This dataset contains the information of the sites and carbon and nitrogen isotope information of macroinvertebrates and algae sampled in the streams of Salt Lake Valley, Utah: Red Butte Creek, Emigration Creek, Mill Creek, Big Cottonwood Creek, Logan River, as well as Diamond Creek which is located in northwestern Arizona. The macroinvertebrates were collected by surfer sampler and the algae collected by hand and the sampling occurred from June - September, 2015. The samples were cleaned and prepared within 48 hours for nitrogen and carbon stable isotope analysis in the mass spectrometer at the stable isotope facility, SIRFER. The purpose of the study was to assess the efficacy of the use of nitrogen stable isotope patterns of macroinvertebrates and algae to observe potential anthropogenic impacts in streams that flow from a montane to urban ecosystem gradient.
