A biological survey of the Kansas River below the six large reservoirs was conducted during the spring, summer, and fall of 1966. Benthic and phytoplankton samples were taken and the results tabulated in conjunction with a chemical water quality study of the river. The results of the seasonal chemical and biological surveys were reported to the University of Kansas Center for Research for incorporation and use in their mathematical model of the river. Special biological studies of the upstream areas and an intensified study of the lower reach near the river's mouth were also made. A total of 175 benthic samples and 128 phytoplankton counts were processed during this study. (Author)
