Rainfall Bibliography Temperature Ranges Decomposers and insects Temperature variations between night and day tend to be fairly limited during summer, with a difference that can reach 17 degree F, and in the winter an average difference of 18F. Rainfall is fairly evenly distributed throughout the year, with the wettest month being July with an average rainfall of 3.73 inches. "Lake Superior Climate - Messina & Associates."

Mammals that depend on Lake Superior streams for their primary habitat or their primary food source include beaver, mink, muskrat, river otter, and raccoons. Freshwater macroinvertebrates include the aquatic insects, mites, worms, snails, and crayfish. Also called benthic macroinvertebrates or more simply "benthos" because they live on surfaces like rocks, logs, sediment, debris and aquatic plants during some period in their life "Understanding - Benthos."
