- ... Instream flow models link a physical habitat model that predicts flow-related changes in hydraulics to a biological model that predicts the response of fish to altered velocity and depth. Habitat suitability curves (HSCs) based on frequency of habitat use (fish occurrence relative to available habitat) remain the most widely used biological models in habitat simulations. However, in some contexts ...

- ... Common applications of models to predict the response of fish habitat to altered stream flow (such as the Physical Habitat Simulation Model; PHABSIM) assume that fish abundance is directly related to the area of suitable habitat for limiting life stages and usually ignore flow effects on prey abundance. However, if prey availability is flow sensitive, then fish production may be more closely relat ...
