Ecological effects of river flow and temperature regimes on fish populations in Canada
This doctoral thesis aims to generate empirical estimates of the spatial variation of biotic metrics over a range of flow and thermal regimes from regulated and natural rivers, with the intention of providing a predictive framework of the effects of flow and temperature regime variability or degree of alteration on fish communities.
