Illinois Waters Bibliography: Biological Stream Characterization (1984 - 2007)

A directory of documents on Illinois waters


The Biological Stream Characterization (BSC) Work Group was formed in May 1984 by stream biologists at the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and Illinois Department of Conservation (Hite & Bertrand, 1989). INHS researchers starting with R. W. Larimore participated in the Work Group and Stream characterization effort. Work Continued through 2007, with more stream segments evaluated and revisions to the classification system to include additional taxa and refined measures of diversity and integrity.
