Community organization in streams: the importance of species interactions, physical factors, and chance

  title={Community organization in streams: the importance of species interactions, physical factors, and chance},
  author={David D. Hart},
Experimental studies were used to examine the mechanisms governing the distribution and abundance of two major patch types in unshaded reaches of Augusta Creek, Michigan (USA). One patch type is dominated by Cladophora glomerata, a macroalga potentially able to monopolize space, whereas the other type is comprised of a low-growing, epilithic microalgal lawn inhabited by several species of sessile grazers (especially the caddisflies Leucotrichia pictipes and Psychomyia flavida). Cladophora… CONTINUE READING
