Ecologists have created a new way to monitor and compare streams worldwide, according to a press release from Kansas State University. The research team’s new Stream Biome Gradient Concept is a way to study streams from a variety of countries and environments.

Prior to the concept, research had mostly focused on streams in temperate environments. The concept was developed to explore ecology on a much larger scale. Researchers say their method will help scientists discover how to maintain and improve stream health. They also hope the concept will provide people with a better understanding of how stream ecosystems work.
