Abstract or Summary
  • Effects of 4-inch (10.16 cm) suction dredge mining on benthic macroinvertebrates in 3rd to 4th order streams were investigated in 1996 by evaluating four mining claim operations in Althouse Creek, Sucker Creek, and Taylor Creek in southwestern Oregon's Rogue River basin. The effects were site-specific. The study showed no significant (p>0.05) differences between treatment and control areas in density and species diversity of benthic macroinvertebrates. However, mean taxa richness significantly (p<0.05) increased thirty days following the end of the mining period. Collector-filterers were significantly (p<0.05) lower in dredged areas thirty days after the mining season. Because of constraints in sampling design, sample sizes and relatively small treatment areas, the results from this study are tenuous at best. There were apparent inherent differences in species dominance among sites possibly a result of differences in stream size and riparian conditions. This further confounds results of this study.
