Donald W. Webb

(12 July 1939 5 September 2012)

Benthologist, Bibliographer, Balladeer


The past and present members of the SFS Literature Review Committee dedicate this annual bibliographic compilation for the year 2011 to Dr. Donald W. Webb, who passed away peacefully at home on 5 September 2012. Don had served on this committee since 1969, and as chair from 1973 through 2010. The perennial success of this annual bibliography, and the collegial interactions and comradery amongst section contributors over the years were always championed by Don resulting in a consistent, high quality bibliographic compilation. This annual publication prepared for the Society for Freshwater Science (and before that, Midwest Benthological Society [1953-1975] and North American Benthological Society [1975-2011]) has excelled far beyond like-compilations prepared by any other organization, worldwide for its members, and for the greater scientific communities focusing on all things benthological. Don was honored during a memorial / musical jam session on Tuesday evening, 21 May at the annual society meeting in Jacksonville, Florida (19-23 May 2013) (see extended note at top of following page). During that special session, SFS members shared their memories of Don with each other personal reflections as well as his unselfish dedication and devotion to our Society on so many levels. A more formal memoriam, as originally discussed, was changed to include music, as it would have been an undersight in absence of highlighting his long involvement with the Benthic Balladeers that rag tag group of seasoned musicians-turned-benthologists who have gathered (often more than once) during our annual meetings to entertain, serenade, and otherwise humor themselves as well as any and all other members, guests, and passersby. If you knew Don, on any level, you certainly know the reasons supporting the love and respect we have always had for him throughout his career, and on into retirement when he took up Turf Consultation (golf). It is a little known fact that Don has been memorialized (verse 11) in the official song of MBS/NABS/SFS **the Benthic Waltz (ca. 1986, Thomas F. Waters). Don was an important vertebra in the backbone of this society, even though most of us work with the diverse boneless wonders of the world. We shall always remember Don for his guidance, encouragement, and most of all, courtesy and kindness, and crooning over the years.



A special memorial / jam session was organized and presented on Tuesday evening, during the 61st annual meeting of the Society for Freshwater Science in Jacksonville, Florida; during that session, The Benthic Waltz and many other songs were played to honor ten of our societys perennial members who passed away in 2012 and early 2013: Thomas F. Waters, Donald W. Webb, Kenneth W. Stewart, Katharine 'Tara' Willey, William P. Coffman, Michael Hubbard, James R. Sedell, John D. Unzicker, Sadie Gnilka, and Jarl K. Hiltunen. Memoria for Tom, Don, Ken, Tara, Bill, Mike, and Jim are presented in the Benthos News section of our Society's website, here:

FOREWORD. Current and Selected Bibliographies on Benthic Biology is published annually for the members of the Society for Freshwater Science (SFS) (formerly, the Midwest Benthological Society [MBS, 1953-1975] then the North American Benthological Society [NABS, 1975-2011]). This compilation summarizes titles of articles published during the year 2011. Additionally, pertinent titles of articles published prior to 2011 also have been included if they had not been cited in previous reviews, or to correct errors in previous annual bibliographies, and authors of several sections have included citations for more recent (2012) publications. I extend my appreciation to past and present members of the MBS, NABS and SFS Literature Review and Publications Committees, to librarians Elizabeth Wohlgemuth (Illinois Natural History Survey) and Susan Braxton (Prairie Research Institute), and to Kristi L. Moss and Erika Bilger for their assistance in compiling this 2011 bibliography. Information on SFS membership (including downloadable and membership forms) are available here: Inquiries should be directed towards SFS Member Services: 5400 Bosque Blvd., Suite 680, Waco, TX 76710 USA; telephone: (254) 399-9636; FAX: (254) 776-3767; E-mail:


Please Read These Notes: Historically, annual compilations of this bibliography were presented in a two-column format. Since this annual bibliography has not been published in hard copy since 2002 (7-7/8 x 10, soft cover), this current bibliography is being presented in a single column, full-page width format. The keen eye will discern slight variations in citation format from one section to the next. While many section authors have closely followed the citation format recommended years ago by former committee chair Don Webb (in consultation with Ron Hellenthal, who for years integrated annual bibliographic compilations with a global database he maintained for the Society requiring a citation format that was best for the database at that time), other perennial members of this committee provide citations formatted differently (likely congruent with their own bibliographic database formats). This is a committee of dedicated volunteers (many who have been members for over 25 years); thus, I feel it is more important to accept contributions from all committee members rather than reject sections that do not follow explicit format or meet fixed deadlines. I will be discussing options regarding the future of this annual bibliography with the Societys Publications Committee soon, and in particular, requesting some minimal funds to revitalize the searchable global citation database, and to integrate annual compilations over the last 10 years that remain accessible to current members only as text (MS Word) and PDF files via the Societys website.

If you see errors or omissions in any of the citations included below, please send the incorrect as well as the corrected citation(s) to the author(s) of the pertinent section(s). As many committee members note at the beginning of their sections, please send your publications (paper reprint or pdf) to all pertinent section editors to assure they are accurately included; bibliographic download services are incredible assets to committee members when compiling our sections, but we know that citations provided by these services are occasionally inaccurate and/or incomplete. Thank you for your interest and assistance. Mark J. Wetzel, Editor 2011 NABS/SFS Annual Bibliography, and Chair, SFS Literature Review Committee. E-mail:
