‘Flood at University of Oklahoma Biological Station’

Flood at University of Oklahoma Biological Station

Researchers at the University of Oklahoma Biological Station near Lake Texoma on the state’s southern border sampled insects and invertebrates in the area three, six, and nine months after a once-in-a-century flood struck in June 2015. Compared to sampling conducted before the flood, they 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.
