Description:
Abstract:
This dataset contains the results of an aquatic invertebrate spring survey in Mono and Inyo Counties. Most springs were sampled multiple times, and each sample includes the species found, the number of each gender of each species, and the number of larvae of each species. The study focused on caddisflies, but includes data for all species of aquatic invertebrates found at each site.
Purpose:
This dataset was collected as part of the origniator's Ph.D. dissertation. Data were analyzed to examine the biogeography of aquatic inverterbrates in the region (using molecular analysis) and the effects of disturbance on aquatic invertebrate diversity and abundance.
Supplemental_Information:
See the related metadata titled "Spring Survey, Inyo and Mono County" for water quality data. Many springs in this study have not been surveyed for this data before. Four new species of aquatic invertebrates were discovered during the study (2 Lepidostoma, 1 Stygobromus and 1 Hydroptilidae).

Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Data is organized according to taxa. Each taxon ID is associated with a Spring ID, Collection Method code, date and time, #/male, #/female, #/gender unknown, and #/larvae. There are over 2000 individual entries. Approximately 200 taxa, 148 springs and 8 collection methods are included in the database. Data reside in a Microsoft Access file. All codes are defined within the file.
