Description: We characterised aquatic and terrestrial invertebrate drift in six south-western North Carolina streams and their implications for trout production. Streams of this region typically have low standing stock and production of trout because of low benthic productivity. However, little is known about the contribution of terrestrial invertebrates entering drift, the factors that affect these inputs (including season, die1 period and riparian cover type), or the energetic contribution of drift to trout.
Keywords: aquatic invertebrates, drive, secondary production, terrestrial invertebrates, trout
