Description: Relating local demographic processes to spatial structure (e.g. habitat heterogeneity) is essential for understanding population and species persistence (Hanski & Gilpin, 1997; Fagan, 2002). Yet few studies have tested general hypotheses about the importance of spatial patterns in determining population dynamics within riverstream networks (Lowe, Likens & Power, 2006). Metapopulation studies of stream biota such as freshwater fishes often relate site occupancy to the hierarchical structure of riverstream networks (Dunham & Rieman, 1999; Taylor & Warren, 2001), but rarely consider how colonization varies according to connectivity, dispersal geometry and spatial scale (Pannell & Charlesworth, 1999; Fagan, 2002; Lowe et al., 2006). Similarly, studies focusing on movement of stream fishes often identify habitat and conditions that favour or constrain dispersal (Power, 1984; Skalski & Gilliam, 2000), but few effectively link movement patterns to the spatial distribution of source and sink habitats (Lowe et al., 2006).
