The effects of increased aluminum concentrations and decreased pH upon the larval stages of five caddisflies, two mayflies, a stonefly, and a beetle were tested. These insects were removed from two riffle habitats in southern New Hampshire, placed into artificial streams and subjected to additions of aluminum salts and sulfuric acid for a three-day period. Acute mortality and the drifting behavior over the three-day period were then analyzed using multiple linear regression. Aluminum additions… CONTINUE READING
