Develop methods for monitoring macroinvertebrates and diatoms in small, sensitive, headwater streams on Mount Mansfield to characterize biotic communities along elevational gradients in streams of Mt. Mansfield, and to create an opportunity for students at Sterling College to participate in authentic research related to their programs of study.
This project intended to (1) Develop methods for monitoring macroinvertebrates and diatoms in small, sensitive, headwater streams on Mount Mansfield; (2) Collect samples of macroinvertebrates as water quality indicators and re-sample locations initially sampled in 2001; (3) Create an accurate digital mapping of stream locations; (4) Obtain high elevation geomorphological stream data; and (5) Estimate and compare the amphibian species richness of two watersheds.
