Stream benthic invertebrates are important indicators of aquatic health and have been monitored in PEI National Park to assess community diversity as well as abundance of pollution tolerant and intolerant taxa in streams. Benthic invertebrates are collected on an annual basis using the sampling methods developed by Environment Canada for the "CABIN" stream monitoring network. Samples are sorted and invertebrates are classified to the lowest possible taxomonic classification to determine abundance and biodiversity in these aquatic ecosystems. Community biodiversity is assessed using the Simpson’s reciprocal index (D).

This dataset contains information on benthic invertebrate community structure of samples collected from nearshore index monitoring stations within a Great Lake basin each year. The composition of benthic invertebrates (such as insects, worms, mussels, snails and crayfish) found in a sample is used as a biological indicator of trophic status and general environmental conditions to help understand ecosystem function, structure and change. Surveys are typically conducted in one of the Great Lakes basins each year. In most cases, five replicate samples (600 μm mesh, 9-inch ponar) were collected at each station.

This dataset contains monitoring data for benthic invertebrate communities along the Thompson River Corridor. The raw data in this dataset is used to calculate benthic invertebrate richness and the percentage of Ephemeroptera (mayflies), Plecoptera (stoneflies), and Trichoptera (caddisflies) (EPT) species (some of the most important species that indicate a healthy system). The data is collected annually in early-July at pre-determined sites along the Thompson River. Full benthic invertebrate sampling and habitat assessments are completed in accordance with CABIN protocols.

This dataset contains monitoring data for benthic invertebrate communities along the Firth River Corridor. The raw data in this dataset is used to calculate benthic invertebrate richness and the percentage of Ephemeroptera (mayflies), Plecoptera (stoneflies), and Trichoptera (caddisflies) (EPT) species (some of the most important species that indicate a healthy system). The data is collected annually in mid-July at pre-determined sites along the Firth River. Full benthic invertebrate sampling and habitat assessments are completed in accordance with CABIN protocols.

Benthic invertebrates are considered to be strong indicators of aquatic health. They can be found in all fresh water ecosystems and are sensitive to a variety of environmental disturbances. Hundreds of species inhabit our streams and rivers, some of which are known to be more sensitive than others. Monitoring the abundance and tolerant versus sensitive benthic invertebrates serves as an indicator of the health of streams and rivers.

This data was produced in 1999 by rationalizing a 48-class database into 28 distinct classes. The original database was derived from digital, multispectral Landsat Thematic Mapper data recorded between 1986 and 1997, with most of the satellite data frames recorded in the early 1990s. The resulting database includes: * vegetation types such as forests, wetlands and pasture * categories of non-vegetated surface such as waterbodies, bedrock or settlements The data reflects the nature of the land surface rather than the land use.

The Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks started a project to characterize the number of species of bumble bees and the relative abundances of these species in southwestern Ontario in support of the Pollinator Health Action Plan. Bumble bees were collected from 46 locations to compare the diversity of bees occurring in agricultural and more natural areas. The data includes: * sampling locations, including GPS coordinates and the county name * the number of bumble bee individuals sampled at each site, listed for each species and for each caste of a species (queen, worker, male) * other site details, such as the date of the site visit View this data on an interactive map This dataset is related to the following: 1. Stream Neonicotinoid Monitoring Study 2.

The attribute table included in the dataset provides some limited metadata information that is specific to each lake. This includes the: * survey year * survey method * original map scale This dataset should be used for discovery of Bathymetry data. It provides no bathymetric information, but allows users to discover where bathymetry data exists and in what format. Related datasets: * Ontario waterbody location identifer
