Stream ecologists have devised numerous methods for evaluating the health and function of streams. This volume provides a comprehensive series of field and laboratory protocols in stream ecology. The scope covers five areas of stream ecology: physical stream ecology, material storage and transport, stream biota, community interactions, and ecosystem processes. The book provides readers with detailed instructions and background in conducting practical stream measurements and analyses. Useful as a textbook for a course in stream ecology, this work is also a reference for those who are not stream ecologists, but are required to evaluate the status of streams. It includes detailed instructions, illustrations, formulae and data sheets for conducting stream ecology, and provides a variety of exercises in each chapter to accommodate the novice to the seasoned scientist.
