Do Dams Stimulate Drought Conditions Downstream for Macroinvertebrate Communities?

The goal of this project is to compare how climate change might impact Benthic Macroinvertabrates (BMI’s) in rivers and streams by studying the health of natural communities in a drought and communities below dams. We investigated the diversity, richness and evenness of macroinvertebrates to see if they have been affected by the recent drought and dam conditions.
