Description: “Diversity, Assemblage Structure, and Biotic Integrity of Benthic Macroinvertebrates in the Guadalupe-San Marcos River System”, thesis defense presentation by Cierra (Lexi) Smith, candidate for Master of Agriculture & Natural Resource Sciences, Tarleton State University
The research reported in this presentation was conducted in conjunction with studies of Cagle’s map turtle, a species endemic to a small area of Texas (primarily the Guadalupe-San Marcos river system) by students working with Dr. Jesse Meik (Tarleton State University, Dept. Biological Sciences). While the turtle species does not occur in the Prairie Oaks service area, the content of the presentation includes field methodologies, ecosystem characterization concepts and other topics that are relevant to study of any aquatic ecosystem.
Any Prairie Oaks members wishing to attend may contact Marsha Stephens at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange transportation to campus, as parking is restricted.
