Percent Model Affinity: A New Measure of Macroinvertebrate Community Composition
TLDR
A measure of macroinvertebrate community composition was developed using data from 46 shallow freshwater streams in New York State and found to be closely correlated with the Hilsenhoff Biotic Index (HBI) and the species richness of Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichoptera and reflected water quality changes better than HBI did in instances of non-organic pollution.
Pesticides in surface water runoff in south-eastern New York State, USA: seasonal and stormflow effects on concentrations.
TLDR
Data from the Kisco River indicate that the relation between storm discharge and pesticide concentrations varies among compounds, in part because of variation in seasonal application patterns, and the importance of stormflow sampling throughout the year in assessing pesticide fate and transport in urbanized, developed areas.
Common larvae of chironomidae (Diptera) from New York State streams and rivers with particular reference to the fauna of artificial substrates
TLDR
Taxonomic and biological information is presented for 71 taxa of midge larvae commonly collected from artificial substrate samplers throughout New York State streams, rivers and canals.
The macroinvertebrate fauna of an acid‐stressed headwater stream system in the Adirondack Mountains, New York
TLDR
The absence or low abundance in the more acidic tributaries of the Silver Run system suggests that they arc eliminated as acidification intensifies, and these species therefore may he useful indicators of advancing acidification.
IMPACT SOURCE DETERMINATION WITH BIOMONITORING DATA IN NEW YORK STATE: CONCORDANCE WITH ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Abstract An Impact Source Determination method, used to identify point and nonpoint sources of impacts to stream water quality on the basis of benthic macroinvertebrates, was examined for concordance
Diatom Model Affinity (DMA), a New Index for Water Quality Assessment
A new index, diatom model affinity (DMA) was erected as a reference-based community metric, derived from generic and species composition. DMA provides an assessment of water quality by the
