Abstract We compared the abundance of litter categories (coarse particulate organic matter 1–16 mm, leaves >16 mm, and small woody detritus 16–100 mm) and macroinvertebrate assemblages between natural litter patches in pools and riffles in a headwater stream. Litter patches in pools were formed under conditions of almost no current (<6 cm s−1), but in riffles they were formed under variable current velocities (13–89 cm s−1). Although the abundance of each litter category exhibited seasonal… Expand
