We sampled at different locations from January 2007 through June 2007 in a parking lot, in a wetland, several forests, and suburban parks within Clayton, Henry, and Rockdale counties, including Panther Creek, Big Cotton Indian Creek, Bush Creek, Martin Creek, and an unnamed tributary of Alexander's Lake at Panola Mountain State Park.
Mosely Park (JP), Martin Creek located in Hidden Valley Park (HV), and a portion of Panola Mountain State Park (PM) on an unnamed tributary of Alexander's Lake, which was the only rocky-bottom stream in the study.
All of the study sites except Panola Mountain State Park were muddy-bottom streams, therefore sampling primarily involved sampling near vegetated margins, woody debris with organic matter, and the middle of the streambed where sand, rock, and gravel accumulate.
