Using macroinvertebrate assemblages and multiple stressors to infer urban stream system condition: a case study in the central US

Abstract

Characterizing the impacts of hydrologic alterations, pollutants, and habitat degradation on macroinvertebrate species assemblages is of critical value for managers wishing to categorize stream ecosystem condition. A combination of approaches including trait-based metrics and traditional bioassessments provides greater information, particularly in… (More)
