Background For Teachers:
Note that there are many other arguments for and against a new reservoir that do not relate specifically to biodiversity. These include economic opportunity (irrigation or drinking water) versus economic losses (flooded communities or cost of construction), recreational opportunities (boating and fishing), and opportunities for developers (water front housing), aesthetic considerations and more.
Other Stream Side Science activities such as That's Predictable and Missing Macroinvertebrates may be helpful for the students to review how ecosystems change due to various factors.
More information about dams can be found on the internet sites listed on the Teacher Resource pages.
