The process of conducting a stream survey involves collection of general information from maps and other sources and the direct observation of stream characteristics in the field. This information is both collected and analyzed based on a hierarchical system of regions, basins, streams, reaches, and habitat Size: 7MB. Percent of total stream width in pools.

The B-IBI is an overall assessment of stream habitat based on the macroinvertebrate community condition. Several measures or metrics (usually 10) are used to calculate the B-IBI, which is a single number. Scores for each metric are 1, 3, or 5 and are summed to generate a total score.
