One of the best known aquatic macroinvertebrates are dragonfly nymphs, which are terrific predators and environmental indicators.  Zebra mussels are one of the more infamous members of this group. Jim will discuss these and many other macroscopic animals that live on the bottom of our lakes, ponds, streams and rivers. In fact, until Jim’s book, Aquatic Macroinvertebrates of Illinois was published, there was not a straight forward identification  guide for macro invertebrates. For more information visit
