Sampling Methods

Most sampling in upland streams occurred in Talladega National Forest. Larger streams were located mainly at road crossings adjacent to private land. In total, we have positive collections from 192 unique sites. Sites ranged in elevation from 131–660 m (429–2165 ft). Adult stoneflies were collected with a beating sheet to dislodge specimens from riparian vegetation, hand-picking from rocks, leaf packs, tree trunks and bridges, and use of light traps on warm evenings.

Study Extent The Talladega Mountain region is the southernmost outlier of the ancient Appalachian Mountains, consists of metamorphic and igneous rocks and is a composite of several low-lying ridges and other uplifted regions and adjacent valleys in the Piedmont and Ridge and Valley Physiographic Provinces in eastern Alabama. In total, 26 collecting trips occurred between 2003 and 2012.
