and stream biomonitoring assessments
cost is variable and dependent, in part, on travel expenses, number
of sites to be assessed, the type of assessment (kick, multiplate,
ponar, etc.), and level of taxonomy required.
The pricing is dependent
and varies on the sample type (kick, multiplate, ponar), the number
of specimens to be sub-sampled, level of taxonomy required, and
reporting requirements. A typical kick sample requiring sorting,
slide mounting of necessary taxa, and identification of a 100 specimen
sub-sample identified to genera costs approximately $125.00/sample.
The cost for a one
day program is $125.00 - 500.00, dependent, in part, on travel expenses,
type and length of program, number of participants, and program
location. The cost for an MS4 outreach volunteer stream monitor
training program is similar to that for stream bioassessment training
(see below). WAA supplies all necessary equipment (collection equipment,
microscopes, and identification keys)
aquatic taxonomy training
cost for a 1 - 5 day training program (either stream bioassessment
or aquatic taxonomy) for up to 16 participants ranges between $500.00
- 13,000.00, dependent, in part, on facility location, participant
food and lodging requirements, and additional instructors (if needed).
WAA supplies all necessary equipment (collection equipment, microscopes,
and identification keys).
