I continued studying streams for my Master’s Thesis. I related the diversity of benthic macroinvertebrates with the heterogeneity of substrate particle size. This is where I learned to pick and identify stream bugs. It’s good for every ecologist to have had to enumerate and identify at least one taxon exhaustively, as it gives you a good perspective on biodiversity.
