Ch 10, Biodiversity
We learned how MacroInvertebrates could indicate the North Concho River's water pollution in this simulation.
First we learned how people collect benthic invertebrates: Kick sampling pics.docx
Second, we learned how to identify the critters that indicate, Good water, Medium water and Bad water.
Third, we practiced with imaginary samples:
They followed this powerpoint: MacroInv & Pollution warmup.pptx
which was followed by: Macro Invert WS #1.docx
The next day, we learned how two hypothetical guys gathered critters from 6 different locations along the
North Concho River. Here are the locations: Macroinvertebrates & pollution MAP of North Concho.doc
Students filled out: Stream-Bottom Macroinvertebrates (Diversity and Pollution) Student Sheet.doc
while using the Macroinvertebrates and pollution Reference (Pink).doc
Below are the pics of the critters at all six locations: 29th Street Dam @Kirby Park.doc & 19th Street, near the Juvenile Justice Center.doc & 14th Street near City Lumber .doc & 6th Street dam @Bryant & Loop Junction .doc & 1st Street, near Santa Fe Golf and CHS tennis.doc & Bell Street near Rio Concho Manor.doc
