Résumé
Freshwater fishes of the desert southwest are one of the most imperiled groups throughout the world. Conservation of freshwater fish is often stymied by knowledge gaps associated with the biology and ecology of imperiled groups. Furthermore, the outcomes of conservation efforts are often uncertain leading to misuse of resources or inaction by natural resource management agencies. By addressing knowledge gaps and using these data to assess population persistence, my research will aid state and federal agencies in identifying species in need of conservation and directing conservation efforts to maximize financial investments.

Objectifs
Address knowledge gaps surrounding fish populations in New Mexico and surrounding regions.Describe population dynamics (i.e., recruitment, growth, mortality) and demographics of arid-region fish species.Evaluate habitat use of fishes in the desert southwest.Use population viability and sensitivity analysis to identify factors constraining population recovery and direct conservation efforts.
