Coincidentally, the two sites are located in the same zoogeographic region, with the result that numerous animal species (but also plants) are common to both, allowing us to perform statistical tests in the two sites using the same hypothesis.

Our results suggest that certain hydrological factors, particularly fluctuations in baseflow, can indicate habitat persistence for fish and thus provide information on the suite of species traits (and corresponding species) most likely to be favored under a particular hydrological regime in a given zoogeographic region. By implication, modifications of hydrological regimes should lead to adjustments in coarsely defined assemblage structure.
