Combining lake and watershed characteristics with Landsat TM data for remote estimation of regional lake clarity
Abstract Water clarity is a reliable indicator of lake productivity and an ideal metric of regional water quality. Clarity is an indicator of other water quality variables including chlorophyll-a,Expand

Macroinvertebrates as indicators of fish absence in naturally fishless lakes.
1. Little is known about native communities in naturally fishless lakes in eastern North America, a region where fish stocking has led to a decline in these habitats. 2. Our study objectivesExpand

Effects of introduced fish on macroinvertebrate communities in historically fishless headwater and kettle lakes
Abstract Widespread fish introductions have led to a worldwide decline in the number of fishless lakes and their associated communities. Studies assessing effects of fish stocking on nativeExpand

Predicting the locations of naturally fishless lakes
Summary 1. Fish have been introduced into many previously fishless lakes throughout North America over the past 100+ years. It is difficult to determine the historical distribution of fishlessExpand

Mercury Bioaccumulation in Northern Two-lined Salamanders from Streams in the Northeastern United States
Mercury (Hg) bioaccumulation in salamanders has received little attention despite widespread Hg contamination of aquatic ecosystems and worldwide amphibian declines. Here we report concentrations ofExpand

Predicted changes in climatic niche and climate refugia of conservation priority salamander species in the northeastern United States
Global climate change represents one of the most extensive and pervasive threats to wildlife populations. Amphibians, specifically salamanders, are particularly susceptible to the effects of changingExpand

Carcass analogues provide marine subsidies for macroinvertebrates and juvenile Atlantic salmon in temperate oligotrophic streams
SUMMARY 1. Anadromous fish populations entering freshwater ecosystems provide organic matter and marinederived nutrients during spawning and subsequent mortalities of adults. Dams and otherExpand

A comparison of winter mercury accumulation at forested and no-canopy sites measured with different snow sampling techniques
Abstract Atmospheric mercury (Hg) is delivered to ecosystems via rain, snow, cloud/fog, and dry deposition. The importance of snow, especially snow that has passed through the forest canopyExpand

PIT tags increase effectiveness of freshwater mussel recaptures
Abstract Translocations are used increasingly to conserve populations of rare freshwater mussels. Recovery of translocated mussels is essential to accurate assessment of translocation success. WeExpand

Landsat imagery reveals declining clarity of Maine's lakes during 1995–2010
Abstract.  Water clarity is a strong indicator of regional water quality. Unlike other common water-quality metrics, such as chlorophyll a, total P, or trophic status, clarity can be accurately andExpand
