Study area



The data were collected from the Aldeia river network at Fazenda Nova Vida, a large cattle ranch 50 km from the city of Ariquemes, in central Rondonia. (See associated documentation for a map of the study area and a list of the sampling stations). The river network consists of first to fourth order streams in a mix of forest and pasture. Terrain was gently rolling, with low-gradient, second-order, clear-water streams draining the basins. Streams of second-order and higher had flowing water through all but the severest dry periods. In two watersheds (referred to as PVA1 and PVA2), two smaller (2nd order) drainage basins, one with forest cover and one with pasture cover, were identified and paired PVA1-Forest4 with PVA1-Pasture12 and PVA2-Forest8 with PVA2-Pasture7. In PVA1 a third-order stream (PVA1-Pasture 25)that was the confluence of the second-order forest and pasture streams was also intensively studied. In PVA1, the second-order forest stream had a watershed area of 17.8 km2. It was shaded, had a pool and run structure and a mean wetted width of 4 m, a maximum depth of 42 cm and dry season discharges of 15-40 L s-1. The PVA1 second-order pasture stream had a watershed area of 8.4 km2. It was bordered by the C4 grass Paspalum repens (Medina et al. 1976) along its entire length, had slow-moving deep runs with extensive channel infilling by grass, organic material, a mean wetted channel width of 5.2 m, an open water channel width of 1.4 m and a mean depth of 42 cm. It had dry season discharges from 14 to 90 L s-1. The PVA1 third-order pasture stream had a watershed area of 27 km2. It had high sandy banks, a pool and run structure and lacked extensive growth of grass in the stream channel. Although this stream had some riparian trees, the canopy was relatively open and most of the stream was exposed to the sun. It had a wetted channel width of 3.6 m, a nearly identical open water channel width of 3.5 m and a mean depth of 34 cm. It had dry season discharges of 45 to 100 L s-1.

These basins lie at 200-500 m elevation in a region generally underlain by Precambrian granitic rock (Projeto RADAMBRASIL 1978). The climate of central Rondonia is humid tropical. Mean annual relative humidity is 89 percent, mean daily temperature is 25.6 degrees C, and mean daily temperature for the warmest and coolest months varies <5 degrees C (Bastos and Diniz 1982). Rainfall averages 2.2 m/yr with a distinct dry season during June-October and a rainy season stretching from November-May. Rainfall averages more than 300 mm per month in the wettest four months (December-March) and less than 40 mm per month during the driest three months (June- August) (Bastos and Diniz 1982). Forest in the cleared basins was converted directly to pasture by cutting, burning, and planting pasture grasses in the same year. Brush was cut in March, large trees were felled in June or July, slash was burned in late August or September, and the pasture grass Brachiara brizantha [Hochst] Stapf was seeded during December or January. The pastures were burned again in September 1992 to kill the re-growth of weeds and stump sprouts and to reduce the volume of dead wood. Pastures were not cultivated, nor were they amended with fertilizer or lime. Pastures were actively grazed beginning approximately one year after forest clearing and stocked throughout this study at 1-1.5 animals/ ha. This is typical management of extensive pastures on large cattle ranches in the region. Native vegetation in the forested basins is classified as moist open tropical forest and consists of perennially evergreen broadleaf trees with a high number of palms (Pires and Prance 1986). Selective logging in the forests removed 3-4 trees/ha during 1987- 1990. A tree canopy shaded forest streams, and stream channels contained unvegetated sandy point bars. Pasture stream channels were bordered by uplands planted to B. brizantha and had only scattered trees in the riparian zone. Pasture stream channels typically contained wetland grasses (Paspallum spp.), which sometimes forms floating mats that covered most of the stream channel.

Soil characteristics and soil N and P stocks and dynamics have been previously examined in these basins (Neill et al. 1995, Moraes et al. 1996, Garcia-Montiel et al. 2000). These basins are equivalent to the pastures cleared in 1989 in chronosequences 1 and 2 in these studies. Soils are well-drained Kandiudults and Paleudults (red-yellow podzolic latosols in the Brazilian classification). These and generally similar soils cover 22 percent of the Brazilian Amazon (Moraes et al. 1995).



Field methods:

Stream physical characteristics

In PVA 1, stream physical characteristics were measured in representative reaches of 800 m (forest stream; PVA1-Forest8), 500 m (second-order pasture stream; PVA1-Pasture12) and 760 m (third-order pasture stream; PVA1-Pasture25) that had no obvious tributaries or other obvious surface water inputs.

The second- and third-order streams were marked at 20 m intervals and sampling stations were assigned, relative to the location of the 15N addition point at 0 m, at -260, 40, 60, 100, 140, 200, 320, 560, and 800 m for the second-order forest stream, -90, 30, 50, 80, 126, 232, and 500 m for the second-order pasture stream, and at -90, 40, 60, 100, 195, 460, and 760 m for the third-order pasture stream. Stream depth and benthic substrate type were recorded every 5 or 10 cm in cross sections (20 to 80 points per cross section) of the stream channels. Substrate type was classified as: terrestrial leaf pack (Leaf), woody debris (downfall trucks and stems; Wood), thin layer of fine organic matter over sand (Fine), exposed sand (sand), clay (clay) or gravel (gravel), coarse fragments of decomposed organic matter (detritus), and riparian grass (riparian). Very small patches of filamentous algae were observed but their area (<<< 0.01% of stream bottom) did not warrant a separate quantitative habitat classification. In the forest, cross sections were done every 10 m, at the designated stations and 5 m and 10 m upstream and downstream of the station (N= 75 cross sections). In the pasture streams, cross sections were at 10 m intervals from the 0 m station to the 100 m station, every 20 m between the 100 m and 200 m stations, and every 40 m downstream of the 200 m station. Additional cross sections were measured at the designated stations and 5 m and 10 m up and downstream of the designated stations (N=45 cross sections in second-order and 39 in third-order pasture streams). Percent cover by substrate type for each cross section was the total number of occurrences of each substrate type divided by the total number of occurrences of all substrate types. Mean percent cover for the stream reach of each substrate type was determined by averaging the percent for each cross section.





Soil solution from lysimeters

Soil solution was collected from tension lysimeters (Soil Moisture Equipment, Goleta, California, USA) installed in the upland (terra firme) of the forest and pasture watersheds of PVA Pair 1. These sites represented the uplands in each basin and were adjacent to soil collections. Five tension lysimeters were installed at 30 cm and at 100 cm at each site in September 1996. Water was collected from the lysimeters on multiple dates between 1997 and 2001. Samples were collected by placing a vacuum on the lysimeter and collecting water 24-48 hours later. Samples from the lysimeters were transferred to acid-washed polyethylene bottles, acidified to pH < 2 with HCl and stored refrigerated.



Stream water nutrients methods



Between 1994 and 2001 at each station, we collected 1L of streamwater that was placed on ice and filtered later the same day at the field laboratory for total suspended solids (TSS) and particulate organic carbon and nitrogen (POC and PON). One 60 mL sample for nitrate, ammonium, and phosphate, and total dissolved P (TDP) was filtered immediately through ashed glass fiber filters (Whatman GF/F), preserved with hydrochloric acid to < pH 2, and refrigerated. Another 60 mL sample for total dissolved N (TDN) was immediately filtered through ashed GF/F filters and frozen. Also in the field, 200 to 500 mL of streamwater was passed through a 47-mm diameter glass fiber filter (Whatman GF/C) for chlorophyll determination. This filter was immediately wrapped in foil, placed on ice, and then frozen upon return to the field laboratory. Dissolved oxygen was measured with a YSI Sonde (Yellow Springs Instruments Incorporated, Yellow Springs, OH). Water level heights were recorded from permanent staff gages in Reaches I and III at each water sampling. Continuous water level measurements in Reaches I and III were made over a one year period, from September 1999 through November 2000, using a water level datalogger (Global Water, Gold River, CA). Instantaneous discharge was calculated from stream cross-sectional area and velocity measurements (Hauer and Lamberti 1996). The water level measurements in 1999 and 2000 were converted to discharge by means of the stage-discharge relationships at Reaches I and III. Instantaneous discharge was also measured on selected dates in the downstream portion of Reach IV from cross-sectional area and velocity measurements.



Analytical methods

Total suspended solids were measured by filtering a known volume of streamwater through pre-weighed, ashed 25-mm glass fiber filters (Whatman GF/F) and reweighed after drying overnight at 50 degrees C. Filters for POC and PON were prepared the same way and analyzed for C and N on a Perkin Elmer 2400 elemental analyzer.

Nitrate was measured by cadmium reduction (Alpkem method A303-S171-09) on an Alpkem RFA analyzer. Ammonium was analyzed by the phenol-hypochlorite method

(Alpkem method A303-S020-02) and phosphate was measured using the antimony/molybdate and ascorbic acid method (Alpkem method A303-S200-00). We calculated dissolved inorganic nitrogen to phosphorus ratios (DIN:DIP) as (nitrate + ammonium)/phosphate. TDP was determined by acid persulfate digestion (Koroleff 1983). TDN was measured by alkaline persulfate digestion with HCl buffer solution (Modification of method 4500-Norg D, Eaton et al. (1995)). CertiPrep reference materials (SPEX Chemical, Metuchen, NJ) and laboratory-prepared solutions of ATP and nitrophenol were used to check the accuracy of the colorimetric methods and the efficiency of the TDN and TDP digestions. Dissolved organic nitrogen and phosphorus (DON and DOP) were calculated from the difference between TDN and TDP and inorganic N and P, respectively. Chlorophyll was extracted overnight from the frozen filters with a buffered 90% acetone solution. The extract was then analyzed using a fluorometer to determine chlorophyll a and phaeophytin concentrations (Strickland and Parsons 1972). Dissolved constituents were measured in all transects and particulate constituents were measured on 19 transects. Instantaneous measurements of dissolved oxygen were taken on one dry (1999) and one rainy (2000) season transect. Dissolved oxygen was measured continuously for 72 hours at one station in Reaches I, III, and IV during the 1999 dry season.
