Abstract

This dataset contains the results of a nutrient limitation study conducted in the Logan River, the Middle Provo River, Red Butte Creek and the Jordan River. We measured the response of stream biofilms to nitrogen and phosphorus enrichment with nutrient diffusing substrates. Biofilm response was measured as chlorophyll a and ash-free dry mass. The mean, standard deviation, and sample size of biofilm responses to nutrient enrichment treatments are included in this dataset. The dataset also includes the concentration of total nitrogen, total phosphorus, NH4-N, NO3-N, and SRP in stream water samples collected from each site.

Name Value
Observed Variables chlorophyll a, ash-free dry mass, total nitrogen, total phosphorus, NH4-N, NO3-N, SRP-P
Variable Description biofilm biomass and stream nutrient concentrations
Data Processing Method For nutrient concentrations below the detection limit, we report half of the method detection limit (method detection limits: 0.0175 mg/L for TN, 0.003 mg/L for TP, 0.005 mg/L for NH4-N, 0.002 mg/L for NO3-N, and 0.002 mg/L for SRP). Data identified as outliers (Tukey method) were excluded.
Data Collection Method Nutrient diffusing substrates (NDS) were made by filling 1-oz plastic cups with agar enriched with treatments of either: no nutrients (Control), nitrogen (+N; 0.5 M NH4Cl), phosphorus (+P; 0.5M KH2PO4), or nitrogen and phosphorus at a series of concentrations (N+P; 0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 1.0 M NH4Cl + KH2PO4). After NDS were incubated in the stream for 14-18 days, the response of stream biofilms to NDS treatments was measured as chlorophyll a and ash-free dry mass.
