Abstract

Total invertebrate generic richness, generic diversity, Ephemeroptera density and richness, collector-gatherer richness, and scraper density and richness were positively correlated to stream pH. Ephemeroptera and Naididae (Oligochaeta) were absent from the acidic sampling site. Enchytraeid oligochaetes and Turbellaria were collected at all sites, but in significantly higher densities at the acidic site. Elmid beetles (Optioservus ovalis, Oulimnius latiusculus, Promoresia tardella), mayflies (Cinygmula, Baetis) and caddisflies (Glossosoma, Apatania, Micrasema) were abundant at the sites where pH was highest and were absent from other sampling sites. -from Authors
