Percentage of POTEC Individuals
Taxonomic counts aggregated at the order level classification in a wide data format. Use the wide function to prepare the data.
The percentage of individuals identified as plecopterans (Order: Plecoptera), odonates (Order: Odonata), trichopterans (Order: Trichoptera), ephemeropterans (Order: Ephemeroptera), and coleopterans (Order: Coleoptera) (POTEC). This is an exploratory metric combining EPT taxa with COTE taxa. Coleopterans (Order: Coleoptera), odonates (Order: Odonata), trichopterans (Order: Trichoptera), and ephemeropterans (Order: Ephemeroptera) (COTE) were used by Kamman (2007) as a lentic benthic macroinverterbate metric.
