Flood at University of Oklahoma Biological Station

Flood at University of Oklahoma Biological Station

The University of Oklahoma Biological Station near Lake Texoma on the state’s southern border found itself in the middle of a once-in-a-century flood in June 2015. Three months earlier, researchers there had sampled the insect and invertebrate community in the area, and later sampling found a 93 percent decrease in abundance, a 60 percent decrease in species presence, and a 64 percent decrease in biomass among insects and other invertebrates nine months post-flood.
