Forested headwater streams rely on their riparian areas for temperature regulation, woody debris inputs, and sediment retention. These products and services may be altered by disturbances such as timber harvest, windthrow, or development. This study investigated the effects of riparian forest disturbance by removing trees using 50 and 90% basal area(More)
The objective of this study was to establish the relationships between bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) measures (resistance and reactance) and temperature and to determine if corrections improve BIA models for brook trout Salvelinus fontinalis when used over a wide range of temperatures. Both resistance and reactance significantly decreased as(More)
Terrestrial invertebrates (TIs) are an important food source for stream salmonids, especially in low-productivity headwater streams. Studies have shown that TIs can account for >50% of a salmonid’s summer diet, and the consumption of larger TIs is often the difference between feeding above or below maintenance ration. Riparian disturbance is assumed to(More)
