Freshwater Biomonitoring Using Benthic Macroinvertebrates
(FIS2321)

INSTRUCTORS: Dr. J. Reese Voshell, Jr. (author of A Guide to Common
Freshwater Invertebrates of North America) and Mr. Stephen Hiner, M.S.

DATE: May 16 - 20, 2005

LOCATION: National Conservation Training Center (Shepherdstown, West
                 Virginia)

TUITION: $850





 Practices and concepts of using macroinvertebrates to monitor the
 environmental health or integrity of freshwater ecosystems.
 During this field-based course, participants will be directed to
 properly sample, identify benthic macroinvertebrates (usually to
 the family level), and use multimetric indices to assess biotic
 integrity of a number of stream locations.  Sites will comprise a
 range of impairment levels and stream sizes. Discussion will
 focus on the effects of different types of pollution and
 environmental stress on assemblages of organisms and underlying
 ecological principles.  Topics include sampling procedures and
 design, proper use of collecting equipment, rapid bioassessment
 protocols, ecological principles, biotic integrity, biotic
 indicators, guild structure, categories and derivation of
 metrics, multimetric indices development, determining reference
 conditions, setting biological criteria, index scoring criteria
 modifications, and advantages and disadvantages of using
 macroinvertebrates in biomonitoring efforts.

 Some participant comments:

 “The course brought everything together.  An excellent
 introduction to biomonitoring.”
 “Combining the field work and the statistical analysis provided a
 thoroughly holistic view of the science.”
 “Combination of field work & classroom.  Excellent training
 facilities.  Excellent instruction & course activities.”
 “Hands on experience in field & lab methods.”
 “Material (lecture) extremely well presented.  Demonstration &
 explanation of sample designs, indices, metrics clear and
 well-presented.”
 “Outstanding; very applicable to real world.”


 College Credit (Undergraduate): 2 semester hours.


 Course Length: 4.5 days
