Freshwater biomonitoring and benthic macroinvertebrates.
Introduction to freshwater biomonitoring and benthic macroinvertebrates-- D. M. Rosenberg and V. H. Resh A history of biological monitoring using benthic macroinvertebrates-- J. Cairns, Jr. and J. R.Expand
Streams in Mediterranean Climate Regions: Abiotic Influences and Biotic Responses to Predictable Seasonal Events
▪ Abstract Streams in mediterranean-climate regions (areas surrounding the Mediterranean Sea, parts of western North America, parts of west and south Australia, southwestern South Africa and parts ofExpand
The Role of Disturbance in Stream Ecology
We define disturbance in stream ecosystems to be: any relatively discrete event in time that is characterized by a frequency, intensity, and severity outside a predictable range, and that disruptsExpand
The Reference Condition: A Comparison of Multimetric and Multivariate Approaches to Assess Water-Quality Impairment Using Benthic Macroinvertebrates
Traditional methods of establishing control sites in field-oriented biomonitoring studies of water quality are limited. The reference-condition approach offers a powerful alternative because sitesExpand
Developments in aquatic insect biomonitoring: a comparative analysis of recent approaches.
Aquatic insects and other benthic invertebrates are the most widely used organisms in freshwater biomonitoring of human impact. Because of the high monetary investment in freshwater management,Expand
Hydraulic Stream Ecology: Observed Patterns and Potential Applications
Although it is well known that metabolism, feeding, and behaviour of lotic organisms is influenced by various flow characteristics, hydraulic variables usually are not accurately measured in loticExpand
Author Sequence and Credit for Contributions in Multiauthored Publications
A transparent, simple, and straightforward approach that is free from any arbitrary rank valuation is required to estimate the credit associated with the sequence of authors' names on multiauthoredExpand

Why do people name things? Would we get the same information content if we refer to a particular structure as a black oak tree, an oak tree, a tree, a plant, a living object, or just as a thing?Expand

A survey of methods used by US state agencies for collecting and processing benthic macroinvertebrate samples from streams was conducted by questionnaire; 90 responses were received and used toExpand
Benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages and macrohabitat connectivity in Mediterranean-climate streams of northern California
Abstract Drought leads to a loss of longitudinal and lateral hydrologic connectivity, which causes direct or indirect changes in stream ecosystem properties. Changes in macrohabitat availability fromExpand
