The efficacy of a regional stream classification system, based on the principle that streams reflect the character of the lands they drain, was evaluated in Arkansas. The classification consisted of six aquatic ecoregions defined by relatively homogeneous types of land-surface form, soil, potential natural vegetation and land use. Fish, physical habitat and water quality were sampled in 22 streams throughout the state. Data subjected to ordination analysis generally showed greater similarity in streams within the same ecoregion than in streams in different ecoregions. (Copyright (c) 1987 by Oikos Publishers, Inc.)
