BIOL 405L: Insect Ecology & Diversity

Associate Professor of Biology Dr. Alyssa Anderson and students from her BIOL 405 Insect Ecology & Diversity Lab collected aquatic insect samples in the Redwood River at Camden State Park.

“By assessing the aquatic insect community within streams or rivers we can get a good idea for the health and quality of those systems,” said Dr. Anderson. So, by looking for their presence, absence, abundance and diversity – basically who is there and who is not – we can get a good feel for the health of river systems.”

The samples collected by the students follow techniques and protocol developed by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
