Macroinvertebrates in stream systems

  1. Oct 2, 2015 #1
    Hey pf! Learning about macroinvertebrates and their relation to stream systems, and I am trying to understand what stream factors affect their distribution and diversity! I understand that flow rate, and substrate for example have an affect, but why exactly flow rate affects macro's is still a mystery to me! Are there any entomologists in the house?
