This hands-on course for natural resource staff provides an overview of aquatic macroinvertebrate sampling in the Willamette Valley, and guidelines for using the resulting data to assess habitat condition and responses to restoration. Participants will learn: identification of aquatic invertebrate families commonly encountered in our water bodies, including which groups are more characteristic of running vs. still waters; steps in designing and implementing aquatic invertebrate-based biomonitoring methodologies, including multiple sampling techniques; the variety of data analysis options and which are most appropriate for different research goals. We will use these techniques and equipment in the field, and do basic analysis of the macroinvertebrate data collected. Dress appropriately for field work.
