There is a section that requires all macroinvetebrates from the survey to be listed. The VAD has drop-downs
of the taxonomic names listed by their tolerance.
To satisfy the requirements of the database enter the rating of Optimal, Suboptimal, Marginal or Poor for
Level-1 if you used data sheets prior to 2010. The most recent data sheets use number scales typical of most
biosurveys; the numbers should be entered instead of the rating.
