Stream Invertebrate Taxa Qualitative Abundances

Summary

Abstract: 

As part of the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, a systematic sampling program has been undertaken to monitor the abundance and species distribution of algal mats in glacial meltwater streams of the region. This table contains data showing a qualitative count of invertebrate taxa found in the samples gathered.
