A CIESE Collaborative Project

Frank J. Smith School, East Hanover, New Jersey

Our Hypothesis: The macro invertebrates found in Burnham Pond are different from those found in ponds around the world.

The samples were small and fit into four shallow aluminum pans.

In our samples we found: 2 dragon fly nymphs, 2 Damsel fly nymphs, 1 pond snail, 3 tiny tadpoles, 3 insect larva, 1 beetle larva, and 3 scuds.
