The ‘egg sandwich’: a method for linking spatially resolved salmonid hatching rates with habitat variables in stream ecosystems
Abstract:This paper describes the development of the ‘egg sandwich’, a system for assessing stream substratum quality by linking measurements of depth-specific salmonid egg hatching success and physico-chemical water variables from the same sites within the interstitial zone.
