Fish Assemblage Structure in Relation to Environmental Variation among Brazos River Oxbow Lakes

  author={Kirk O. Winemiller and S. Armagan Tarim and DAVID SHORMANN and James B. Cotner}
—Fish assemblages and habitat conditions of oxbow lakes and the main channel of the middle-lower Brazos River, a meandering lowland river in east central Texas, were investigated during summer 1994. All oxbows were eutrophic, with chlorophyll-a levels of up to 640 mg/L. Assemblage structure showed large between-lake variation that was explained by both physical and biotic variables, with combinations of water depth, dissolved oxygen, dissolved nutrients, turbidity, and plankton densities… CONTINUE READING
