Filming and snorkelling as visual techniques to survey fauna in difficult to access tropical rainforest streams

Dense tropical rainforest, waterfalls and shallow riffle-run-pool sequences pose challenges for researcher access to remote reaches of streams for surveying aquatic fauna, particularly when using capture-based collecting techniques (e.g. trapping, backpack and boat electrofishing). We compared the detection of aquatic species (vertebrates and invertebrates >1cm in body length) within pool habitats of a rainforest stream obtained by two visual techniques during both the wet and dry season:...[Show more]
