Hi
Does anyone know of a source for an aquatic macroinvertebrate key that’s written in Spanish?

Thanks.

Hi Kris,

I’ve sent an e-mail to our office in San Juan, PR. I’m hoping that they will get back to me soon with helpful information.

Kris, have you contacted the folks at Global Water Watch (affiliated with AL Water Watch)? gww@auburn.edu
I belive they conduct monitoring training sessions in Central America.

Hi Kris,

I have a document from Georgia Adopt-A-Stream that details chemical and biological monitoring. There is not a key, but there is some picture guides, unfortunately, now that I look at them, they are in english. the rest of the document is in Spanish and may prove helpful.

If you do find a key in Spanish, can you send it to me?

I have attached the Georgia doc to this email.

peace
Chris

Kris,
We will soon be translating our stream bioassessment manual into Spanish in preparation for some workshops in Mexico in March. This may not include a full key, but will have the principles and practice of biomonitoring, based on a modified, EPA protocol 1 (three groups of macroinvertebrates and a biotic index of WQ).

Kris,

I’m not aware of any Spanish keys, but the “Get Bugged About Water Quality” keychain/magnifier are available in Spanish (www.epa.gov/waterscience/biocriteria).

The EPA used to have small magnifying glasses attached to cards with
pictures of macros on them. They had Spanish versions. Maybe they have a
Spanish key?

Kris,

I asked Sharon Collman, our favorite ‘bug lady’ and she says that EPA has a handout available that is English and Spanish. It is not a complete list, however. If you call your EPA regional office’s PERC they might have some. If you do not have access to that number, call Region 10 at 206-553-1200 and ask for Ms. Hayslip.

Kris,
I don’t think you will find word-for-word translations for “common names”. However, the Latin taxonomy is universal! Anyway, I’ll keep checking. In the meantime, here are some Spanish translation manuals from Georgia adopt-a-stream that you may find useful

List serve folks, here is info on Spanish macroinvertebrate keys, forwarded from Manuel L. Pescador, to Dave Penrose, then to Greg Jennings and finally to Kris S & list serve participants.
Gracias!

Hi Dave:
The two publications that come to mind which have keys in Spanish are:
1. Roldan, G. 1988. Guia para el estudio de los macroinvertebrados del Departamento de Antioquia, Colombia. Fen-Colombia, Colciencias,
Universidad de Antioqua, eds. Santafe de Bogota, Colombia 217p.

2. Fernando, F., C. M. Gonzalo Andrade, and G. Amat. 2004. Insectos der Colombia. Vol. 3. Universidad Nacional de Colombia. 602 p. Both references have keys to families in Spanish. The paper by Roldan includes all the macroinverteberates while Fernando et al. paper ideals with insects both aquatic and terrestrial. I am sure there are other references on macroiinvertebrates in Latin America that I am not aware of, I will be on the look out and keep you posted. Our book on Mayflies of South America which will be published by Pensoft Publishers in Spring 2006 has keys(Families, Genera, Species) in both English and Spanish. I just finished reviewing the galley proof and we are looking forward to see copies of the book coming out soon.
Let me know if I could be of further assistance.
Hasta pronto,

Manny

Hey Manny,

Hope things are going good amigo.

I got this message today asking for bug keys in Spanish and I’m assuming
that they want something fairly general. Can you help with this? Thanks.

Dear Kris

I am writing to you because of I see your message in Internet. I have a
caddisfly larvae key from Antioquia (Colombia) and other documents.

I hope that this information can be useful for you.

Does anyone have volunteer monitoring manuals and/or other educational materials in Spanish on their websites?  Global Water Watch has some Spanish content on their website but I’m unable to find actual manuals or instructional materials in Spanish.  I’m interested in helping support an environmental education project in Chile.  Thanks!

Alice,

We have a Spanish version of the Leaf Pack Experiment manual available as a free download on the Leaf Pack Network® website: http://www.stroudcenter.org/lpn/resources/manual/
We also have a  macroinvertebrate identification key, sorting sheets and a few other macro resources in Spanish. We developed them for workshops we taught in both Costa Rica and Peru. Those resources can be found here: http://www.stroudcenter.org/research/projects/MooreFdnPeru/training.shtm

All the best,
Christina

There are some lesson plans on monitoring/watersheds that were developed for WWMC by Project WET a few years back.  They are available in Spanish at http://www.monitorwater.org/Intl_Spanish_Lesson_Plans.aspx.

Although we don’t have manuals in both languages, we have English as well as Spanish-dubbed stream monitoring training videos at: http://watermonitoring.uwex.edu/wav/monitoring/video.html

And also our key to life in the river is in Spanish: http://watermonitoring.uwex.edu/pdf/level1/riverkey-SP.jpg and in English: http://watermonitoring.uwex.edu/pdf/level1/riverkey.pdf

The Give Water a Hand Guide (produced by UW-Extension but not part of our stream monitoring program) is in both languages too: http://www.uwex.edu/erc/gwah/
