dc.description.abstract The North Branch of the Portage River was sampled by means of artificial substrates in order to determine the effect of sewage-treatment-plant effluent on the diatom communities. The effluent appears to be a source of nitrogen and phosphorus for the river. Diatom-community composition appears to be affected by the effluent; Gomphonema parvulum, in particular, was especially abundant at stations with a high content of Poe Ditch effluent. A total of 111 diatom taxa was observed in this study; 24 of these taxa were previously unreported from Ohio. en_US
