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. These…
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 of…

It is shown that corn byproducts, such as pollen and detritus, enter headwater streams and are subject to storage, consumption, and transport to downstream water bodies.
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 ecology…
Neotropical tadpoles influence stream benthos: evidence for the ecological consequences of decline in amphibian populations
Tadpoles affect the abundance and diversity of basal resources and other primary consumers, and thus influence food web dynamics and energy flow in these tropical streams, and influence the structure and function of neotropical stream ecosystems.

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 Hydrologic…
The effects of amphibian population declines on the structure and function of Neotropical stream ecosystems
Evidence to date suggests that amphibian declines will have large-scale and lasting ecosystem-level effects, including changes in algal composition, which will likely be greatest in neotropical highland streams.
Biotic Indices and Stream Ecosystem Processes: Results from an Experimental Study
The data strongly support the inclusion of the EPT and NCBI indices in these southern Appalachian headwater streams as indicators of both degradation and recovery of stream ecosystem processes from chemical-induced disturbance.
Occurrence of maize detritus and a transgenic insecticidal protein (Cry1Ab) within the stream network of an agricultural landscape

Maize detritus is common in low-gradient stream channels in northwestern Indiana, and Cry1Ab proteins persist in maize leaves and can be measured in the water column even 6 mo after harvest, suggesting that maize detritu, and associated Cry1 Ab proteins, are widely distributed and persistent in the headwater streams of a Corn Belt landscape.
