The Guide to Colorado Birds. Though it is not as comprehensive as I had hoped, it is still an excellent guide to identifying the many insects of this beautiful state. It is separated into easy to navigate sections and has lots of great pictures of the insects in various habitats, larval stages, settings, etc. I would definitely recommend it to those looking to learn more about the state and the insects that call it home. 4 people found this helpful.

Mountain stream insects of Colorado. Published by Thriftbooks. However, there is an excellent introduction with some guiding principles of ecology and the illustrations throughout the book are excellent. com User, 11 years ago. This is a nice little book. It's not exhaustive and it is limited to mountain stream insects of Colorado (just like the title says!). I find it a useful compliment to other, more technical books - especially for teaching newcomers in the lab about insect anatomy. It's worth every cent, but it won't answer all of your questions.

An Illustrated Guide to the Mountain Stream Insects of Colorado. Boris C. Kondratieff, James V. Ward. Applicability of ecological theory to riverine ecosystems. James V. Ward, Christopher Thomas Robinson, Klement Tockner. The conceptual foundations of lotic ecology were derived from diverse sources over a relatively long period (MINSHALL 1988). How do the most influential of the concepts dealing with fluvial system. More). The control of stream discharge by man made dams has been practiced for millennia (Smith 1971), yet recognition of the often dramatic ecological changes in downstream lotic reaches has been slow.

Although water pollution controls such as water treatment plant has helped lessen the problem, several miles of streams are still impacted by mixture of different pollutants. of low dissolved oxygen, fish kills, algal blooms and bacterial contamination. Although water pollution controls such as water treatment plant has helped lessen the problem, several miles of streams are still impacted by mixture of different pollutants. This affects the ability of people to use the water for valuable purposes. The fundamental function of the wastewater treatment plantis to speed up the environmental procedures by which water purifies itself.

This is a comprehensive resource on the biology, ecology, and systematics of aquatic insects of Rocky Mountain streams. This richly illustrated and up-to-date volume includes descriptions of mountain stream ecosystems and habitats; simplified identification keys to the insects of Colorado Mountain streams; clear, well-labelled drawings; and an extensive bibliography. Species' distributions by drainage basin are provided for mayflies, stoneflies and caddisflies, the three orders for which such data are available.

Obviously this is not a book for everyone. I do think it would be useful to anyone from the Rocky Mountains and not just Colorado. For the price it is the best book to have with you on a field trip and most of the other people I know (a narrow group to be sure) carry it with them along with their collecting equipment. I volunteer as a monitor for wildland restoration projects and we are interested to see what positive impact we are having on stream health. One of the flags of success is a healthly aquatic insects community. It is a good starter book before one gets really serious and pops for a $100+ book on benthic organisms.

Very comprehensive, with keys. Though, I found the keys more useful for verifying my results from other keys. Probably useful in the states a little north and south along the Rocky Mountains.
  • Iaiastta
Great introductory general information - very insightful. Great entomology reference.
  • Pettalo
Indispensable for anyone who ties his own flies for fishing in the Rockies.
  • Leceri
Saves tremendous time and energy, easy to find all we were looking for quickly! Fun to use!

Thank you,
