Laboratory analysis of periphyton AFDM on tiles was consistent with the visual observations: highest AFDM was in the open, low density channels (Table 2).
Uptake by periphyton from normal density channels at open sites was 1.7 times greater than uptake by periphyton from normal density channels at shaded sites, and uptake by periphyton from low density channels at open sites was [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 2 OMITTED] 2.4 times greater than uptake by periphyton from normal density channels at shaded sites.
