Fish assemblage convergence along stream environmental gradients: an intercontinental analysis

This study analyzes trait–environment relationships across multiple stream fish assemblages representing evolutionarily divergent faunas. One hundred and ninety‐seven species and forty streams were sampled from five regions: Belize, Benin, Brazil, Cambodia and USA. By examining trait–environment plots, multiple congruent trait–environment patterns were found across all regions.
