Diurnal Changes in a Stream Ecosystem: An Energy and Nutrient Budget Approach
Numerous physical, chemical, and biological processes interact to produce a stream ecosystem. Small streams tend to reflect the conditions of the drainage area and usually are chemically and physically dynamic and biologically rich.
