Used for semi-quantitative analysis of benthic stream organisms, this WaterMark surber type stream bottom sampler can be used in silt or large cobble. Substrates contained within the 12" x 12" folding brass frame are agitated to dislodge insects, while water flow transports animals into plankton net.

A durable Nitex mesh net is supported by perpendicular frame members and has built-in, clear polycarbonate cod-end assembly with latex tubing and pinch clamp.

Plankton Portal enlists public to classify thousands of zooplankton images

Zooplankton drifts through the ocean, often ignored by the public in favor of more charismatic marine organisms farther up the food chain. A new crowdsourced project aims to change that, giving anyone a closer look at small and intricate zooplankton. PlanktonPortal.org features 900,000 high resolution images of zooplankton and tasks the public to identify them as part of data processing for a collaborative study, based out of the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Researchers hope the project will tell them more about zooplankton behavior, grouping and interaction.

DNA sequencing of insect soup shows biodiversity

Researchers in England devised a new method for monitoring biodiversity with an insect soup and low cost DNA sequencing, according to a University of East Anglia press release. Douglas Yu, a biology professor and the lead researcher for the study, said analyzing a few hundred ground-up bugs gives researchers equivalent data to traditional intensive methods for a fraction of the cost. He said, compared to high quality data sets analyzing 55,000 arthropods and birds, sequencing bug juice was just as effective. The researchers use a process called metabarcoding to identify bugs and biodiversity of an environment. The measurement could eventually be established as a low cost, low impact way to understand the biodiversity of a system through some of its smallest creatures.

Assessing Cumulative Risk From Water Pollutants

New research from scientists at the Environmental Working Group (EWG) shows that an approach that assesses cumulative risk from water contaminants could save lives. EWG senior scientist Tasha Stoiber spoke with EM about how the team developed the innovative new approach . “Our organization has worked extensively on tap water over the years, and an updated version of our tap water database was just released in 2017,” explains Dr. Stoiber. “We've been thinking about new ways to analyze that data.” Right now, the risk from contaminants in water quality is assessed one at a time—but that really doesn't comport with reality.
