It is clear that the erosional and depositional character of the watershed as a whole shapes the macroinvertebrate communities, but it is unclear which factors will negatively impact the communities to the extent that they cannot maintain the natural food web and decomposition activities they should provide.

Gardner, a sedimentologist, says he wouldn't want to work with a map altered by either kind of algorithm because they both could change the shape of valleys, canyons and other features subject to erosional and depositional processes.
