Guide to British Freshwater Macroinvertebrates for Biotic Assessment

The book provides straight forward guidance to the identification of macroinvertebrate families included in biotic assessment in the UK, including flatworms, annelids, molluscs, larger crustaceans, arachnids and all orders of aquatic insects. By including appropriate methods of investigation for different groups, including dichotomous keys, pictorial guides and tables, and general tips on identification this guide allows rapid and confident identification of the major groups of British freshwater invertebrates. An extensive list of keys and guides for further identification is also provided.

In order to supplement this information, copious line drawing illustrations have been designed to show both the appearance of whole animals and, where appropriate, key identifiable features. For each group of invertebrates, a brief indication of typical habitat is given in order to further facilitate identification.

This clear and concise guide is aimed towards anyone interested in undertaking biological surveys, and as a helpful introduction to the identification of freshwater invertebrates.
