Description Biological assessment of benthic macroinvertebrate communities was completed at forested stream reference sites in three ecoregions of Washington State: Puget Lowlands, Columbia basin, and Cascades. Characteristic chemical and biological patterns were explored through reference sites within each ecoregion. Physical characteristics of the reference sites within an ecoregion were reflective of mid-order stream types and conformed, as closely as possible, to the predefined site selection criteria.
