Description: The upper Gila River in New Mexico is one of the few unobstructed rivers in the Colorado River Basin with largely intact native fish populations, including four federally listed and one state listed species.Freshwater systems throughout the West continue to be threatened by human encroachment and water development. Methodologies or decision support tools to evaluate resource management practices that foster an understanding of how fish species adapt to the effects of climate change are critical to future resource management planning.

If dispersal dynamics of native and nonnative fishes can be predicted by life history strategy, this research will provide a general framework for conservation that considers how community interaction and responses to extreme events (e.g., those predicted by climate change) are influenced by fragmenting populations. By developing decisions support models, hosting workshops, and presenting our findings to regional stakeholder groups, we aim to provide conservation and water resource agencies critical information from which they can use to inform conservation plans.
