Research presentations at three meetings in November/December.

oil surfaces AFTER clean up

We have insects from Wyoming to work on over the winter, and three meetings.

First, the effects of natural gas development on the pinedale anticline project area on the macroinvertebrates of the New Fork River, near Pinedale, WY.  This meeting will reflect the findings of our recently completed report on spatial and temporal changes in macroinvertebrate assemblages and discuss them with stakeholders and developers.

Second, the annual meeting of the Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts, which is in Lander WY this year.  We will provide insights on a variety of macroinvertebrate monitoring methods for use in conservation districts’ resource management and outreach activities.

We will present some of our Yellowstone River Oil Spill observations at the a meeting of Montana Conservation Districts that are on the Yellowstone River in December. Acute and chronic effects of the addition of oil to the Yellowstone River invertebrate food webs, with implications to higher trophic levels (fish, humans, birds(?)).
