Colonization studies on a series of 12 outdoor experimental channels supplied with water from Wheeler Reservoir (Tennessee River) were completed at the Browns Ferry Biothermal Research Station in Alabama. Species composition, dominance, seasonal patterns, colonization rates, and biomass estimates were determined over a 24-month period for periphyton, zooplankton, and macroinvertebrates. In general, the species composition and the relative densities of algal and invertebrate organisms that colonized the channels indicated that the channels successfully simulate reservoir ecosystems for those trophic levels.
