A Monitoring Protocol for Freshwater Macroinvertebrates (Cape Cod MA)
Freshwater lakes, ponds, and wetlands, and the plants and animals that they support, are among the most important natural resources of the Cape Cod National Seashore. This website examines a study for long-term biological monitoring to detect changes in water quality and other parameters in Seashore waters.
AUSRIVAS Bioassessment: Macroinvertebrates
AUSRIVAS (Australian River Assessment System) is a prediction system used to assess the biological health of Australian rivers. AUSRIVAS was developed under the National River Health Program (NRHP) by the Federal Government in 1994, in response to growing concern in Australia for maintaining ecological values.
Alexander Dawson School - Arches Stream Study
This website shows results of the Alexander Dawson School Stream Study in Colorado. Two purposes are investigated: Is there a connection between the amount of macroinvertebrates and the readings in water chemistry. Identify macroinvertebrate species, diversity, and use that to determine the water quality.
Alexander Dawson School - RMNPÂ Stream Study
Alexander Dawson School description of science project comparing water chemistry and macroinvertebrates from different sources such as ponds, riffles, and pools in the RMNP moraine.

Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems
Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems is an international journal dedicated to publishing original papers that relate specifically to freshwater, brackish or marine habitats and encouraging work that spans these ecosystems.
Benthic Macroinvertebrate Bioassessment Services
ECORP biological expertise includes benthic macroinvertebrate bioassessment. Our biologists routinely conduct investigations on impacts to habitat and community structure resulting from altered stream flow (i.e., downstream releases from dams, diversions, and hydroelectric power facilities) and altered habitats, primarily resulting from sediment input.
This is an open ended field exercise in which students sample the benthic macroinvertebrate populations of a given stream and determine community structure through the use of two indices. It is part of a semester course in stream ecology in which students survey and describe a stream ecosystem.
Benthic Macroinvertebrates: Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wa
Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater represents the best current practice of American water analysts. This comprehensive reference covers all aspects of water and wastewater analysis techniques.
Information on benthic macroinvertebrates from the Swiss Agency for the Environment.
CYLINDROSPERMOPSIS AND OTHER POTENTIAL TOXIN-PRODUCING BLUE-GREEN ALGAE IN INDIA
Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii is from the group of interesting organisms that have characteristics of both simple plants and bacteria and are called cyanobacteria or blue-green algae. This ancient group of algae tolerates a wide range of environmental conditions and has even been found growing in hot springs, Antarctic lakes under permanent ice cover, and extremely salty pools. Some species form dormant cells that can withstand dry or harsh conditions for extended periods of time.
