The Stream Biome Gradient Concept is a way to compare streams in different climates and different continents. The concept can improve how researchers study streams worldwide. «This model will help us understand how to regulate and conserve streams and protect water quality,» the concept’s developer said. «It’s important to think in broad terms and in the context that people, plants and animals interact with streams. Understanding biodiversity is crucial.»
