Aquatic Macroinvertebrates: Biological Indicators of Stream Health
5/12/2015 (new)

 UK Authors: Carmen Agouridis, Blake Newton,
 Departments: Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, Entomology
 Series: Interdepartmental (ID series)

Streams are an important part of the landscape. Streams transport water, sediment and energy; provide habitat for aquatic life and support terrestrial life; provide a place for recreation; and in many cases serve as a water supply. The health of streams---or their ability to perform these important functions---is dependent on the conditions of the watersheds which they drain. Changes in land use within a watershed can affect a stream's health.
