As anticipated, stream segment sales were relatively flat and inventory increased slightly as compared to the prior quarter.
If six or more of the "Most Wanted" organisms are found, a stream segment is deemed fully supportive of aquatic life.
In stream segmentation, various defined streams are linked to generate a unique value for all the pixels belonging to a single stream segment. Stream segment may be a head segment or a segment between two segment junctions.
Although we did not directly quantify mottled sculpin movement using telemetry before stream restoration, the electrofishing surveys clearly document an abrupt and distinct shift in stream segment use after stream restoration (DeBoer, 2008).
They are believed to be designed to give Bulgaria's South Stream segment a status of "interconnector", which would make it untouchable by EU law.
Muskrats occurring in restrictive riparian habitats had highly linear home ranges, and the shape of their LHRs largely depended upon the sinuosity of the stream segment (see Fig 1).
The introduction of the new coding system permits the individualisation, spatial positioning and access to any stream segment and basin in the data-base, irrespective of its order of magnitude.

He said: "These took that new design language into a main stream segment, giving us two cars that are contemporary looking with luxurious interiors lined with wood, metal and leather, which appeals to one's sense of luxury, comfort and of course speed."
The best estimate of this opportunity cost would be the market rental value of agricultural land immediately adjacent to each buffered stream segment. Land quality affects the opportunity cost of removing land from agricultural production and will likely have a large impact on the geographical distribution of costs (Nakao and Sohngen, 2000).
