Summary

The objective of this study was to assess the comparative influence of multiple stressors on benthic diatoms at 98 sites that spanned a range of stressors that occurred in an agricultural dominated region in the upper Midwest, USA. The primary stressors of interest included: nutrients, herbicides and fungicides, sediment, and streamflow; though the influence of physical habitat was incorporated in the assessment. The study area covered portions of 12 states (600,000 km2), with agriculture the dominate land use. The 98 sites used in this study consisted of 49 randomly selected EPA National Rivers and Streams Assessment sites combined with 49 targeted USGS sites. Thirty-seven of the targeted sites were selected to fill in the agricultural [...]
