Seasonal comparison of community-level size-spectra in southern coalfield streams of West Virginia (USA)


Inverse scaling relationships between average body mass (M) and density (D) have been reported in many lake and marine ecosystems but are less well documented in lotic systems. We used quantitative samples of benthic macroinvertebrate and fish D to model the D versus M (i.e., D ∞ 1/M) relationship in central Appalachian streams of the eastern USA… (More)
