Flow is often presumed to determine the distribution of stream invertebrates across stream beds. When temperatures are high, however, dissolved oxygen (DO) and its interactions with other environmental gradients may be more important. Field surveys were carried out in summer at two sites in a sand-bed stream in south-east Australia.
