Ecological Investigations of Two Naucorid Species (Ambrysus amargosus and A. relictus) Endemic to Thermal Springs of the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

A two-year study was undertaken to describe important ecological relationships determining the distributions and abundances of two endemic naucorid species, Ambrysus amargosus and A. relictus, inhabiting springs within the Ash Meadows National Wildlife Refuge. Aspects of naucorid biology that were studied included: (1) seasonal variation in abundance, and abundances of co-occurring benthic invertebrates, within and among springs, (2) life history characteristics, (3) physical habitat requirements and microhabitat selection, and (4) diet and feeding. In addition, this study documented the successful introduction and establishment of .A. amargosus into a portion of its former range.
