The Field Guide to Freshwater Invertebrates of North America focuses on freshwater invertebrates that can be identified using at most an inexpensive magnifying glass. This Guide will be useful for experienced nature enthusiasts, students doing aquatic field projects, and anglers looking for the best fish bait, lure, or fly. Color photographs and art, as well as the broad geographic coverage, set this guide apart. 362 color photographs and detailed descriptions aid in the identification of species Introductory chapters instruct the reader on how to use the book, different inland water habitats and basic ecological relationships of freshwater invertebrates Broad taxonomic coverage is more comprehensive than any guide currently available

Flash Cards of Common Freshwater Invertebrates of North America Set One - Major Classes and Orders consists of 32 cards, 30 of which feature a high-quality scientific illustration of an organism on one side and, on the other, the common and scientific names of the organism along with basic questions and answers about the biology, ecology, and environmental tolerances of the pictured organism. In addition, a booklet containing diagrams of body structures, a glossary of terms, and suggestions for using the cards will accompany each set.Set One covers the major classes and orders of freshwater invertebrates. This set would be basic to teaching/learning biology and ecology at the K-12 levels, for interpretation and outreach activity, and for biomonitoring of freshwater streams and ponds.The 4 inch wide by 6 inch high cards are printed in full color on synthetic material with uv-resistant ink.

Flash Cards of Common Freshwater Invertebrates of North America Set Two - Families of Mollusks, Stoneflies, Mayflies, and Caddisflies consists of 32 cards, 30 of which feature a high-quality scientific illustration of an organism on one side and, on the other, the common and scientific names of the organism along with basic questions and answers about the biology, ecology, and environmental tolerances of the pictured organism. In addition, a booklet containing diagrams of body structures, a glossary of terms, and suggestions for using the cards will accompany each set. Set Two treats the taxa at the family level and thereby provides more detail which, in turn, affords the opportunity to better understand the biological diversity of freshwater systems and the changes in environmental health brought on by human activities. This set would be most useful for teaching principles of biology and ecology at advanced high school and college levels, for training instructors who would be conducting interpretation or outreach activities, and for biomonitoring carried out by experienced citizen volunteers, agency personnel, or professional scientists. The 4 inch wide by 6 inch high cards are printed in full color on synthetic material with uv-resistant ink.

Coastal wetlands are among our most important fish and wildlife habitats. For example, over two-thirds of our recreationally and commercially important marine fishes depend on coastal marshes and associated waters for nursery and spawning grounds. This book is arranged in four major sections: (1) Coastal Wetland Ecology: A General Overview, (2) Identification of Coastal Wetland Plants, (3) Wetland Plant Descriptions and Illustrations, and (4) Places to Observe Coastal Wetlands, and (5) Sources of Other Information. In addition , a list of references used in preparing this book and a glossary of technical terms are provided.

Containing habitat information, physical descriptions, photographs, and range maps for more than 150 species of freshwater fishes that can be found in Texas, this field guide is an indispensable reference and research tool for ichthyologists, professional fisheries biologists, amateur naturalists, and anglers alike. The introductory section offers an illustrated guide to the common counts and measurements used for fish identification; a brief explanation of fish phylogeny; and a scientific key to help identify the fish families in Texas. The book includes species accounts of native and introduced fishes found in the freshwaters of Texas. Each account covers the physical characteristics, habitat, and distribution of the fish, with additional comments of interest or importance to its life history and conservation status. With the largest collection to date of color photographs, including various color phases (breeding and non-breeding colors), the book also includes range maps within the species accounts. The closing pages of the book feature a glossary and reference section. In a time when the state’s water resources are beset by issues growing in both number and complexity, this book provides information for professionals and policy makers. It also contributes to the natural history education of the public. To learn more about The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment, sponsors of this book's series, please click here.

Wetlands are crucial ecosystems that help filter a great number of toxicants out of the earth's waters. They must be managed and occasionally even built from scratch, including all of the flora and fauna that grows there. Invertebrates play a key role in the wetland food chain. This comprehensive resource is the first dedicated solely to the ecology and management of invertebrates.
