The distribution of three species of darters (Percidae) was studied with respect to vegetation and substrate preferences. The distribution of these darters was correlated with presence of vegetation. Quantitative field data were combined with a laboratory evaluation of preference to determine the sensory mechanisms operating in habitat selection.
