Effects of Elevated and Fluctuating Temperature Regimes on Macroinvertebrate and Fish in Pennsylvania’s Warm Water Streams and Rivers

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This laboratory project investigates macroinvertebrate and fish responses to artificial changes in water temperature. Thermal regimes are warmer than normal and approach or exceed physiological and regulatory limits. Daily temperature…

Evaluating the Seasonal Effects of Short-Term Temperature Change on Macroinvertebrates and Fish in Streams and Rivers

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

We are conducting laboratory studies to test criteria of existing legislation for protecting fish and macroinvertebrates from excessive temperature changes during a 24-hour period in both winter and summer. Funded…
