An introduction to the aquatic insects of North America
TLDR
This key has been reproduced from brigham, brigham and book review, factors associated with bluegill nest site selection, and the techniques of water-resources investigations of the united introduction to insects filesmpusblogs.
Ecology and Transmission of Buruli Ulcer Disease: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Traditional and non-traditional methods for indicting the roles of living agents as biologically significant reservoirs and/or vectors of pathogens are discussed, and an intellectual framework for establishing criteria for transmission is suggested.
The use of invertebrate functional groups to characterize ecosystem attributes in selected streams and rivers in south Brazil
An analysis conducted at nine stream/river sites in the Atlantic Forest region in the State of Paraná, Brazil used macroinvertebrate functional feeding group (FFG) assessments to evaluate ecological
NUTRIENT DYNAMICS, BACTERIAL POPULATIONS, AND MOSQUITO PRODUCTIVITY IN TREE HOLE ECOSYSTEMS AND MICROCOSMS'
TLDR
It is concluded that disturbance by a physical factor, stemflow, has a major influence on the interactions of nutrient dynamics, bacterial populations, and mosquito productivity in temperate tree-hole ecosystems.
Detection of Mycobacterium ulcerans in the Environment Predicts Prevalence of Buruli Ulcer in Benin
TLDR
This study provides the first spatial data on the overlap of M. ulcerans in the environment and Buruli ulcer cases in Benin where case data are based on active surveillance and provide the first evidence on M. Ulceran- positive environmental samples in well-defined non-endemic sites.
Distribution of Mycobacterium ulcerans in Buruli Ulcer Endemic and Non-Endemic Aquatic Sites in Ghana
TLDR
Results suggest that M. ulcerans is present in both endemic and non-endemic sites and that variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) profiling can be used to follow chains of transmission from the environment to humans, suggesting that focal demography, along with patterns of human water contact, may play a major role in transmission of Buruli ulcer.
Field and laboratory investigations on the effects of road salt (NaCl) on stream macroinvertebrate communities.
TLDR
It was sediment loading that resulted in partial or complete burial of leaf packs, that affected invertebrates activity and confounded normal leaf pack colonization, and there were no significant differences that could be attributed to road salt between upstream and downstream locations in the diversity and composition of invertebrate functional feeding groups.
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 lower
FILTER-FEEDING ECOLOGY OF AQUATIC INSECTS
TLDR
The major objectives of this article are to review the means by which filter-feeding insects obtain their food and to assess the role of these animals in aquatic ecosystems.
