This report presents, analyzes, and discusses information about the ecological condition of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). The report includes, but is not limited to data and results from the initial years of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP), the largest monitoring program in the country. The mission of the LTRMP is to provide decision makers with information they need to maintain the UMRS as a sustainable large river ecosystem given its multiple-use character

Spatial, temporal, and environmental trends of fish assemblages within six reaches of the Upper Mississippi River System by Valerie A Barko( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We investigated differences in adult and young-of-the-year (YOY) fishes within each of the six Long Term Resource Monitoring Program study areas, using monitoring data from 1993 to 2001. Our objective was to investigate the relative roles of seasonal, annual, in situ, and physical habitat factors in explaining assemblage structure patterns within the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program study areas. Adult and YOY assemblage structure within each reach was dominated by one to three numerically abundant species. The percent of the total abundance for which these species accounted was 10-88% and varied among age classes and study areas. Physical habitat classes were only weakly associated with differences in fish assemblage patterns within each study area. The amount of variation in fish abundance explained by physical habitats varied among the reaches. Differences among physical habitat classes accounted for 3-23% of the variation in the adult fish assemblage and for 3-20% of the difference in the YOY fish assemblage within each reach of our study area. Factors associated with interannual differences in environmental conditions were strongly correlated to patterns in assemblage structure within each of the six study areas. This was particularly true for YOY assemblages. Such a result would not have been attainable without long-term standardized data. Little is known regarding YOY assemblage patterns and dynamics in large river systems and long-term data sets are vital for continued investigation. The influence of environmental gradients on fish assemblage structure varied among the six study areas and explained 9-31% of the variation in assemblage structure. In the northern four reaches, water velocity was one of the primary factors associated with differences in fish assemblage structure. In the Unimpounded Reach (Upper Mississippi River) and Illinois River study areas, river elevation was one of the primary factors associated with differences in assemblage structure. Depth of gear deployment was influential in explaining differences in assemblage structure patterns in all reaches except the Upper Mississippi River Pool 4 and the Illinois River study areas. In all study areas, the amount of variation in fish abundance patterns explained by sampling period was relatively low. However, assemblage structure differed among sampling periods. In the northern reaches, sampling periods 2 and 3 were the most similar
Development of a life history database for upper Mississippi River fishes( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summasizes the development of a life history database for Upper Mississippi River System fishes. It provides the rationale for its development within the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program, describes it, outlines standards for its development. and demonstrates how it can be linked to the LTRMP fisheries database and used to address a host of new questions relevant to management and science in the basin

Multiyear synthesis of the macroinvertebrate component from 1992 to 2002 for the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program by Jennifer S Sauer( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1992, macroinvertebrate sampling was begun in Pools 4, 8, 13, and 26 and the Open River Reach of the Mississippi River and in the La Grange Pool of the Illinois River as part of the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program. Long-term monitoring is needed to detect population trends and local changes in aquatic ecosystems. We selected mayflies (Ephemeroptera), fingernail clams (Pisidiidae), and the exotic Corbicula species for monitoring. Midges (Chironomidae) were added to the sampling design in 1993 and zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) were added in 1995. Sampling was based on a stratified random design and conducted at approximately 125 sites per study area. Mean densities of taxa were weighted by strata for extrapolation. The poolwide estimated mean densities of mayflies, fingernail clams, and midges were all within the range of variation observed historically. Over the last 11 years of sampling, the northern study areas supported the highest densities of the target organisms

Analysis of fish age structure and growth in the Illinois River by Michael A Smith( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Otoliths and other calcified structures have been used to age and determine growth rates of fish from a variety of habitats. Sagittal otoliths were removed from fishes representing five species from La Grange Pool of the Illinois River for age determination. Species collected included largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoldes), black crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus), bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus), white bass (Morone chrysops), and freshwater drum (Aplodinotus grunniens). Common univariate techniques were used to analyze the significance of spatial and temporal variation in growth and back-calculated mean length-at-age for all five species
Multiyear synthesis of limnological data from 1993 to 2001 for the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents a broad overview of spatial and temporal variation in the limnological characteristics of the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Important sources of variability within the UMRS include a longitudinal (north-south) gradient, and differences among years, seasons, and aquatic areas (e.g., main channel versus contiguous backwaters). Understanding spatial and temporal variation at these scales requires a systemic perspective on the river. The Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) provides a systemic perspective through the collection and analysis of monitoring data from six study reaches representing the upper, lower, and open river reaches of the UMRS: Pool 4 near Lake City, Minnesota; Pool 8 near Onalaska, Wisconsin; Pool 13 near Bellevue, Iowa; Pool 26 near Alton, Illinois; Open River, near Cape Girardeau, Missouri; and La Orange Pool of the Illinois River near Havana, Illinois. This report presents data from 1993 to 2001 (or 2002 when available). The focus is on spring and summer conditions because spring is the time of maximum discharge and, therefore, maximum transport of suspended solids and nutrients and summer is the time of peak biological activity. Winter data are included in the analyses of dissolved oxygen because dissolved oxygen may be a critical component of winter habitat for many fish species within the northern reaches of the UMRS
