Study Unit Description Surface Water Bed Sediment and Tissue Aquatic Ecology Ground Water NAWQA Personnel Liaison Committee Publications The NAWQA study design for surface water focuses on water-quality conditions in streams using three interrelated components: water column studies, bed-sediment and tissue studies, and ecological studies. Ecological studies are an integral part of the approach used by NAWQA to assess surface-water quality. The ecological studies are designed to assess the relations among physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of streams. Aquatic biological communities were surveyed at all three sites in the fixed-site network for water-column studies. These surveys were done along a delineated stream reach and include a habitat assessment of the site and a survey of the fish, algal, and benthic invertebrate communities. Six additional sites were surveyed to provide greater spatial coverage and to assess whether the biological communities at fixed sites are representative of streams throughout the study unit. Streamflow and water-quality data also were collected at the time of the ecological surveys. A description of each site and available data can be found by selecting the site number on the map or stream name listed in the table below.

The combination of these methods produces a comprehensive picture which is at the cutting edge of methodology. Currently, there are three graduate students and two undegraduates working in the laboratory. Normally, funding for students is based on a combination of graduate student assistantships and extra funding from the grant/contract of the advisor. The Department of Botany at the University of Guelph sets as its standard funding rate $15,600 (subject to change) from which tuition, fees and taxes are taken.

Extractions: Blackwell Publishing 1991 Paperback 280pp, 137 illus ISBN 0-632-02983-8 The new edition concentrates heavily on the fundamental features common to all aquatic systems, both marine and freshwater. This unique synthesis allows for the discussion of ecological processes comparatively, across environments. A general introduction is followed by discussion of various types of aquatic ecosystem - open waters, coastal zones, benthos, and the aquatic ecosystem as a whole. This is followed by an important new chapter on aquatic ecosystems and global ecology. Later chapters consider the individuals and communities in aquatic ecosystems and the habitat types that are peculiar to them. To find similar publications, click on a keyword below:
Extractions: The Fisheries Management and Ecology Research Group of the Auburn University Department of Fisheries and Allied Aquacultures is currently involved in research investigating community and population ecology and management of aquatic organisms in a variety of habitats, ranging from ponds and reservoirs to streams and rivers. Currently-funded projects include investigations of larval fish zooplankton interaction in Alabama reservoirs, studies of recruitment of freshwater fishes studies of paddlefish and catfish population biology, work with threatened and endangered stream fishes and invertebrates, and experimental work with forage fish-sport fish interactions.

Extractions: ESI has the equipment and the staff to assess and analyze water samples and determine respective water quality of streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands and how different water quality metrics may affect distribution, diversity, and abundance of aquatic organisms. ESI has collected and field-tested water samples for aquatic biological assessments and other aquatics and fisheries studies in support of Environmental Assessments and NEPA-related documents. ESI staff have either conducted or assisted with aquatic macroinvertebrate surveys on Department of Transportation and coal mining projects. These projects required assessment of construction related impacts on aquatic life, including development of impact minimization measures where required. ESI staff are currently inventorying the freshwater mussel communities in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park as volunteer malacologists for the All Taxa Biological Inventory (ATBI). ESI has also implemented the EPAs Rapid Bioassessment Protocol (RBP) to field sample aquatic macroinvertebrates for mined land reclamation projects. Our biologists have conducted fish surveys (i.e., backpack electro-fisher or snorkeling), prepared and implemented sampling methodology, and developed disturbance monitoring plans for federally threatened fish species. ESI recently completed several of these types of projects for proposed surface mine related disturbances that could take place within specific drainages. Monitoring involved data collection and analysis for water quality, temperature, flow, substrate, scour and deposition, aquatic macroinvertebrate communities, and fish populations.

Water Plants 101 A basic Introduction to the physiology and ecology of aquatic plants http://www.hallman.org/plant/huebert.html
Extractions: A basic Introduction to the physiology and ecology of aquatic plants By Dave Huebert The low diffusivity of CO2 in water, the relatively thick unstirred layer and the high CO2 concentration needed to saturate photosynthesis have prompted one scientist to state, "For freshwater submerged aquatic macrophyte plants, the naturally occurring DIC levels impose a major limitation on photosynthesis ... The DIC limitations on aquatic macrophytes and its corollary, the need to conserve carbon, are becoming increasingly apparent as important ecological features of aquatic environments (George Bowes, 'Inorganic Carbon Uptake by Aquatic Photosynthetic Organisms, 1985)." Aquatic plants have adapted to CO2 limitation in several ways. They have thin, often dissected leaves. This increases the surface to volume ratio and decreases the thickness of the unstirred layer. They have extensive air channels, called aerenchyma, that allow gases to move freely throughout the plants. This allows respired CO2 to be trapped inside the plant and in some species even allows CO2 from the sediment to diffuse into the leaves. Finally, many species of aquatic plants are able to photosynthesize using bicarbonate as well as CO2. This is important, since at pH values between 6.4 and 10.4 the majority of DIC in freshwater exists in the form of bicarbonate. For the aquarist, the supply of CO2 can be augmented in two ways. Both methods work by increasing the rate of diffusion of CO2 into the plants. First, the rate of water movement in the aquarium can be increased. This will decrease the thickness of the boundary layer and ensure that CO2 levels are at air equilibrium. This method is inexpensive, easy to implement and will produce excellent growth of aquatic plants under most conditions. Secondly, CO2 can be injected into the aquarium. This method can be expensive, and if done improperly, can be lethal to fish. This latter method is only essential, however, if there is a significant daily pH fluctuation in the aquarium, or if the species of plants being cultured are completely unable to use bicarbonate (such as Cabomba sp.).
