Abstract

The concentrations and community structure of aquatic hyphomycete conidia in water were followed over a two-year period in two headwater streams at Coweeta Hydrologie Laboratory, NC, USA using the membrane filtration technique. Litter input into one stream was excluded for 6 years prior to and during the course of our study whereas the reference stream received natural litter inputs during this time. This whole-stream substrate manipulation resulted in seasonal differences in maximum conidia concentrations in the two streams and shifts in dominant species or their rankings. However, total conidia concentrations were not significantly affected by the litter-exclusion treatment.
