Study area: Wolf River, Mackenzie River, Spruce River and Nipigon 10 burn zone watersheds. These are tributaries of Lake Superior and lie within the northwestern Ontario boreal forest near Thunder Bay, Ontario. Sites were classified according to catchment size and disturbance adjacent to the stream... The effectiveness of macroinvertebrate indices for monitoring the effects of timber harvesting on stream habitat were determined as well as the influence of stream size and disturbance on community structure and physical habitat...
