The 2006 Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper (YSOPP) Award is awarded to Jane Grant for the poster/PICO entitled:
Groundwater influence in hyporheic zones: a key control on site selection for Atlantic salmon spawning in a braided river system? (Grant, J.D.; Soulsby, C.; Malcolm, I.A.)

Jane is part of the Environmental Hydrology Research Group, in the School of Geosciences at the University of Aberdeen, UK. She is currently in the second year of her PhD which is investigating the effects of groundwater-surface water exchange on the hydroecology of the hyporheic zone of upland rivers. In particular she is interested in how groundwater exchange influences redd site selection by spawning Atlantic salmon in and hyporheic invertebrate community structure.
