Description Biological assessment of 20 stream sites was completed in the Columbia Basin and Cascade ecoregions during the summer of 1993. A multi-habitat sampling protocol was used to describe benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages in riffles and pools. Synoptic taxa lists were developed for three ecoregions of Washington State. Biological condition of riffle and pool
habitat was determined for each site and ranked in two sets using several biometrics.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
