Adaptations of freshwater invertebrates

The physical condition in a river and pond can be measured such as velocity and temperature. Then the animals found within the water can be examined and their adaptations linked to the measurements made. Biotic data, such as Biotic index for pollution levels can also be collected.

For a really in-depth study with the older children, food chains could be followed with pyramids of numbers and biomass being generated. Analysis of the data covers a number of mathematical criteria.

Both stream and pond sites are available.
