Really, Ecology is being tentatively replaced by Water Quality. WQ is usually a four-way mixture of estuarine ecology, macroinvertebrate identification, the build of a salinometer and water remediation. So yes, ecology is being molded into a new event that does keep some old aspects but adds in new flavors.

Do you realize that Water Quality, save the identification of macroinvertebrates, the building of a salinometer and water remediation, is basically the ecology of estuaries? If not, then you are in the wrong event.

I suppose that you could also see macroinvertebrates in an ecology test too, since there is some identification of animals or organisms in their stated biome/ecosystem...

I understand that, but water quality relates to just water, while ecology covers a wider range. Still, I see how its related. Ya, quizbowl u r rite, water quality is related to ecology but only in certain topics.
