3. Name at least three forms of chlorine that are used in the disinfection stage in wastewater treatment.
1. Incomplete metamorphosis
2. Order Ephemerotera, Order Plecoptera, and Order Trichoptera??
3. Chlorine, chloramine, bleach, ammonia??

Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, freshwater, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I know stuff about oceanography, saltwater, birds, and fossils, yay for the third time!

1. Good.
2. Odonata (dragonflies) instead of Trichoptera
3. I don't have chloramine in my notes, so it might be acceptable. I was looking for Calcium chloride or Chlorine dioxide along with chlorine and bleach. Also, ammonia isn't a form of chlorine...

1. What is the difference between hydrophytes and hydroseres?
2. Name 3 things that are removed in the filtration stage of potable water treatment.
3. Identify this macroinvertebrate.

1. Hydrophytes are partially or totally submerged plants while hydroseres are a ecological succession
2. Sand, gravel, charcoal
3. Deer fly

My notesheet says differently but I guess I should have checked my sources... you're right about that first one.
The second one is right too but the third is horsefly larvae.

a. What is the common name of this organism?
b. What region is this organism native to?
c. Why is this organism of serious concern in the Great Lakes region of North America?
d. This organism is known for competing against other smaller fish for resources and space. Would it be considered a keystone species?

1. Spiny Water Flea
2. Northern Europe
3. It eats an abundance of zooplankton, which is a keystone species. They have spines that render them inedible for many fish. 
4. No

1. What is the common name of this species?
2. Is the organism above male or female. How can you tell? 
3. Do adult males or adult females live longer?
4. How does light pollution impact this organism?

3. Do adult males or adult females live longer?
4. How does light pollution impact this organism?
1. Dobsonfly
2. Male, longer antennae and generally bigger
3. Females
4. Dobsonflies are strongly attracted to light *insert moth meme lol* so light pollution could disrupt their activities
Just a thought, could we steer clear of having 4 questions only about ID? This is not an ID event, there is a whole other part of it, plus there are many division B competitors here that don't have or need extra information about the organisms, so this doesn't benefit them.
