Working Group

Aquatic Biology TWG

The Aquatic Biology Technical Working Group provides expert knowledge in aquatic biological sciences, including aquatic microbes, algae, aquatic plants, macroinvertebrates, zooplankton, fish, riparian vegetation, and DNA metabarcoding. The membership of this group is intentionally broad within the field of aquatic biology in order to take a wide view of the aquatic program as a whole and provide scientific guidance on design, prioritization, and data quality issues related to aquatic biology sampling.
