We used a topographic index (TI) approach to link the presence of young-of-year (YOY) brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) at groundwater seepage and stream sites in the land–lake ecotone with subwatershed topography surrounding a set of 21 lakes in Algonquin Provincial Park, Ontario. A lakeshore site's TI value was positively related to the temperature difference between the substrate and lake surface, indicating higher TI values were associated with greater groundwater input. YOY brook trout… CONTINUE READING
