The primary purpose of this report is to document the development of a fish Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) for wadeable streams in West Virginia and to determine the applicability of the IBI in streams with different thermal regimes. The IBI will be developed using fish data collected at EMAP sites from 1993-1998. The RARE sites are used as an independent data set to test the robustness of the IBI across stream temperature regimes (i.e., cold, cool, and warm water streams).
