abundances of torrent and reticulate sculpin, minnows, and introduced species, with moderate levels of external anomalies. These sites exhibited relatively small riffle areas, open canopies of low riparian quality, high maximum water temperatures, and intermediate nutrient and pesticide concentrations. More

Reticulate sculpins are abundant in the slow moving reaches of coastal headwater streams. In California their distribution is limited to several streams that are part of an Oregon-bound watersheds. More
