Title All spp. counts (for PCOA)
Downloaded 10 times
Description Raw count data of fish species of all ages captured at 45 sites in the New River basin of NC, VA and WV (USA) in summer 2012. These data were used for the principal coordinates analysis.

Title Grouped demographic data (for SEM and SGH regressions)
Downloaded 9 times
Description Stream fish data combined into reproductive groups (see Methods section of manuscript) and classified as adult or juvenile based on modal breaks in length frequency histograms (see Methods section of manuscript). These data were used in structural equation modeling, and the juvenile portions of the dataset (divided by nest count) were used as response variables in regressions testing the stress-gradient hypothesis predictions.

Title Habitat, nest counts and sampling effort
Downloaded 10 times
Description Habitat variables as described in the manuscript. Electrofishing effort (effort) is reported in seconds. The variables "agri.rank" and "wsa.rank" represent ranked values of each raw measurement of %agriculture and watershed area (km2), respectively. These two variables were added to calculate the variable "stress.bin", which served as the independent variable in regressions testing predictions of the stress-gradient hypothesis.

Title Nest web observations
Downloaded 11 times
Description Cyprinid nesting observations, including which species constructed the nest and which species used those nests for reproduction. These data were used for generating the nest webs.
