Catostomids comprised the majority (80%) of the larval fish drifting in Honey Creek.
1998), and near the basal roots of several major teleostean clades, such as salmonids (Allendorf & Thorgaard 1984), catostomids (Ferris 1984; Uyeno & Smith 1972), acipenserids (Vasil'ev 1999) and some cyprinids (Larhammer & Risinger 1994).
Materials for a revision of the catostomid fishes of eastern North America.
In the southeastern U.S., construction of dams and sills poses a dominant threat to catostomids (Douglas and Jordan, 2002; Cooke et al., 2005) from reductions in habitat quality related to alteration of river hydrology and substrate composition (Yoder and Beaumier, 1986; Graf, 1999; Cooke et al., 2005; Adams et al., 2006; Grabowski and Isely, 2007).
Demographics of the spawning aggregations of four catostomid species in the Savannah River, South Carolina and Georgia.
While the restricted-movement paradigm appears valid for some taxa (e.g., salmonids, Rodriguez, 2002; cottids, Knaepkens et al., 2004; petty and Grossman, 2004), a growing body of literature suggests that it might not be true under other conditions or other species (e.g., common carp Cyprinus carpio and catostomids in large rivers; Matheney and Rabeni, 1995; Crook, 2004; Grabowski and Isely, 2006; Jeffres et al., 2006).
Catostomid spawning was evaluated at two mainstem Baraboo River reaches (Fig.
Increasing hybridization of these two native catostomids with introduced catostomids in the Colorado River Basin also threatens their continued existence (McAda, 1977; Cook et al., 2005; Compton, 2007; Gill et al., 2007; McDonald et al., 2008).

Distribution and evolution of the North American catostomid fishes of the subgenus Pantosteus, genus Catostomus.
The catostomid genus Cycleptus has been recently recognized as polytypic, with allopatric groups in the Mississippi system, the Gulf Slope drainages (Mobile Basin to Pearl River, Louisiana) and the Rio Grande (Burr and Mayden, 199).
