Macroinvertebrate Sampling

In this portion of the field trip, we will be using macroinvertebrates as bioindicators, or living things whose presence or absence tells us about the health of water. Find the “Field Trip: Macroinvertebrates” pages in your science journal. This is where you will record your data. Click here to download a copy of the data pages for the macroinvertebrate section of the field trip.

The following video will introduce you to how and why we sample for macroinvertebrates.
