The Role of Disturbance in Stream Ecology
We define disturbance in stream ecosystems to be: any relatively discrete event in time that is characterized by a frequency, intensity, and severity outside a predictable range, and that disruptsExpand

Postfire responses of lotic ecosystems in Yellowstone National Park, U.S.A.
Wildfire is a major large-scale disturbance affecting terrestrial landscapes and lotic ecosystems in many regions of the world. We examined environmental and biological responses of 20 streams inExpand

Developments in Stream Ecosystem Theory
Four significant areas of thought, (1) the holistic approach, (2) the linkage between streams and their terrestrial setting, (3) material cycling in open systems, and (4) biotic interactions andExpand

Postfire Management on Forested Public Lands of the Western United States
Forest ecosystems in the western United States evolved over many millennia in response to distur- bances such as wildfires. Land use and management practices have altered these ecosystems, however,Expand
