Behavior responses of Drunella coloradensis (Ephemeroptera) nymphs to short-term pH reductions

Publications Posted on: May 28, 2015
Behavioral responses of Drunella coloradensis nymphs were examined in outdoor experimental stream channels after pH reductions of 7 and 2 pH units below ambient. The severity of pH decline below the ambient of 7.8 influenced the behavior patterns displayed by nymphs. At pH 7.01 (an intermediate pH decline) nymphs sat less frequently and burrowed more than controls.
