Plantation conifer forest can increase the risk of acidification in acid-sensitive catchments with consequences for macroinvertebrates and ecosystem functioning. This study compared headwater streams in forested and non-forested catchments to appraise the distance required for the acid effect on macroinvertebrates to diminish downstream. Strict criteria(More)
The purpose of this study was to consider the relative importance of several habitat variables in explaining the patterns in the structure of macroinvertebrate assemblages in open-water habitats, in relatively intact bogs and fens, which should inform conservation strategies. It was hypothesised that variables relating to the size of the water body would(More)
