Landscapes and Riverscapes: The Influence of Land Use on Stream Ecosystems
  • J. Allan
  • Environmental Science
  • 22 November 2004
▪ Abstract Local habitat and biological diversity of streams and rivers are strongly influenced by landform and land use within the surrounding valley at multiple scales. However, empiricalExpand

Landscape influences on stream biotic integrity assessed at multiple spatial scales
The biological integrity of stream ecosystems depends critically on human activities that affect land use/cover along stream margins and possibly throughout the catchment. We evaluated streamExpand

The influence of catchment land use on stream integrity across multiple spatial scales
3. The River Raisin basin historically was a region of oak-savannah and wetlands. It was deforested, drained and converted to farmland during the mid-nineteenth century. Human population reached aExpand

Functional Organization of Stream Fish Assemblages in Relation to Hydrological Variability
Stream fish assmemblage data for 34 sites in Wisconsin and Minnesota were obtained from archived sources and were used in conjunction with long—term hydrological data to test the hypothesis thatExpand

Biodiversity conservation in running waters
In the concerns about biodiversity conservation, fresh waters have received less attention than tropical forests and oceans. However, running waters harbor a diverse panoply of species, habitats, andExpand
