The streams and rivers of the GCP LCC are delicately balanced ecosystems that link diverse habitats with the people, plants and animals that rely on clean and abundant water supplies to thrive. The natural patterns of seasonal flows in streams and rivers – called instream or environmental flows - are the drivers for many of the ecosystem functions and processes on which the riverine and coastal natural and human economies rely. Extreme droughts and population growth in the GCP LCC region have forced the recognition that water resources are limited and need to be better managed. Excessive extractions and diversions of water alter instream flows and threaten the ecological processes that are dependent upon them. Dams...

Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs) form a national network of partnerships working collaboratively across jurisdictions and political boundaries to address landscape-style changes and impacts to America’s land, water, wildlife and cultural resources by leveraging and sharing science capacity. The Gulf Coast Prairie LCC is partnering with the Southeast Aquatic Resource Partnership (SARP) to ensure that the rich aquatic resources of their region are protected from impacts of future population growth and climate change. SARP has identified flow alteration as a priority threat and is helping the GCPLCC to advance regional instream flow science by developing basic information necessary to support credible instream...

The Ecological Limits of Hydrological Alteration (ELOHA) framework calls for the development of flow-ecology hypotheses to support protection of the flow regime from ecologically harmful alteration due to human activities. As part of a larger instream flow project for the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GCP LCC), regional flow-ecology hypotheses were developed for fish, mussels, birds, and riparian vegetation (Davis and Brewer 20141). The objective of this study was to assess the usefulness of existing ecological and hydrological data to test these hypotheses or others that may be developed in the future. Several databases related to biological collections and hydrologic data from Oklahoma,...
