Tommy Cianciolo Work Published in Science of the Total Environment

Tommy Cianciolo’s work has been published in Science of the Total Environment! The article is titled “Impacts to water quality and biota persist in mining-influenced Appalachian streams.” This article investigates salinization from surface coal mining in central Appalachian headwater streams. Salinization is associated with alterations of benthic macroinvertebrate communities, as many organisms…

Drover Work on Multiple Stressors Impacting Benthic Macroinvertebrate Communities Published in Hydrobiologia

Damion Drover, a former Ph.D. student with Dr. Schoenholtz at the Virginia Tech Forest Hydrology and Soils Lab, has published a paper in Hydrobiologia. The study assesses mining-origin stressors (particularly elevated salinity) on benthic macroinvertebrate community structure in headwater streams. The paper is titled “Multiple stressors influence benthic macroinvertebrate communities…
