 Aberdeen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Legend has it that during the Wars of Scottish Independence, when the Castle of Aberdeen was stormed and the English troops 'were killed all in one night', the watchword to initiate the campaign was 'Bon Accord', and it is from this massacre that the Coat of Arms and the motto originated.
Devenick's Bridge, which crosses the Dee from Ardoe to Cults, was built in 1837 to link the now ruined Banchory Devenick Parish Church, on the south bank of the Dee, with its parishoners, who lived on the north bank.
However, due to erosion, the Dee shifted its course in the 1970s and 1980s, sweeping away the southern approach spans, and in 1984 the decking was removed as a safety precation.

The river names and components of river groups are defined first, followed by the probability of extinction and habitat limitation for each stock and group, along with the minimum, median, and maximum number of years of habitat limitation for each stock and group (Table 18).
As expected, straying caused the rivers with smaller initial populations to have lower probabilities of extinction at the expense of the larger rivers (Table 23).
River specific replacement rates when CSE levels are used for initial population abundances, no stocking occurs, and base case parameters or survival rates increased to achieve a median replacement rate for the DPS of one.

 Historical perspective for Dee, River   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The Dee, from a point about 3½ miles E of Ballater, flows through a gradually widening valley, still narrow, but with less and less of its former Highland character; and it forces its way through a comminuted compound of granite, gneiss, porphyry, greenstone, and hornblende débris, and receives on both banks numerous small tributaries.
Retouching Aberdeenshire at the SW corner of Drumoak parish, it thence runs 14¼ miles along the boundary between the two counties to the sea at Aberdeen; and, from the point of its entering Kincardineshire onward to its mouth, offers alternations of tame hill scenery and beautiful lowland landscape.
The Dee was once the most finely wooded and the best fishing river in Scotland; and, though much Damaged by entails, manufactories, and stake-nets, it still, for wood and fish, has scarce a rival among British rivers.
