The composition of the stonefly fauna, the growth phases of all the species and the food composition of the predatory species (Fam. Perlodidae) were studies in a lake outlet biotope at Valdresflya in the Jotunheimen mountains, in central southern Norway. The biotope, in a region with a subarctic or tundra macro-climate, is ice-covered from early October to late June. Five differen stonefly species were studied: Arcynopteryx compacta, o-Diura nanseni, hoperla obscura, Capnia atra and Amphinemura… Expand
The diet of two species of Isoperla (Plecoptera: Perlodidae) in relation to season, site, and sympatry
TLDR
It is suggested that I. grammatica, which ingests a much wider size range of prey might choose prey of optimal sizes more readily than the more synchronously developing I. difformis, which switched to a temporarily strong utilization of algae in spring. Expand
Zoogeographical studies on Fennoscandian stoneflies (Plecoptera)
TLDR
In Fennoscandia the highest number of different stonefly species have been recorded from areas north of the polar circle and in the continental parts of the boreal and subalpine vegetation belts, while in Norway the lowest number have beenrecorded from the coastal areas and on the islands. Expand
Egg development, nymphal growth and life cycle strategies in Plecoptera
Interspecific and intraspecific differences in egg development, nymphal growth and the life cycles of Fennoscandian stoneflies are examined in relation to zoogeographical aspects and evolutionaryExpand
Life history, production and coexistence of two leptophlebiid mayflies in three sites along a Northern Spain stream
TLDR
The life history and temporal dynamics in density, biomass, growth rate and secondary production of Habrophlebia lauta and Habroleptoides confusa were studied in 3 sites along the Agu era stream in northern Spain, suggesting that irrespective of their abundance, interspecific competi- tion between Hb. Expand
Diet of Dinocras cephalotes and perla bipunctata (Plecoptera, Perlidae) in a South‐West Irish stream
TLDR
Although there were some differences in the composition of the diet amongst three age classes of D. cephalotes there was still considerable overlap between them, and an expansion in the size range of mayfly prey was also evident with increase in predator age. Expand
Diapause and quiescence in eggs of Systellognatha stonefly species (Plecoptera) occuring in alpine areas of Norway
TLDR
Eggs of the stoneflies Diura bicaudata and Arcynopteryx compacta and Dinocras cephalotes not recorded above the sub-alpine, reacted differently to the same temperatures, enabling the species to survive outside its normal distribution area. Expand
Stoneflies (Plecoptera) of the Yukon
Intensified collection efforts over the past two decades have increased the known Yukon stonefly fauna almost fourfold, from 19 to the current 71 species, representing 8 families and 33 genera. WeExpand
Diapause termination in eggs of the stonefly Arcynopteryx compacta (McLachland) in relation to dehydration and cold hardiness
TLDR
Eggs remained cold hardy at 3°C as long as the postdiapause development was prevented during the thermally controlled quiescence, and the loss of cold hardiness could not be related to termination of diapause per se. Expand
Increased cold hardiness in eggs of Arcynopteryx compacta (Plecoptera) by dehydration
TLDR
The presence of thermal hysteresis antifreezes may stabilize their supercooled state when enclosed by ice during overwintering, and diapause completion is enhanced both by temperature and time during enclosure in ice. Expand
Arcynopteryx Compacta (Plecoptera: Perlodidae), A Holarctic Stonefly Confirmed From Lake Superior, With a Review and First Checklist of the Stoneflies of Michigan
TLDR
A checklist of stoneflies of Michigan is provided, reporting 58 species plusa list of an additional 19 species that are likely to occur in the state. Expand

FEEDING HABITS AND PREY CONSUMPTION OF THREE SETIPALPIAN STONEFLIES (PLECOPTERA) IN A MOUNTAIN STREAM
TLDR
The feeding ecology of predaceous stoneflies was investigated over 18 mo in Cement Creek, Colorado, USA, and found that the availability of prey depends upon the abundance of the vulnerable size class, which in turn is affected by the juxtaposition of predator and prey life cycles. Expand
The life histories, trophic relations and production of Stenoperla prasina (Plecoptera) and Deleatidium sp. (Ephemeroptera) in a New Zealand river
TLDR
The life history, feeding relations and production of the stonefly Stenoperla prasina were studied for 16 months in the Selwyn River, South Island, New Zealand, finding larvae of all sizes were present in all months. Expand
The lake ecosystem of Ovre Heimdalsvatn
TLDR
On account of the long period of ice cover and the rapid rise in temperature after ice break, many organisms (both planktonic and benthic) showed synchronous development. Expand
The Food Habits of Stoneflies (Plecoptera) in the Upper Gunnison River, Colorado
TLDR
Horn's Coefficient of Dietary Overlap showed significance among all predator species for major food categories, but subtle mechanisms such as prey species-and size-selectivity and temporal succession provided sufficient partitioning of the abundant food resources to allow for coexistence. Expand
Diel food habits of two species of setipalpian stoneflies (Plecoptera) in tributaries of the Clearwater River, Idaho
TLDR
No single prey taxon was consistently the principal component in the diet of either stonefly species during all 6-h sampling intervals and hydropsychids were the major food of H. pacifica in Mission Creek whereas chironomid larvae were the chief prey of S. parallela in Mission creek. Expand
The Influence of Temperature on Nymphal Growth Rates in Mountain Stoneflies (Plecoptera)
TLDR
There was considerable variation in growth rate throughout the year, there being a strong positive correlation (P < .001) and a monotonically increasing relationship between specific growth rate and mean water temperature. Expand
Trophic Relations of Acroneuria (Calineuria) californica (plecoptera: Perlidae) in a Sierra Foothill Stream
TLDR
It is suggested that large populations of A. californica nymphs can reduce trout production in the field as well as in the laboratory because of their significant impact on the dynamics of its benthic prey. Expand
The Plecoptera of Øvre Heimdalsvatn
TLDR
During the winter N avicularis occurred in large numbers on soft bottom at nearly all depths while D. bicaudata was only recorded on stony substratum in shallow water and was therefore more susceptible to predation and was recorded in trout stomachs during most of the year. Expand

Prey Selection by a Setipalpian Stonefly Nymph, Acroneuria (Calineuria) Californica Banks (Plecoptera:Perildae)
