General Information

Total number of participants : 
2.00
Notes: 
Sampling site was about 10m downstream from sampling site in May 2021 (other side of bridge) because thick vegetation prevented access to spring sampling site. The September sampling site has trees and shrubs on bank, compared to lower vegetation on the upstream side of the bridge (used in May) - hence different info.
