Trends in Temperature, Secchi Depth, and Dissolved Oxygen Depletion Rates in the Central Basin of Lake Erie, 1983–2002
We examined temperature trends in a 20-year set of monitoring records collected at multiple deep-water stations in the central basin of Lake Erie. Data collected were statistically correctedExpand

The Distribution and Abundance of Dreissena Species (Dreissenidae) in Lake Erie, 2002
Abstract A lake-wide benthic survey of Lake Erie during summer 2002 indicated that Dreissena bugensis is the dominant dreissenid in Lake Erie, especially in the east basin where this species wasExpand

FUZZY COGNITIVE MAPPING AS A TOOL TO DEFINE MANAGEMENT OBJECTIVES FOR COMPLEX ECOSYSTEMS
TLDR
We present the steps involved in constructing an FCM of an ecosystem, interpreting FCM output using multivariate statistics, and portraying the information in an easily communicated fashion. Expand

Microhabitat selection by the invasive amphipod Echinogammarus ischnus and native Gammarus fasciatus in laboratory experiments and in Lake Erie
SUMMARY 1. The amphipod Echinogammarus ischnus was first reported in the Laurentian Great Lakes during 1995. However, analysis of archived samples revealed the presence of the species from westernExpand

Inland dispersal of adult aquatic insects
1. Adult caddisflies (Trichoptera) and mayflies (Ephemeroptera) were light-trapped on summer evenings along the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair, near Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Light traps wereExpand

Effects of chronic hypoxia and reduced temperature on survival and growth of burrowing mayflies, (Hexagenia limbata) (Ephemeroptera: Ephemeridae)
Hexagenia nymphs are sensitive to hypoxia, and their abundance has been proposed as an ecosystem indicator for assessing the recovery from eutrophication of shallow, mesotrophic lakes. Acute oxygenExpand

Testing a Fish Index of Biotic Integrity for Responses to Different Stressors in Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands
ABSTRACT Fish community composition often varies across ecoregions and hydrogeomorphic types within ecoregions. We evaluated two indices of biotic integrity (IBIs) developed for fish in Great LakesExpand

Methods for Generating Multi-scale Watershed Delineations for Indicator Development in Great Lake Coastal Ecosystems
ABSTRACT Watersheds represent spatially explicit areas within which terrestrial stressors can be quantified and linked to measures of aquatic ecosystem condition. We delineated thousands of GreatExpand

Teratogenic and genotoxic responses of larval Chironomus salinarius group (diptera: Chironomidae) to contaminated sediment
Chironomids are important indicators of the effects of sediment-bound contaminants. However, cause–effect relationships between contaminant exposure and stress-related indicators other than growthExpand
