ABSTRACT: US Great Basin rivers were historically dominated by native fishes. However invasive species and severe drought challenge the stability of Great Basin fish assemblages. We surveyed fishes of the Carson, Humboldt, and Bear Rivers in Nevada, Idaho, and Utah. Our approach was to combine univariate and multivariate analyses to test for effects of invasive species on native fish assemblages among functional process zones. Understanding how the surrounding landscape influences invasive river fauna is useful in predicting invasion potential and mitigating the effects of established invasives.
