We employed field and laboratory data to test the hypothesis that microhabitat use by rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), rosyside dace (Clinostomus funduloides), longnose dace (Rhinichthys cataractae) and mottled sculpin (Cottus bairdi) was affected by energetic constraints. Both rainbow trout and rosyside dace occupied water-column microhabitats in Coweeta Creek, North Carolina, U.S.A. These species were over-represented at velocities requiring lower rates of oxygen consumption, as predicted… CONTINUE READING
