Invertebrate bioindicators are too much work: new research from Rooney Lab

Figure 2 from the paper shows the overlap in community composition among wetlands in highly disturbed & reference landscapes

New research published from the Rooney Lab highlights the weak relationship between aquatic macroinvertebrate community structure and surrounding land use in prairie pothole wetlands.  Macroinvertebrates are one of the most popular bioindicators used in freshwater ecosystems, but efforts to develop bioindicator tools with these taxa in wetlands has generated mixed results.  Recent Grad from the Rooney Lab, Jenny Gleason, suggests that the strong environmental filter of wetland hydroperiod (i.e. permanence class) may be responsible.
