Topic Habitat: Physical Habitat Quality Scores in Novato Creek 2000

Caption:  The Chart Table hab_bmi_novato_mcdpw_1999_2000.xls.db is the same as the Source Table, although filtered for the Novato Creek watershed. The metrics included in the table are the mean values for Taxonomic Richness (TAXARICH), Percent Dominant Taxon (PCTDOM), EPT Taxa (EPTTAXA), Modified EPT (MODEPT), Shannon Diversity (SHANNON), and Tolerance Value (TOLVALUE), along with the associated Index of Biological Integrity (IBI) score for each metric as well as the total IBI (IBI_TOTSCORE) and rank (IBIRANK). In addition, EPT Index (EPTINDEX) is also included. The habitat parameters include instream cover (INSTCOV), embeddedness (EMBEDD), velocity/depth (VELDEPTH), sediment deposition (SEDDEP), channel flow (CHANFLOW), channel alteration (CHANALT), riffle frequency (RIFFREQ), bank stability (BANKSTAB), vegetative protection (VEGPROT), riparian vegetative zone width (RIPVEG), total reach score (REACHTOT), condition (CONDITION), percent vegetative canopy cover estimate (VEGCANOP), water temperature in C (WATTEMP), specific conductance in uS/cm at 25 C (SPECCOND), and comments pertinent to the habitat assessment (HABCOMMENTS).
