Due to climatic changes, stream habitats are projected to be exposed to more frequent and intense floods. Floods can dramatically alter the stream ecosystem by lowering aquatic invertebrate abundance and richness, changing stream substrate composition, and impacting microhabitat availability. Depending on the substrate preferences of individual species, aquatic invertebrate populations could be impacted not only directly by floods, but also in their ability to re-populate highly altered stream habitats. In this study, we focused on...
