Stream-Riparian Linkages : Searching for Patterns in Invertebrate Community Structure

By Aaron Devoe, Laura Gaffney and Joseph Weirich


Color poster with text, photographs, charts, and graphs.The riparian zone is the terrestrial habitat bordering a stream. Both aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates are found in riparian food webs and each habitat influences the other and comprise the stream ecosystem (Baxter et al., 2005). Riparian zones are excellent indicators of human impact on stream ecosystems. The objective of this study was to examine emergent aquatic and terrestrial invertebrates to document trends in the abundance and distribution of riparian invertebrates in relation to a stream logjam in Beaver Creek, a sandy-bottomed stream near Fall Creek, WI.University of Wisconsin--Eau Claire Office of Research and Sponsored Programs; National Science Foundation
