Stream Research in the LTER Network
1993. PDF and Hard-copy.
This report describes stream research (physical, chemical and biological characteristics) as was conducted at 12 sites in the LTER Network in 1993.
While the conceptual framework guiding research differs widely across sites, common themes are considered, including geomorphologic and riparian controls of ecosystem function and response to and recovery from disturbance.
Two different approaches to stream research are taken: one in which an interest in factors controlling stream ecosystem function guides the research (nine sites), and one in which a view of streams as pathways for export is the focus (three sites).
