Table 1 List of macroinvertebrates which cumulatively account for >50% of the dissimilarity (Diss/SD) between sample event groups. Values represent their percent contribution to the dissimilarity between sample groups. Sample groups are categorized as pre-flood (Pre.), post-flood (Post.), and recovery (Rec.)
