Aquatic Insects

  • Aquatic Insects from North Dakota Rivers and Streams (3833)

    This website is an identification key designed to use the advantages of a digital format to provide pictures and information to aid in insect identification. The web site currently goes to the family level with description pages for every family. These pages include descriptions of the group, notes on the groups ecology, and range maps for the state of North Dakota. (8/6/2002)

  • Pennsylvania Aquatic Insects (3775)

    This web site from Penn State University is a vast resource of information on aquatic insects. Users can search or browse the database for an insect species and view maps of the selected species distribution within Pennsylvania, or all of North America. The site has recently added some radar images of a Mayfly emergence, complete with a detailed description to help interpret the images. Those visitors interested in trout fishing may appreciate the two pages on tying flies that can be found by navigating through the section entitled How to Use Site.From The NSDL Scout Report for the Life Sciences, Copyright Internet Scout Project 1994-2002.

  • A Checklist of the Insects of North America (6293)

    Nomina Insecta Nearctica is a complete synonymical checklist of the approximately 90,000 species of insects of North America north of Mexico published by Entomological Information Services in 1996 and 1997.

  • Key to Aquatic Macroinvertebrates (6785)

    Produced by the Stream Biomonitoring Unit of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, this key is a pictorial method of identifying aquatic macroinvertebrates. It is structured so the major groups of aquatic macroinvertebrates can be accurately identified primarily on the basis of photographs instead of traditional written keys that often require the knowledge of unfamiliar terminology. In the future, photographs of selected families, genera and species of macroinvertebrates will be added to the site. (4/20/2001)

  • The Wonderful Caddis Worm: Sculptural Work in Collaboration with Trichoptera (1686)

    Since the early 1980s, artist Hubert Duprat has been utilizing insects to construct some of his "sculptures." By removing caddis fly larvae from their natural habitat and providing them with precious materials, he prompts them to manufacture cases that resemble jewelers' creations. Information theory, as explained by biologists such as Jacques Monod and Henri Atlan, helps us understand what seems to be the insect's aesthetic behavior. The activities of the caddis worm, as manipulated by Hubert Duprat, are prompted by the "noise"---beads, pearls and 18-karat gold pieces---introduced by the artist into the insect's environment. This article is based on a conversation between the artist and art critic Christian Besson. (4/26/1999)
