Quotes

"During [fall of 2013] Gloucester Twp. Public Works Department removed the riparian buffer, scraped up wetlands vegetation and put down gravel at the sampling site. NJ DEP has since issued a Notice of Violation and is requiring Gloucester Twp. to remove fill and replace buffer vegetation" the report states
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "While our conclusions should not be interpreted as recommendations for buffer widths, they provide valuable insight into the scales of influence in the region and could be used to inform management decisions."
"For the most part, the streams are in good condition, supporting a healthy community of fish and macroinvertebrates. Macroinvertebrates -- more commonly called 'bugs' -- are creatures without backbones, such as insects, snails and clams" the MPCA stated
The study "Understanding and predicting the combined effects of climate change and land-use change on freshwater macroinvertebrates and fish" by Chrystal S Mantyka-Pringle, Tara G Martin, David B Moffatt, Simon Linke and Jonathan R Rhodes was published in The Journal of Applied Ecology
