Virtual Training on Macroinvertebrate Sampling (Advancing Sustainable Hydropower: Biodiversity and Management, Nepal - Virtual Webinar Series)

Date : 11-Feb-2021

Time : 19:00 – 20:30, Nepal time

Venue : Webinar (Zoom)

In addition to fish, macroinvertebrates and periphyton (benthic algae) are important components of aquatic biodiversity to sample and monitor for ESIAs since they form the basis of the aquatic food chain and also serve as indicators of ecosystem health. Aquatic scientists at Kathmandu University and Tribhuvan University have developed a field method specifically for Nepal to sample and monitor macroinvertebrates. They will present this method during the webinar, and also discuss why these organisms are important and how the data can be used for the ESIA and for long-term monitoring.
