Streams. Their Ecology and Life PDF

J-David Allan

Streams are important habitats and are complicated because so many different kinds of animals and plants live in or near them. This book, in four parts, explains stream ecology to the general reader. The first part describes the ecological processes and interactions that take place in streams and rivers. The dynamic aspects of streams, including the abiotic factors, energy sources, and food webs, are defined, described, and reviewed. The second part of the book is a simplified classification of streams and rivers that relies on the size of the river as well as on the geographic location of rivers. The third part of the book is a description of the animals and plants commonly in and along the streams and rivers mostly of North America. The last chapter of the book is devoted to the various threats to Americas rivers and streams.

Life‐history traits of Brown Trout vary with the size … 1 . Brown Trout Salmo trutta L. life‐history traits were studied in 17 coastal streams with mean annual water discharges ≤1 m 3 s −1, and with anadromous and freshwater resident trout present in all streams.. 2 . Mean smolt length and age were positively correlated with mean annual water discharge and latitude. The variation (CV) in smolt length and age was negatively correlated with

Some insects time their life events based on when floods and droughts occur. For example, some mayflies synchronize when they emerge as flying adults with when snowmelt flooding usually occurs in Colorado streams. Other insects do not have a flying stage and spend their entire life cycle in the river.
