Abstract

As part of a base-line ecological study of the R. Wye related to the construction of an enlarged Craig Goch, a proposed major regulating reservoir in the upper catchment which will be filled from a variety of sources, two sites (W2 and W3) in the headwaters were intensively studied during the period March 1975 – April 1976 and estimates of production made for two species of Ephemeroptera. Both study sites are typical salmon nursery areas with a substrate of cobbles and coarse gravel forming a ‘riffle’ habitat. The water, similar at both sides, is soft (mean calcium concentration = 4.1 mg/l) and low in inorganic nutrients. Samples, taken weekly during the summer and less frequently at other times, were collected from each riffle on a stratified random basis using a cylinder sampler (area, 0.05m2 ) modified after Neill (1938). Seven replicate samples were taken with weekly sampling and 14 at other sampling frequencies. The wetted area of each site was measured frequently throughout the study.
