Data Extent

Invertebrate abundance and biomass data from Big Creek tributaries (1988-2012)

Data presented here are from a long-term project that has been monitoring benthic invertebrate abundance and biomass in 7 streams within the Big Creek watershed. The study streams are Rush Creek, Pioneer Creek, Cave Creek, Cliff Creek, Goat Creek, Cougar Creek, and Big Creek mainstem (Big Creek Above Rush). All sites are located near the Taylor Wilderness Research Station in the Frank Church Wilderness Area, Idaho. Sites were sampled during the summer (July) from 1988 to 2012. In a given year, typically five (occasionally more) replicate samples were collected in each stream via Surber net and analyzed for benthic invertebrate abundance and biomass.
