We quantified the timing and magnitude of the upstream migration of 3 genera of amphidromous shrimp on the Rio Espiritu Santo in northeastern Puerto Rico. We then used multiple regression analyses to identify potential Cited by:

Ments within the Luquillo Experimental Forest in northeastern Puerto Rico. The analysis is restricted to instream-flow requirements in upland streams dominated by the common communities of freshwater decapods. In headwater streams, pool volume was the most consistent factor in predicting the abundance of common freshwater shrimp.
