Reproduction and recruitment dynamics of flathead chub Platygobio gracilis relative to flow and temperature regimes in Fountain Creek, Colorado
MetadataShow full item record
A paucity of basic ecological information for flathead chub Platygobio gracilis has made effective conservation planning difficult for this declining species. The objective of this study was to contribute insight to the poorly understood reproductive ecology of flathead chub, and enable prediction of effects of future hydrologic alterations in Fountain Creek, Colorado, to avoid or mitigate negative impacts from these actions. To accomplish this I investigated the influence of flow and water temperature regimes on reproduction and recruitment dynamics of flathead chub in Fountain Creek from May ...
