Fish habitat use during summer was examined at micro- and meso-levels, to determine species associations in the upper Roanoke River watershed, Virginia. Based on multivariate-mesohabitat analysis and examination of mean microhabitat use, seven habitat-use guilds were apparent. These included four rheophilic (fast-riffle, riffle/run, fast-generalist, and shallow-rheophilic) and three limnophilic guilds (pool/run, open-pool, and pool-cover) that were reasonably robust across two river segments… CONTINUE READING
