Summary

CPCB is helping the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) by sorting and identifying macroinvertebrates that were collected in Kansas during statewide stream surveys. The main objective of these statewide stream surveys is to document the current range and distribution of stream species. Other objectives include the establishment of recent baseline data on stream fishes and macroinvertebrates, which will then be used to enhance stream management decisions and help in the assessment of overall conditions of Kansas streams. KDWP projects include the Upper Arkansas and Cimarron Basin, Lower Arkansas Basin, Rare Fish and Mussels, and REMAP. Noteworthy specimens and related data are then accessioned into the KBS collection. Finally, all of the resulting data are entered into an MS Access database and will eventually be made available to internet users.
