Indicator Species

Last updated 12 months ago

The term "indicator species" is given to species that give us clues about the health of the environment based on their behavior, presence or absence. For example, the presence and diversity of certain bugs can help determine the health of a river or stream.

Use this collection to learn more about selected indicator species.
