A RTHROPODA: is an invertebrate animal with an exoskeleton, a segmented body, and jointed appendages.

At least 8 aquatic invasive species exist in Yellowstone’s waters: two mollusks, five fish, and one nonnative disease-causing microorganism (whirling disease). Three of these species are having a significant detrimental effect (lake trout, New Zealand mud snails, and whirling disease). 3 A preliminary report on the aquatic invertebrate fauna of the Yellowstone National Park, Wyo., and the Flathead region of Montana.

The Yellowstone River Basin is one of the four Montana Water Supply Initiative planning basins, and includes such major tributaries as the Bighorn, Tongue, and Powder rivers. Available below are documents relating to the Yellowstone River Basin through the two year MWSI process as well as other technical reports and documents that address water.

East i ' Introduction **%*, ^ Algae—small, often microscopic aquatic plants—are responsible for the major share of primary production within the Yellowstone River ecosystem. Together with organic matter contributed by terrestrial plants along the river banks, algae form the base of the aquatic food pyramid that culminates in the production of such con- sumers as osprey and trout or sauger. The aquatic ecological classification system we developed for the Missouri River Watershed is based on a national hierarchical framework created by The Nature Conservancy. Our Montana classification is the first Western aquatic classification to integrate biological communities with abiotic stream parameters like geology and hydrology. Element concentrations in bed sediment of the Yellowstone River basin, Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming; a retrospective analysis. Chemical data for bed sediment were analyzed as part of the U.S. Geological Survey National Water-Quality Assessment Program investigation of the Yellowstone River Basin in parts of Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming. Yellowstone River aquatic invertebrate distribution based on The Yellowstone River Basin of southeastern Montana, northern Wyoming, and western North Dakota encompasses approximately , km2 (71, square miles), 92, (35,) of them in Montana.
