Reservoirs can drive morphological divergence of resident fish populations, but mechanisms behind observed divergence are elusive. We quantified shape variation in a native fish from reservoir and stream habitats as well as reared offspring from both habitat types in common garden with flow and no flow treatments. Results suggest some portions of morphological variation was preserved in offspring but flow-induced plasticity is likely not responsible for morphological variation observed in the field.
