ABSTRACT - DELIVERABLE 85

Finalised field protocol - filed guidance

This report describes the final field protocol for paired studies of straight and braided channels examining discharge ? restoration of habitat and diversity ? indicators. The overall aim is to compare straight (modified) with braided (restored) river stretches. The report describes a habitat mapping approach and provides field guidance for the recording of transect information both instream and terrestrial / semi−aquatic. Guidelines for invertebrate sampling, sorting and sub−sampling are specified. Template site sheets are provided for recording information collected in the field.
