Life on the Edge: The Ecology of Great Plains Prairie Streams
Abstract Great Plains streams are highly endangered and can serve as model systems for studying disturbance ecology and related issues of resistance and resilience in temperate freshwaters. TheseExpand
What do tadpoles really eat? Assessing the trophic status of an understudied and imperiled group of consumers in freshwater habitats
Summary 1. Understanding the trophic status of consumers in freshwater habitats is central to understanding their ecological roles and significance. Tadpoles are a diverse and abundant component ofExpand
Toxins in transgenic crop byproducts may affect headwater stream ecosystems
Corn (Zea mays L.) that has been genetically engineered to produce the Cry1Ab protein (Bt corn) is resistant to lepidopteran pests. Bt corn is widely planted in the midwestern United States, oftenExpand
Neotropical tadpoles influence stream benthos: evidence for the ecological consequences of decline in amphibian populations
SUMMARY 1. Few studies have assessed the role of tadpoles in tropical streams, although they are often abundant and conspicuous components of these systems. Moreover, amphibian populations areExpand
Long-Term Dynamics of Coarse Particulate Organic Matter in Three Appalachian Mountain Streams
Export of coarse particulate organic matter (CPOM) from three headwater streams was studied continuously over a period of 8 (one stream) to 9.5 years (two streams) at the Coweeta HydrologicExpand
Freshwater Ecology: Concepts and Environmental Applications of Limnology
The Second Edition of "Freshwater Ecology" is broad, up-to-date treatment of everything from the basic chemical and physical properties of water to advanced unifying concepts of the community ecologyExpand

The effects of amphibian population declines on the structure and function of Neotropical stream ecosystems
Amphibians can be important consumers in both aquatic and terrestrial habitats and may represent an important energetic link between the two, particularly in the tropics, where amphibian speciesExpand
Energy flow and subsidies associated with the complex life cycle of ambystomatid salamanders in ponds and adjacent forest in southern Illinois
Breeding adults and metamorphosing larval amphibians transfer energy between freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems during seasonal migrations and emergences, although rarely has this been quantified.Expand
Biotic Indices and Stream Ecosystem Processes: Results from an Experimental Study
We investigated the ability of the North Carolina Biotic Index (NCBI) and the Ephemeroptera + Plecoptera + Trichoptera (EPT) index to track an experimental ma- nipulation of the invertebrateExpand
