  • a Significant differences between sites (identified by associated sample site number given in second column) are indicated in the median column and are in bold (P < 0.05). Accompanying significant Kruskal-Wallis (KW) and Mann-Whitney U (W) test results among sites and site pairs, respectively, are also presented. See Table 1 for flow regime definitions. ME, median; MAD, mean absolute deviation; C. goose, Canada goose.
