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

The winter diets of 0+ year juvenile dace Leuciscus leuciscus and roach Rutilus rutilus in the lower River Trent, England, were dominated by aufwuchs. There were no significant changes in the relative condition of either fish species over the winter.... Read More

Benefits to 0+fishes of connecting man-made waterbodies to the lower River Trent, England (2007)
Journal Article
Nunn, A. D., Harvey, J. P., & Cowx, I. G. (2007). Benefits to 0+fishes of connecting man-made waterbodies to the lower River Trent, England. River Research and Applications, 23(4), (361-376). doi:10.1002/rra.993. ISSN 1535-1459

Floodplain waterbodies are reputed to enhance recruitment of riverine fish populations via provision of spawning and nursery habitat, refuge from floods, and increased availability of planktonic food resources compared with main river channels. Notwi... Read More

Is water temperature an adequate predictor of recruitment success in cyprinid fish populations in lowland rivers? (2003)
Journal Article
Frear, P., Nunn, A., Harvey, J., & Cowx, I. (2003). Is water temperature an adequate predictor of recruitment success in cyprinid fish populations in lowland rivers?. Freshwater biology, 48(4), 579-588. doi:10.1046/j.1365-2427.2003.01033.x

1. Higher than average ambient water temperature in the first year of life may be responsible for strong cohorts of adult cyprinid fish. Whilst temperature explains much of the variation in year-class strength (YCS), however, it is not the only influ... Read More

Recruitment patterns of six species of cyprinid fishes in the lower River Trent, England (2002)
Journal Article
