Aquatic macroinvertebrates:
taxa list for the Western Lake Superior Basin

In 1997 and 1998 Valerie Brady, a stream ecologist and scientist at NRRI, collected and identified aquatic macroinvertebrates from 48 2nd and 3rd order streams that drain directly into Lake Superior between Grand Marais, MN and Ashland, WI.

She has provided us with a list of all macroinvertebrate taxa collected (128 KB EXCEL spreadsheet). Included are collection methods and a taxa list complete with common names, habitats, and functional attributes.
