The annual variability in mayflies (Ephemeroptera), fingernail clams (Sphaeriidae), and midges (Chironomidae) in six study areas of the Upper Mississippi River System from 1992 to 1995 was examined. Spatial distribution is also discussed for these organisms along with the Asiatic clam (Corbicula fluminea) and the zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha). Sample allocation within each reach was based on a stratified random design where strata were aquatic areas. No significant linear trends across years were found in estimated reachwide mean number of organisms. However, the overall test for differences in intercepts among study areas was statistically significant (P < 0.05) for mayflies, fingernail clams, and midges....

In 1992, macroinvertebrate sampling was initiated in Pools 4, 8, 13, 26, the Open River reach of the Mississippi River, and La Grange Pool of the Illinois River as part of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program. Longterm monitoring is needed to detect population trends and local changes in aquatic ecosystems. Mayflies (Ephemeroptera), fingernail clams (Sphaeriidae), and the exotic Corbicula species were selected for monitoring. Midges (Chironomidae) were added to the sampling design in 1993 and zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) were added in 1995. Mayflies, fingernail clams, and midges, members of the soft-substrate community, were chosen because they play an important ecological role in the Upper Mississippi...

As part of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) macroinvertebrate component, historical sites (sites where benthic samples were previously collected by other researchers) were sampled in 1992 through 1998. Historical data on densities of the taxa were obtained from published literature and compared to data collected by the LTRMP. Temporal trends and spatial distribution in the abundance of mayflies (Ephemeroptera) and fingernail clams (Sphaeriidae) were examined in Navigation Pools 4, 8, 13, 26, and the Open River reach of the Mississippi River and La Grange Pool of the Illinois River.

In 1992, as part of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program, macroinvertebrate sampling was initiated in Pools 4, 8, 13, 26, and the open river reach of the Mississippi River, and La Grange Pool of the Illinois River. Long-term monitoring is needed to detect population trends and detect local changes in aquatic ecosystems. Mayflies (Ephemeridae), fingernail clams (Sphaeriidae), and the exotic Corbicula species were selected for monitoring. These three members of the soft-substrate community were chosen because they play an important ecological role in the Upper Mississippi River System. Sampling was based on a stratified random design and was conducted at approximately 125 sites per study area. Mean densities...

The Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP), a component of the Environmental Management Program for the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS), is funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and administered by the U.S. Geological Survey's Upper Midwest Environmental Sciences Center (Center) in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The LTRMP supports six field stations operated by state agencies in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin ( Figure 1) to collect most of the monitoring data. Data on important ecosystem components, including water quality, vegetation, macroinvertebrates, and fish, are obtained using standardized operating procedures.

In 1992, macroinvertebrate sampling was begun in Pools 4, 8, 13, and 26; the Open River Reach of the Mississippi River; and La Grange Pool of the Illinois River as part of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program. Long-term monitoring is needed to detect population trends and local changes in aquatic ecosystems. We selected mayflies (Ephemeroptera), fingernail clams (Pisidiidae), and the exotic Corbicula species for monitoring. Midges (Chironomidae) were added to the sampling design in 1993 and zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) were added in 1995. Sampling was based on a stratified random design and conducted at approximately 125 sites per study area. Mean densities of taxa were weighted by strata for extrapolation....

Evaluations of Long Term Resource Monitoring Program sampling designs for water quality, fish, aquatic vegetation, and macroinvertebrates were initiated in 1999 by analyzing data collected since 1992 in six trend analysis areas. Initial emphasis was placed on evaluating statistical power to detect change from one year or sampling interval to the next, and on determining what spatial, methodological, or target variable redundancies existed in the data sets. Power to detect change was evaluated at halved, present, and doubled levels of effort. Power to detect change for different variables varied widely and was greatly influenced by sample size and for species by their frequency of occurrence. Power for detecting...

The Finger Lakes Habitat Rehabilitation and Enhancement Project (HREP) is intended to improve winter habitat conditions for fish in a series of interconnected backwater lakes of the Mississippi River near Alma, Wisconsin. Winter habitat requirements (temperature, flow velocity, and dissolved oxygen) for the target fish population in the Finger Lakes have been defined and limnological efforts have been aimed at quantifying the spatial-temporal patterns and interrelationships among water movement, oxygen, and temperature. The progress to date (preconstruction) has included detailed investigations into (1) system hydrology (including dye-tracer studies), (2) oxygen supply and depletion, (3) temperature regime, (4)...

This report summarizes monitoring activities of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) during 1999 and highlights selected results and accomplishments pertaining to hydrology, water quality, fish, macroinvertebrates, and vegetation. Mean discharge in 1999 was above average in the Upper Mississippi and Illinois Rivers, but spring flooding was relatively minor. Total nitrogen concentration has declined in the upper reaches of the LTRMP study area (Pools 4 and 8) from highs of about 4 mg/L in 1993 to present levels of about 1.5 mg/L. Mass balance budgets indicate that little nitrogen is lost (denitrified) as water moves through the LTRMP study pools on the Mississippi River. La Grange Pool on the Illinois...

The objective of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) macroinvertebrate component is to annually monitor and report trends in the status and distribution of key macroinvertebrate populations. Mayflies, fingernail clams, and midges, part of the soft-sediment substrate fauna, were chosen as target organisms for the LTRMP because of their important ecological role in the UMRS. For example, Thompson (1973) found that in fall, lesser scaup (Aythya affinis) gizzard contents contained 76% sphaeriids and about 13% mayflies. Thompson also found the target organisms to be important to canvasbacks (A. valisneria), ring-necked ducks (A. collaris), and American coots (Fulica americana) feeding in open water. A number...
