This project aims to understand how Southwest intermittent and ephemeral dryland streams provide critical habitat and population connectivity for obligatory aquatic species. The project examined how hydrology, hydrologic connectivity, and other riverine characteristics influence the community structure and population genetics e.g. gene flow, structure, diversity of amphibian and aquatic insect species across a gradient of flow permanence within Fort Huachuca and the surrounding Sky Island mountain ranges.
