Title Abstract
Total numbers per square meter and taxa of insects taken from the Kuparuk River during the summer of 2001, Arctic LTER 2001.
A Surber sampler (25 X 25 cm frame fitted with a 243 um mesh net) was used to sample invertebrates at several different stations. Two replicates were taken from each station. The same sampling procedure was used for all dates. The stations were measured relative to the site of the dripper ("-" = upstream of the dripper). Samples were preserved in 4% formaldehyde and transported to Orono, Maine, where invertebrates were removed by hand under 15X magnification and then... more
Total numbers per square meter and taxa of insects taken during a survey of headwater streams in the Toolik Lake region during the summer of 2001, Arctic LTER 2001.
A Surber sampler (25 X 25 cm frame fitted with a 243 um mesh net) was used to sample invertebrates on a single date at each site. Five replicates were taken from at least two riffles at each site. Samples were preserved in 4% formaldehyde and transported to Orono, Maine, where invertebrates were removed by hand under 15X magnification and then identified and counted. All values are the mean of five replicates and have been converted to individuals per square meter.
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..
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.
