Armitage et al. (2001) found that bank profile and structure were major determinants of macroinvertebrate assemblages. Total abundances were five to six times greater in shallow-sloping vegetated sites compared with steeply sloped and artificial banks. Highest abundances were found in spring but the greatest biodiversity was observed in August and September, both findings having particular relevance to management issues. 5 FACTORS AFFECTING STREAM HABITAT Any disturbances to stream structure and/or function will affect the habitat available to riverine biota.
