That describes it pretty well - not exactly what I would call HIGH gradient, but
definitely moreso than in, say, south Georgia. I don't have any experience with
prairies, but the coastal plain is pretty flat, so I have an idea what you mean.
 Where I live is definitely woodlands habitat. Martin's creek is mostly under
canopy,-in-times has good fluviokinetics,-in-times none, and-in-times the term
is irrelevant (it's dry). While I prefer to see it flowing, with lots of
darters in it, it is also interesting to see what happens as conditions change.
