The Stream Continuum Concept

the network environment changes continuously and predictably

Abiotic gradients

Flow rate

Light

Water temperature

Water chemistry

Substrate composition

Larger in smaller streams

Biotic gradients

Bacteria

more in slower water

Primary producers

Phytoplankton and periphyton

Macroinvertebrates

Insects to crayfish

Vertebrates

Large rivers have more species
