Abstract We summarized historic and recent fish distributions in South Dakota and analyzed fish faunal similarity at 2 spatial scales (geomorphic province and river drainage) for both historic (native) and recent (post-1990) faunas. We quantified zoogeographic patterns between geomorphic provinces and among neighboring river drainages for historic and recent faunas. We also quantified faunal change (species losses and additions) between provinces and among drainages. Ninety-seven fishes were… 

Fish faunal provinces of the conterminous United States of America reflect historical geography and familial composition

Fish faunal provinces are quantitatively determined and interpreted in the context of the geological history of North America and provide a starting point for future studies on biogeographically diverse and dynamic provinces.

Nongame Fish Species Distribution and Habitat Associations in the Snake River Basin of Southern Idaho

Stream order was the strongest loading factor for canonical correlations constructed for study reaches both above and below Shoshone Falls, suggesting that the increased abundance of catostomids and cyprinids generally occurred on a longitudinal downstream gradient.

Conservation Status of Five Headwater Stream Specialists in South Dakota

Abstract Native stream fish zoogeography has changed substantially across North America during the last century because habitat degradation, stream fragmentation and introductions of nonnative

Homogenization, Differentiation, and the Widespread Alteration of Fish Faunas

Synthesis of these studies concludes that homogenization of fish faunas has been widespread and that introduc - tions, especially of sport fishes, have played a bigger role in altering fish faunaas than extirpations.

The emblematic minnows of the North American Great Plains: A synthesis of threats and conservation opportunities

This work identified 17 known or candidate pelagic-broadcast spawning fishes and systematically synthesized the literature on their biology and ecology in relation to major threats to persistence and highlighted areas where scientific and management communities are lacking information.

Taxonomic homogenization of woodland plant communities over 70 years

An analysis of woodland patches across a southern English county in which 70 years of change in the composition of vascular plant communities is quantified is presented, providing the first direct evidence of taxonomic homogenization in the UK.

Changes in taxonomic and phylogenetic diversity in the Anthropocene

It is found that local SR and phylogenetic α diversity (Faith's PD (phylogenetic diversity)) increased for all taxonomic groups, however, when measured with a metric that is independent of SR, phylogenetic β diversity declined for allTaxonomic groups.

The Native Range of Walleyes in the Missouri River Drainage

Abstract The southern limit of the native range of walleye Sander vitreus is difficult to determine because of sparse historical information, early stockings, and early human disturbances. The

Population characteristics of bighead and silver carp on the northwestern front of their North American invasion.

Observing spatial and temporal trends in population dynamics of Asian carps in three tributaries to the Missouri River in South Dakota from 2009 to 2012 will provide additional invaluable insight into complex invasive species, assist with understanding AsianCarps population dynamics during and after an invasion, and expose the potential negative impactsAsian carps may be having on prairie stream ecosystems.



Island Biogeography of Native Fish Faunas among Great Plains Drainage Basins: Basin Scale Features Influence Composition

We reviewed native fish zoogeography in 22 major tributary basins of the Missouri River basin in the Great Plains geomorphic province and used island biogeographical ap- proaches to study the

An analysis of homogenization and differentiation of Canadian freshwater fish faunas with an emphasis on British Columbia

Faunal homogenization and differentiation occur when geographic regions show increased or decreased, respectively, similarity to each other in species composition owing to introductions and

Consequences of stream impoundment on fish communities in a small north American drainage

We examined impoundment associated fish community changes in the Kinkaid Creek drainage of southern Illinois by comparing collections made in 1998 and 1999 with a pre-impoundment survey conducted in

Invasion of North American drainages by alien fish species

SUMMARY 1. Data from the literature were used to document colonization patterns by introduced freshwater fishes in 125 drainages across temperate North America. We analysed this data set to quantify

Fish Associations with Four Habitat Types in a South Dakota Prairie Stream

Fish were collected from riffles, runs, pools and woody habitats in the Vermillion River, South Dakota, to examine the temporal dynamics of habitat use during non-flood summer months and found little difference in the densities of small and large fishes.

The Zoogeography of North American Freshwater Fishes

Zoogeography of the Freshwater Fishes of the Southeastern United States' Savannah River to Lake Ponchartrain and the Evolution of the Rio Grande Basin as Inferred from Its Fish Fauna Origin.

Is there an influence of historical events on contemporary fish species richness in rivers? Comparisons between Western Europe and North America

Freshwater fish species richness on 132 West European and North American rivers is analysed using eleven variables related to contemporary ecology (nine) and history (two). This is done in order to


The fish fauna was characterized by ecologic plasticity, with the most successful species showing marked habitat flexibility, and Habitat partitioning was less structured in this stream than in more stable environments that have been studied.

Status of Fishes in New York: Increases, Declines and Homogenization of Watersheds

Within the state, patterns of species distribution are complex and are affected by environmental differences among the watersheds, the presence of suitable dispersal routes and widespread introductions.
