The purpose of the paper is to summarize known effects of acid precipitation on stream ecosystems, with emphasis on the Great Lakes region. Unfortunately, very little research has been conducted on streams in much of the Great Lakes region. Thus, data will be utilized from other regions of the United States as well as from Norway, Sweden, and elsewhere; from laboratory studies on effects of pH on biota; and from our own research on effects of pH on soft water streams in Michigan to summarized probable effects on stream ecosystems within the region.
