    Hynes (1970) observed that living organisms in streams may significantly affect nutrient concentrations, but our understanding of these effects remains elusive and subject to debate (Cardinale, 2011a,b; Baulch et al., 2011). The possible role of biotic, in-stream processes for affecting nutrients is important to understanding how upstream processes are linked to downstream responses (Vannote et al., 1980; Mulholland et al., 1995), to the biogeochemical interpretation of watershed exports (eg, Bernhardt et al., 2005), and to delivery of nutrients to coastal waters (Doney, 2010).
