The effects of riparian disturbance on forested stream ecology
This presentation summarizes multiple research projects investigating how riparian tree removal and debris additions affect streams. In particular, I will discuss how disturbance affects stream temperature, periphyton biomass, sedimentation, morphology, aquatic invertebrate communities, terrestrial invertebrate inputs, and brook trout growth. This research is especially relevant for those trying to understand how development, resource extraction, and severe weather events may affect streams.
