The habitat use of young-of-the-year fishes during and after floods of varying timing and magnitude in a constrained lowland river (2014)
Journal Article
Bolland, J. D., Nunn, A. D., Lucas, M. C., & Cowx, I. G. (2015). The habitat use of young-of-the-year fishes during and after floods of varying timing and magnitude in a constrained lowland river. Ecological engineering, 75(February), (434-440). doi:10.1016/j.ecoleng.2014.12.009

Globally, channelisation and artificial levee construction have reduced rivers to single-thread channels isolated from their floodplains. These modifications may be particularly detrimental to fish during floods, because of increased severity of cond... Read More

Flow requirements of non-salmonids (2012)
Journal Article
NOBLE, R. A., Bolland, J., WALTON, S., PEIRSON, G., HARVEY, J. P., Noble, R., …COWX, I. G. (2012). Flow requirements of non-salmonids. Fisheries Management and Ecology, 19(6), (548-556). doi:10.1111/fme.12017. ISSN 0969-997x

Research into the relationships between non-salmonid fish population dynamics and discharge is in its infancy compared with salmonids, thus compromising the ability to manage flows in rivers and maintain ecological status. This study reviews the pote... Read More

Movements and habitat use of wild and stocked juvenile chub, Leuciscus cephalus (L.), in a small lowland river (2008)
Journal Article
BOLLAND, J. D., LUCAS, M. C., Bolland, J. D., Bolland, J., & COWX, I. G. (2008). Movements and habitat use of wild and stocked juvenile chub, Leuciscus cephalus (L.), in a small lowland river. Fisheries Management and Ecology, 15(5-6), 401-407. doi:10.1111/j.1365-2400.2008.00631.x

Stocking is a widespread management activity in inland fisheries, but the efficacy of such fishery enhancement measures is poorly understood. Radio-telemetry was used to compare the movements and habitat selection of stocked, juvenile chub, Leuciscus... Read More
