Abstract

Since the square-foot bottom sampler was described by Surber it has been the principle instrument used for quantitative studies of the bottom fauna in riffle areas of streams. However, little has been written concerning the actual number of square-foot samples necessary to describe stream bottom fauna in terms of the number or volume of organisms.
