-Two headwater streams draining catchments 53 and 54 (C53 and C54, respectively) at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory in western North Carolina were treated with insecticide in 1980 (C53) and 1986-1988 (C54). During recovery periods in both streams, Lepidostoma spp. were abundant, early colonizers. Densities of Lepidostoma in litterbags and benthic samples collected from recovering streams were substantially higher than in untreated streams (pretreatment and reference streams). During treatment… Expand
