Interpretation of Key Findings Based on Multiple Sources

Statements within this literature review are based on the reported findings from various published sources. Due to differences in sample design, methodology, geographical location, site characteristics, data analysis and interpretation, these statements may or may not agree with the results of other published reports. Despite contradictory results, one cannot say the findings of one author are more or less valid than another, due to the wide range of site characterists. Readers are urged to consider how and where information was collected when interpreting the value of the following conclusions. Headwater stream science is, in many ways, a relatively new field. Early observations and case studies may or may not represent widespread relationships.
