Heads up: (Free) Aquatic Invertebrate Identification Manual

Recommended Posts

Just discovered Guide to Aquatic Invertebrates of the Upper Midwest by R.W. Bouchard, Jr. This identification manual is targeted at students, citizen monitors, and aquatic resource professionals. Extremely well written, it includes illustrations of most aquatic invertebrate orders likely to be encountered in freshwater environments. Larvae of aquatic insect orders are keyed/illustrated to family level. This is a great find for the budget-constrained flyfisher, as it is currently available for free download.

You're welcome. Yes, that's what I did. Printed the pages two-sided, and then had it plastic-spiral-bound at Office Depot with clear plastic sheets protecting the front cover and back. Makes a very attractive and extremely useful reference.

Great reference. Thanks for posting it. The stream monitoring guide also looks interesting.

Thanks for pointing out the Stream Monitoring Guide to me. It's probably the only link on the page I hadn't actually followed, and is also extremely comprehensive and well written.
