Dispersal, Boundary Processes, and Trophic-Level Interactions in Streams Adjacent to Beaver Ponds

I. Schlosser performed a long-term study to analyze changes to species density, fish predation, and precipitation over time in beaver ponds and their associated streams. In addition to an experiment that looked at the effects of these temporal changes on invertebrates. Yearly, there were significant variations in the amount of precipitation. The researcher suggests that dispersal is a significant factor in determining fish density and diversity, as well as effects of their predation on invertebrates.
