Total numbers and species of insects taken from rock scrubbings during the summer of 1984-1988, 1993-1994, 1996-1998, in the Kuparuk River experimental reach near Toolik Field Station, North Slope Alaska..

Abstract: 

A rock-scrubbing technique was used to collect bottom samples at several different stations with three replicates at each station in the Kuparuk River. The stations are measured relative to the 1984 phosphorus dripper. Only July sampling dates are included in this file (ACG). The samples were preserved in ethanol then picked, sorted, counted, and measured in Duluth using a NIKON MICRO-PLAN II digitizing pad.
