The presence of macrophytes in lentic systems often exerts a large influence on the spatial and temporal dynamics of the small-bodied fish that inhabit them, particularly in the presence of piscivorous predators. To examine spatial and temporal patterns of fish abundance in macrophyte stands we sampled fish bimonthly with fine-meshed fish traps by day and night in giant rush habitats of a River Murray billabong between October 1995 and September 1996. Three native and three exotic species were… CONTINUE READING
