Baseline Assessment of Macroinvertebrate Fauna in a First-Order Piedmont Stream.

Baseline assessment of the macroinvertebrate fauna of Cox Creek, a 4.5 km first-order urban stream in Anderson County, South Carolina was done during Fall, 2000. Organisms were collected at five stations using a Surber sampler, dipnets, and a small seine. No unusual groups were encountered, but differences in richness and abundance of macroinvertebrates were noted among the stations. Substrate variation and shoreline development are proposed as explanations for these differences. These data serve as the cornerstone of current work on macroinvertebrate colonization and productivity in the creek as well as data which can be used in assessments of development effects on the ecosystem.
