Waimakariri Periphyton Data

Latest version published by The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) on Aug 9, 2018 The National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)

These samples were collected from three locations in the Waimakariri River as part of a biodiversity survey. Subsamples were examined at x400 and an assessment made of the relative abundance of the main taxa present, on a scale of 1 (rare) to 8 (dominant). Identifications are to genus level, and to species level for some of the diatoms.
