about

Stream Ecosystems in a Changing Environmentsynthesizes the current understanding of stream ecosystem ecology, emphasizing nutrient cycling and carbon dynamics, and providing a forward-looking perspective regarding the response of stream ecosystems to environmental change. Each chapter includes a section focusing on anticipated and ongoing dynamics in stream ecosystems in a changing environment, along with hypotheses regarding controls on stream ecosystem functioning. The book, with its innovative sections, provides a bridge between papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and the findings of researchers in new areas of study.



  • Presents a forward-looking perspective regarding the response of stream ecosystems to environmental change
  • Provides a synthesis of the latest findings on stream ecosystems ecology in one concise volume
  • Includes thought exercises and discussion activities throughout, providing valuable tools for learning
  • Offers conceptual models and hypotheses to stimulate conversation and advance research

About The Author

Jeremy B. Jones, Jr. studies land-water interactions, how processes occurring in terrestrial ecosystems impacts the movement of carbon and nutrients into streams, and how nutrients are used within stream ecosystems. His research has a particular focus in northern environments where climate change is thawing permafrost resulting in the ...
