Arctic Long Term Ecological Research (LTER): Streams in Alaska

We conduct experimental fertilization of the Kuparuk River and Oksrukuyik Creek to determine the effects of added phosphorus and nitrogen on primary productivity, insect communities, and fish growth in arctic rivers. We are using this information to predict the relative importance of bottom-up and top-down controls in arctic stream ecosystems. [Note: 1996 was the last summer that Oksrukuyik Creek was fertilized.]
