Groundwater and Species at Risk
We designed a simple choice
experiment to demonstrate the relationship between groundwater
seepages and persistence of threatened black redhorse (Moxostoma
duquesnei) populations in the Grand River, Ontario.
Using a randomized block design we tested habitat preferences
relative to the influence of groundwater for juvenile black
redhorse and greater redhorse (Moxostoma valenciennesi).
Future studies will include working with the threatened silver
shiner (Notropis photogenis).
