SET TWO and SET THREE treat the taxa at the family level and thereby provide more detail which, in turn, affords the opportunity to better understand the biological diversity of freshwater systems and the changes in environmental health brought on by human activities. These sets would be most useful for teaching principles of biology and ecology at advanced high school and college levels, for training instructors who would be conducting interpretation or outreach activities, and for biomonitoring carried out by experienced citizen volunteers, agency personnel, or professional scientists.

In Set Two, a single card is devoted to each of the following invertebrates:


Viviparid snails; Pleurocerid snails; Ancylid snails; Planorbid snails; Lymnaeid snails; Physid snails; Mussels; Fingernail or pea clams; Asian clam; Zebra mussel; Roachlike stoneflies; Giant stoneflies; Common stoneflies; Perlodid stoneflies; Winter stoneflies; Common burrower mayflies; Small squaregill mayflies; Spiny crawler mayflies; Flatheaded mayflies; Pronggilled mayflies; Small minnow mayflies; Micro caddisflies; Saddlecase maker caddisflies; Giant case maker caddisflies; Common netspinner caddisflies; Fingernet caddisflies; Trumpet net, tubemaker caddisflies; Freeliving caddisflies; Longhorned case maker caddisflies; Northern case maker caddisflies.
