Description

This project is a product of collaboration between Utah State University art and biology students visualizing temporal and spatial data of macro invertebrates in the Logan River. Temporal data was collected as monthly samples at a single site on the Logan River, Woodcamp, between the years of 2003 - 2010. Spatial data was collected from 5 sites along the Logan River in the year 2000.The orders Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichoptera were chosen to visualize because of their high abundance and importance among many aquatic ecosystems, the Logan included. Generalized forms of the species in each order were designed to accompany the temporal data, which shows monthly and yearly changes in the density of each of these orders. Analysis of spatial data indicated that species in the orders Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichoptera were found from the headwaters of the Logan River, Franklin Basin, to Rendezvous park (the dog park in south Logan), indicating relatively high water quality.
