Description of Datasource: The SCI is a composite macroinvertebrate metric for use in flowing streams. Sampling consists of 20 sweeps of the most productive habitats found in a 100-meter stretch of stream using a dip net. BioRecon is the screening tool version of the SCI. Only four dip-net sweeps of the most productive habitats are sampled, and the organisms are sorted in the field and identified in the laboratory. Thresholds specific to this method have been established.
