Abstract : Bottomland hardwood wetlands occur on alluvial fioodplains of many river systems in the lower Mississippi River basin. These forested wetlands are inundated in winter and spring, they are highly productive, and most support diverse fish communities (Finger and Stewart 1987; Scott and Nielson 1989; Baker and Kiligore 1994).
