Across-reach consistency in macroinvertebrate distributions among litter patch types in Japanese headwater streams

Abstract

Different types of litter patches with contrasting macroinvertebrate assemblages have been observed within a stream reach. This study examined whether distributions of macroinvertebrates among three litter patch types (riffle, middle, edge) were consistent between reaches with different channel characteristics in headwater streams in central Japan.
