A field experiment was conducted using ceramic plates as experimental substrates to describe the colonizing pattern of a stream invertebrate community after disturbance, and to ascertain the importance of colonizing ability for succession in a Japanese stream. We employed the simultaneous removal design in which plates were periodically set in place (1, 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 days before sampling) and all plates were sampled on the last day of the experiment, to diminish the influence of seasonal… CONTINUE READING
