This report documents the progress of the NRA Anglian Region Operational Investigation, Project 526, between 1 April and 31 October 1991. During this period the objectives, choice of sites and initial survey of the selected river sections, have been accomplished. For the purpose of sampling, the tributaries of the River Great Ouse have been grouped into four broad categories depending upon the dominant underlying geology of each stream. In addition to this the main channel of the Great Ouse has been sub-divided into four sections. For each tributary or river section chosen, a single 500 m sample site has been selected for detailed survey. A field methodology and data collection sheet has been devised and information regarding the tree, shrub and herb community at each site has been collated. Any apparent management of the channel or banks, or use of the site for particular activities is recorded and a general description of the site is provided. An annotated section map will be provided for each 500m stretch of river in the Project Report.
