  • a Significant differences between sites (identified by site number) are indicated in the median column and are in bold (P < 0.05). High flow, ≥0.018 m3 s−1; low flow, ≥0.002 m3 s−1 and <0.018 m3 s−1; no flow, <0.002 m3 s−1. Accompanying significant Kruskal-Wallis (KW) and Mann-Whitney U (W) test results among sites and site pairs, respectively, are also presented. ME, median; MAD mean absolute deviation.
