Prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey and Duke University, this research report describes the creation of a Bayesian network model to evaluate the effects of urban development on macroinvertebrate communities in streams. The model aims to inform which management approaches would lead to Biological Condition Gradient (BCG) goals.
