Quantifying Macroinvertebrate Responses to InStream Habitat Restoration : Applications of Meta-Analysis to River Restoration

  title={Quantifying Macroinvertebrate Responses to InStream Habitat Restoration : Applications of Meta-Analysis to River Restoration},
  author={Scott W. Miller and Phaedra Budy and J. Christian Schmidt},
The assumption that restoring physical habitat heterogeneity will increase biodiversity underlies many river restoration projects, despite few tests of the hypothesis. With over 6,000 in-stream habitat enhancement projects implemented in the last decade at a cost exceeding $1 billion, there is a clear need to assess the consistency of responses, as well as factors explaining project performance. We adopted an alternative approach to individual case-studies by applying meta-analysis to quantify… CONTINUE READING
