Drought effects on riparian forests and reorganization of nested stream food webs

Principal Investigators:

Alan P. Covich

Drought intensity and frequency are important ecosystem driving forces. Both climatic changes (such as El Nino events) and societal demands for freshwater resources will likely cause drought impacts to be even more important in the future. An integrative analysis is needed to evaluate spatially specific impacts on stream food webs from drought-altered riparian forests and to determine how stream communities reorganize in response to drought disturbances within a drainage network. This project will bring together forest ecologists, stream ecologists,... more
