This manual describes the methods used for benthic macroinvertebrate processing, identification, and data management for Maryland Department of Natural Resources Maryland Biological Stream Survey (MBSS). It is intended to serve as the Standard Operating Procedures for Department of Navy (DNR) staff involved in benthic processing and identification as well as a guide for other organizations wishing to use comparable methods. Field methods for MBSS benthic collecting may be found in Kazyak (2000) and Boward (2000).
