Environmental requirements associated with 363 North American species of the freshwater insects of the order Plecoptera (stoneflies) were investigated. Profile forms on each species, representing a compilation of information surveyed from selected published sources, indicate the ranges of environmental conditions under which the species has been found. Ecological parameters considered include: pH, nutrients, organic pollution, dissolved oxygen concentration, temperature, turbidity, current and general and specific habitats, seasonal emergence of adults, feeding behavior and geographical distribution. The report is designed to be applicable to water quality investigations and to provide a baseline from which further ecological and systematic research is encouraged.
