The macrobenthos of Cane Creek, in the Piedmont Plateau of North Carolina, have been sampled by several investigators. This information was combined to generate a list of invertebrate taxa, which could be used as an environmental assessment tool. Average taxa richness and diversity shows little variability across a wide range of North Carolina streams.
The aquatic macroinvertebrates of the Upper French Broad River were sampled over a two-year period beginning in May 1977. The faunas are compared to those of other rivers and streams of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Information is provided on taxa richness and abundance, temporal and spatial changes in the benthic macroinvertebrate communities.
