Xerces society logo
With efficient and cost effective tools to assess the overall health of a wetland lacking, the Xerces society of invertebrate conservation set out on a project to create an invertebrate based index of biological integrity for use in assessing wetlands in the Pacific Northwest. The area within the RCESC was used as a data collection site, along with others, for this study.
