Invertebrate (without a backbone) animals which can be seen with the naked eye. In rivers common macroinvertebrates are insects, crustaecans, worms and snails.
Used in the report to refer to aquatic insects and mollusks.
invertebrate that can be seen with the naked eye
a small sized animal without a backbone (invertebrate) that is visible to the naked eye.
invertebrate (animal without a backbone) clearly visible with the human eye
An invertebrate with a body length greater than 2 mm.
An organism that lacks a backbone and is visible without magnification. Examples include snails, worms, fly larvae, and crayfish ("crawdads").
an animal without a backbone that can be seen without the aid of a microscope
a small organism that does not have a backbone
a large invertebrate such as a crab, clam, or oyster.
lacking a backbone or spinal column such as crustaceans, worms, aquatic insects
An invertebrate animal (animal without a backbone) large enough to be seen without magnification.
Invertebrate animals (animals without backbones) large enough to be observed without the aid of a microscope or other magnification.
Animals without backbones greater than 1 millimetre long that live in the water column, on the water surface or on the bottom of a waterway.
Invertebrates visible to the naked eye, such as insect larvae and crayfish.
An aquatic invertebrate animal large enough to be seen with the naked eye. Macroinvertebrates include insects, freshwater “shrimp”, crayfish, clams, snails, and worms. An analysis of the types and numbers of macroinvertebrates present in a stream, often expressed as a biological “index”, is a very useful indicator of water quality and habitat conditions. A discussion of the macroinvertebrates found in the Kinnickinnic River can be found on the site's macroinvertebrates page.
Invertebrates that are large enough to be seen with the unaided eye; good indicators of water quality
refers to crustaceans, insects and worms lacking a spinal column that assemble in semi-permanent populations. Study of the presence of various macroinvertebrates provides a good environmental indicator of stream health because many species are known to be either pollution tolerant or intolerant.
Any nonvertebrate organism that is large enough to be seen without the aid of a microscope.
An animal, such as an insect or mollusk, that lacks a backbone or spinal column and can be seen by the naked eye.
organism that lacks a backbone and is large enough to be seen with the naked eye.
The term macroinvertebrates is traditionally used to refer to aquatic invertebrates including insects (e.g. larval Ephemeroptera and Trichoptera), crustaceans (e.g. amphipods), molluscs (e.g. aquatic snails) and worms (e.g. Platyhelminthes), which inhabit a river channel, pond, lake, wetland or ocean. Historically, their abundance and diversity have been used as an indicator of ecosystem health and of local biodiversity.
