Restoring Flood Attenuation and Ecological Resiliency in the Mid-Atlantic Piedmont

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

For this project, scientists and watershed restoration professionals restore one headwater basin to reduce flooding downstream, improve water quality, and increase stream-ecosystem resilience so that it will once again support…

Parthenogenesis (Virgin Reproduction), Hybridization, and Life History Plasticity in Mayflies

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Scientists are studying a number of mayfly species in White Clay Creek as well as in streams throughout eastern North America to better understand virgin reproduction and hybridization in mayflies,…

Macroinvertebrate Monitoring

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

These projects use aquatic macroinvertebrates such as mayflies, stoneflies, and caddisflies to provide assessments of current water quality in these streams and rivers.

Assessment of Environmental Conditions in Bennetts Run at Kendal-Crosslands Based on Physical, Chemical, Macroinvertebrate, and Fish Monitoring

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

Bennetts Run is a small tributary to Brandywine Creek in southern Chester County, Pennsylvania, including portions of Kendal-Crosslands Communities and Longwood Gardens. This study focuses on more upstream segments, using water…

Brandywine Stream Stewards: Community Action in Support of Healthy Waters

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

The Stream Stewards Program, centered on 1,100 acres of open space in the First State National Historical Park, engages the community and targets youth from Wilmington in a sustainable citizen-science…

Integration of Physiological, Life-History, and Macro-Ecological Approaches for Understanding Thermal Limitation in Aquatic Insects: Implications for Freshwater Biodiversity in a Warming World

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

In this project, we test the hypothesis that temperature limits the distributions of aquatic insects through its effect on resource allocation, and that warming decreases reproduction by shunting energy away…

Assessment of Environmental Conditions in Streams of the Runnymede Sanctuary Based on Physical, Chemical, and Macroinvertebrate Monitoring

1024 681 Stroud Water Research Center

The 1,670-acre Runnymede Sanctuary was created to preserve the extensive natural, historic, and scenic resources harbored by the property and to facilitate appropriate study and use of those resources. Its forests,…

Learning to See, Seeing to Learning

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stroud Center educators in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University created and implemented a national survey of macroinvertebrate trainers and training programs. Education and entomology staff helped decide which 150 macroinvertebrates…

North American Macroinvertebrate Taxonomic Certification Program

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This program coordinates and executes the taxonomic certification program for the Society for Freshwater Science, conducting family- and genus-level tests throughout the year. Funded by: Society for Freshwater Science Principal…

Long-Term Research in Environmental Biology (LTREB): Trajectory for the Recovery of Stream Ecosystem Structure and Function During Reforestation

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stream restoration in the United States is a multibillion-dollar industry. Yet long-term monitoring of its effectiveness is virtually nonexistent. Stroud Center scientists are studying restoration within White Clay Creek that…
