulopsis (Hydrobiidae) from the Missouri River basin, with molecular evidence supporting faunal origin through Pliocene stream capture across the northern continental divide
TLDR
This study provides the first molecular phylogenetic evidence that bears upon the freshwater molluscan biogeography across the northern continental divide.
A test of the vicariance hypothesis of western North American freshwater biogeography
TLDR
The non-concordance between phylogeography and landscape reported in this and other recent studies of Pyrgulopsis suggests that members of this diverse and imperiled genus should not be managed using an a priori, ‘watershed as conservation unit’ approach.
Species Diversity, Phylogeny and Phylogeography of Centrarchidae
TLDR
This chapter presents an overview of previous investigations and hypotheses concerning the evolutionary relationships of Centrarchidae, including a discussion of recent efforts using morphological and molecular data in addition to those that pre-date the development of phylogenetic systematics, or cladistics.
Biogeography and conservation of aquatic fauna in spring-fed tropical canyons of the southern Sonoran Desert, Mexico
TLDR
This work documented the biodiversity of aquatic animals at 19 sites across three arid mountain ranges in Sonora, Mexico, characterized macrohabitat types, examined seasonal variation in aquatic invertebrate communities, and explored the effects of an exotic fish (tilapia) on native communities.
Investigating the effects of Pleistocene events on genetic divergence within Richardsonius balteatus, a widely distributed western North American minnow
TLDR
mitochondrial DNA sequence data is used to assess phylogeography, and to test two biogeographic hypotheses regarding post-glacial colonization by redside shiner: 1) RedsideShiner entered the Bonneville Basin at the time of theBonneville Flood (Late Pleistocene; 14.5 Ka), and 2) red side shiner colonized British Columbia post- glacialially from a single refugium in the Upper Columbia River drainage.
A molecular phylogeny of aquatic gastropods provides a new perspective on biogeographic history of the Snake River Region.
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny indicates that the Natricola clade is restricted to the modern Snake-Columbia River Basin and the Oregon Lakes region whereas northern California populations previously assigned to this subgenus belong to other lineages.

Biogeography of great basin mammals: Paradigm lost?
TLDR
Biogeographic relationships of mammals occurring on mountaintops of the Great Basin of western North America are re-examined on the basis of newly acquired information, and a relatively weak pattern is revealed between species richness and island size.
Plant Inertia Reassessed
In a recent article, Cole (1985) touched a highly sensitive topic by questioning the ability of plants to respond to climatic changes. Given that the majority of terrestrial paleoclimatic information
Using Montane Mammals to Model Extinctions Due to Global Change
We use data on the species-area relationship and the nested subset structure of the boreal mammal faunas inhabiting isolated mountaintops in the Great Basin to develop a simple quantitative model
Late Wisconsin/Early Holocene Vegetation in the Bonneville Basin
Abstract Woodrat middens from the northern Bonneville Basin allow a reconstruction of vegetation changes from 14,000 to 9000 yr ago. Cold montane steppe, dominated by sagebrush, covered much of the
Biogeographic scale and biodiversity of mountain forest mammals of western North America
This paper develops a multi-scale approach to the analysis of the influence of immigration and extinction on community structure of non-volant mammals on montane forest islands of western North
Early Holocene pinyon (Pinus monophylla) in the northeastern Great Basin.
Fine-grained excavation and analysis of a stratigraphic column from Danger Cave, northeastern Great Basin, suggests prehistoric hunter-gatherers were collecting and using singleleaf pinyon (Pinus
A 250,000-Year Climatic Record from Great Basin Vein Calcite: Implications for Milankovitch Theory
TLDR
A continuous record of oxygen-18 (δ18O) variations in the continental hydrosphere during the middle-to-late Pleistocene has been obtained from a uranium-series dated calcitic vein in the southern Great Basin, and dates indicate that the last interglacial stage began before 147 � 3 ka.
Mass collecting and the diet breadth model: A Great Basin example
TLDR
Examination at Lakeside Cave in northwestern Utah discovered that when the abundance of grasshoppers is high, and mass collecting is productive, the hunting of bighorn sheep and other large animal resources may have been abandoned, contradicting commonly held assumptions about prey size.
Spatial Variations of Holocene Climatic Change in the Yellowstone Region
Abstract The paleoecologic record of the northern Rocky Mountains shows considerable spatial variability, which has been difficult to explain as a unified response to large-scale changes in effective
Neogene through Pleistocene paleoclimate of the Great Salt Lake region, northeastern Great Basin, USA
In a cooperative agreement between Amoco Production Company and the University of Arizona Geosciences Department, extensive data and resources associated with 15 deep wells drilled in the Great Salt
