This reminds me of why I prefer email over being there... :-)

The Univ of Oklahoma Press published a book called Community and
Evolutionary Ecology of North American Stream Fishes, edited by William J.
Matthews and David C. Heins (1987). Though it isn't specific to Oklahoma
fishes, the scientific papers in it present many ecological observations
and principles. For example, there are papers called:
Grazing Fishes as Components of North American Ecosystems: Effects of
Campostoma anomalum
Seasonal Changes in the Thermal Preferences of Fantail, Rainbow and
Greenside Darters
others about habitat partitioning, predation effects, community
interactions, historical population changes, etc, that should probably
serve to remind us of how little we know about natural systems.
