Conceived within the framework of an international network initiated with a NATO Science Programme 'Collaborative Linkage Grant' (awarded to GHC), this study was funded jointly by a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowship (to GZ) and the UK Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). We thank the owners and staff at Tanyard Fishery for providing access to their property and without whom the sampling would have been impossible. We also thank E. Watson for access to her property (Boringwheel Lake) during 2003-2007, M.S. Worlock for access to his property (Watersmeet) throughout the 10 years of research on Batts Bridge Stream, and F. Villeneuve for assistance in the field.
