Summary

The data set associated with this metadata is included in three separate csv files: 'Occupancy_Data', 'Stage_Raw', and 'Flood_Stage_Height'. 'Occupancy_Data' was used to fit the dynamic occupancy models and includes 17 columns: Time: time periods numbered 1 to 5; 'Oxbow': individual oxbows numbered 1 through 10; 'OxbowName': the name of each oxbow; 'Species': species encountered during sampling, numbered 1 to 16; 'SpeciesName': common and scientific names for each species; 'Occ1', 'Occ2', 'Occ3': detection (1) and non-detection data for each Time, Oxbow, Species combination across 3 survey occasions (NAs represent surveys that did not occur); Binary-coded life history characteristics (traits) for each species: 'Intolerant', 'Tolerant', [...]

Purpose

The goal of this study was to document patterns of hydrologic connectivity between a series of oxbows and their nearby streams and periodically monitor fish assemblages for evidence of responses to the differing patterns of connectivity. Occurrence of Topeka shiners was an important aspect of the fish assemblage response. A combination of graphical and occupancy modeling approaches was used to explore these relationships. The data were used appropriately.
