Many benthologists find it difficult to stay abreast of research progress in tropical streams and rivers. First, research papers are relatively rare. Second, the literature is widely scattered, not in the standard journals for stream research, but also in journals specializing in tropical research and in unpublished reports and grey literature with only local or regional distributions. We organized this group of papers in an effort to provide readers with a variety of articles on tropical stream research in a single issue of J-NABS.
