Aquatic macroinvertebrate identification

We provide a comprehensive range of services in aquatic biology that are based principally upon the accurate identification of aquatic biota to a defined taxonomic level and the accurate and precise estimates of their diversity and abundance from representative samples.

Our biomonitoring and aquatic ecology team provide environmental assessment of rivers, streams, lakes & wetlands by monitoring the diversity and abundance of macroinvertebrates and other aquatic biota as indicators of aquatic ecosystem health.

Taxonomic resolution at species level enables us to provide you with important information about which species are most affected by various disturbances as well as increasing our overall understanding of biological processes that are occurring within a watercourse.

Biomonitoring services may be applied to biodiversity assessments and environmental flow studies, or may be combined with chemical and physical characteristics to provide an overall assessment of water quality and environmental impacts.
