Description:

This exercise in community ecology can be carried out in mid-winter and introduces participants to useful taxonomic and statistical procedures. Species determinations of winter stoneflies are facilitated by a computerized key featuring color illustrations. Taxonomic data are used to construct a two-dimensional ordination of the communities from which specimens were collected. Correlations are then sought between differences exhibited by communities and gradients of environmental conditions.
