Morphology and taxonomy of Klamath Basin suckers (Catostomidae).
Numerous environmental factors have been implicated in the decline of catostomidae populations across the U.S., including harvest and larval entrainment (Rasmussen, 2011), hybridization, predation, and competition with introduced taxa (Compton et al., 2008; McDonald et al., 2008; Schultz and Bertrand, 2012), and elevated river discharge during the spawning and rearing period (Peterson et al., 2013).
