A habitat matrix conceptual model for stream periphyton
In this paper we suggest a conceptual model for the evaluation of periphyton communities in unshaded temperate streams based on the primary habitat variables of flood disturbance, nutrient resource…

Habitat created by shells was the most important cause for zebra mussel-generated increases in total macroinvertebrate biomass and densities of Hydridae, Dugesia tigrina (Turbellaria), Physella sp.

Algal Periphyton Growth on Nutrient‐Diffusing Substrates: An in situ Bioassay
The low ambient concentrations of both N and P, together with results of the periphyton bioassay, indicate that the two nutrients may jointly limit overall growth, and that the form of growth limitation differs by species within the perIPhyton community.

In-situ, nutrient amendment experiments (nutrient-diffusing substrata, NDS) were conducted in 12 New Zealand gravel-bed streams to investigate seasonality of biomass accrual and nutrient limitation…
Resource stress alters hydrological disturbance effects in a stream periphyton community
Scouring reduces stream periphyton biomass during floods, and levels of light and nutrient resource supply can influence growth and community physiology between floods. We hypothesised that for a…
