    A process-based hierarchical framework for monitoring glaciated alpine headwaters. Recent studies have demonstrated the geomorphic complexity and wide range of hydrologic regimes found in alpine headwater channels that provide complex habitats for aquatic taxa. This paper addresses the complexity of the task of defining ecological regions as well as the concept of regional reference sites, and provides an explanation of the development of the hierarchical ecoregion framework within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Comparisons are made with other frameworks such as watersheds or basins.

To investigate the possible hierarchy of ecological filters that regulate common carp recruitment at regional and local scales, we analysed the results of fisheries surveys across three neighbouring ecoregions in temperate North America that.
