Development and application of a macroinvertebrate functional-group approach in the bioassessment of remnant river oxbows in southwest Florida
Invertebrate richness, density, mass, and functional-group analyses were used as surrogates for ecosystem attributes to evaluate conditions of 10 remnant oxbows along the channelized lowerExpand

Benthic Invertebrate Community Responses to Round Goby (Neogobius melanostomus) and Zebra Mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) Invasion in Southern Lake Michigan
The round goby (Neogobius melanostomus Pallas), a fish native to eastern Europe, recently has become established in southwestern Lake Michigan. Because round gobies prey on zebra mussels (DreissenaExpand

Diel interactions between prey behaviour and feeding in an invasive fish, the round goby, in a North American river
SUMMARY 1. We studied the diet of the invasive round goby (Neogobius melanostomus) on a diel basis in the Flint River, a warmwater stream in Michigan, U.S.A. Diet and available prey samples wereExpand

Secondary production of Chironomidae (Diptera) in a north temperate stream
SUMMARY 1. Secondary production of chironomids (Diptera: Chironomidae) in a third-order northern Indiana stream was estimated using species-specific, and in most cases cohort-specific, life-historyExpand

Trophic Relationships of Macroinvertebrates
Abstract Aquatic insects around the world exhibit similar morphologies and behaviors even though they are in very different taxonomic groups. This is the basis for the functional feeding group (FFG)Expand

Investigating the effect of marine-derived nutrients from spawning salmon on macroinvertebrate secondary production in southeast Alaskan streams
Abstract It is generally accepted that juvenile salmonid production is linked, via bottom-up pathways, to marine-derived nutrient (MDN) inputs from spawning salmon. Many studies have used standingExpand

Polychlorinated Naphthalenes and Polychlorinated Biphenyls in Benthic Organisms of a Great Lakes Food Chain
Invasion of zebra mussels, Dreissena polymorpha, and round gobies, Neogobius melanostomus, into the Great Lakes has altered the food web structure and thereby the pathways of toxic contaminants suchExpand

Prey Preferences of Eurasian Ruffe and Yellow Perch: Comparison of Laboratory Results with Composition of Great Lakes Benthos
The consumption of benthic macroinvertebrates by ruffe (Gymnocephalus cernuus) and yellow perch (Perca flavescens), two potential competitors in the Great Lakes, was investigated. LaboratoryExpand

The role of Chironomidae in energy flow of a lotic ecosystem
Chironomid secondary production was estimated on a species-specific basis for 14 dominant taxa in a third-order woodland stream. Results from this study were used to provide an expalanation for theExpand
