While scientists have developed methods to predict aspects of fish diversity in specific river locations, a model to understand what factors may drive a comprehensive suite of fish biodiversity patterns in a large and complex system of rivers has been elusive. Now a group of researchers reports success using a so-called "neutral model" to study fish diversity in the sprawling Mississippi-Missouri River System.
