Pre- and Post-Construction Assessment of Nutrient Concentrations at Shallow Water Habitat Restoration Sites on the Lower Missouri River
Loss of shallow water habitat (SWH) is hypothesized as a factor contributing to the decline of native Missouri River fishes, including the endangered pallid sturgeon. As a result, the restoration ofExpand

WATER QUALITY DURING TWO HIGH-FLOW YEARS ON THE LOWER MISSOURI RIVER: THE EFFECTS OF RESERVOIR AND TRIBUTARY CONTRIBUTIONS
Complex socioeconomic and ecological issues, ranging from impaired streams to Gulf of Mexico hypoxia, have made nutrient management an increasingly important issue across the USA. High flows duringExpand

Is Shallow Water a Suitable Surrogate for Assessing Efforts to Address Pallid Sturgeon Population Declines
It is hypothesized that slow, shallow water habitats benefit larval pallid sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus; however, testing this hypothesis is difficult, given the low number of larval pallid sturgeonExpand

Assessment of Missouri River floodplain invertebrates during historic inundation: implications for river restoration
Floodplain connectivity is important to aquatic organisms in large rivers. Anthropogenic alterations regulating the Missouri River have limited connectivity and negatively affected native fauna.Expand

Age-0 Sturgeon Accessibility to Constructed and Modified Chutes in the Lower Missouri River
AbstractShallow-water habitat is hypothesized to provide nursery habitat for young fish. The construction of side-channel chutes to restore shallow-water habitat is common in the lower MissouriExpand

Age‐0 Shovelnose Sturgeon Prey Consumption in the Lower Missouri River
A lack of nutritious food during the first year of life is a hypothesized factor that may limit survival of endangered pallid sturgeon Scaphirhynchus albus in the lower Missouri River (LMOR).Expand

Age‐0 sturgeon and shallow water: A local‐ and reach‐scale assessment
Despite the hypothesized benefits to age-0 Scaphirhynchus sturgeon, the role that slow, shallow water plays during early life history remains uncertain. Although several studies have reported theExpand
