Landscape influences on stream biotic integrity assessed at multiple spatial scales

  title={Landscape influences on stream biotic integrity assessed at multiple spatial scales},
  author={Nancy E. Roth and James D Allan and Donna Lynne Erickson},
  journal={Landscape Ecology},
The biological integrity of stream ecosystems depends critically on human activities that affect land use/cover along stream margins and possibly throughout the catchment. We evaluated stream condition using an Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) and a habitat index (HI), and compared these measures to landscape and riparian conditions assessed at different spatial scales in a largely agricultural Midwestern watershed. Our goal was to determine whether land use/cover was an effective predictor of… CONTINUE READING
