An assessment of stream conditions and their effects on benthic macroinvertebrate community structure
I examined the effects of environmental variables on benthic macroinvertebrate community structure in four stream catchments in the Upper Genesee Watershed of Allegany County. I proposed that some variables would be more pertinent in the determination of community composition especially those related to the effects of land abandonment.
Thesis completed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Alfred University Honors Program.
