Skunk River Invertebrates, Drift Invertebrates, Lotic Insect Drift
Invertebrate drift was collected weekly from four sites on the Skunk River in the summer of 1971. Drift was composed primarily of lotic insects. The composition and abundance of drift was related to predominant substrate types and water quality. There was a significant (P =.05) negative correlation between drift density and discharge at sites with sand bottom sediments, but drift density was not related to discharge at sampling areas with gravel and rubble substrates.
