Putting flow-ecology relationships into practice: A decision-support system to assess fish community response to water-management scenarios
This paper presents a conceptual framework to operationalize flow–ecology relationships into decision-support systems of practical use to water-resource managers, who are commonly tasked with balancing multiple competing socioeconomic and environmental priorities. We illustrate this framework with a case study, whereby fish community responses to...Cartwright, Jennifer M.; Caldwell, Casey; Nebiker, Steven; Knight, Rodney
