Nepal Algae 2008

Samples were collected by Ian Martin alongside invertebrate and water samples taken for his Honours project, while conducting a fishing/rafting trip in Nepal.
Sites are numbered from upstream to downstream. Sample 8 had large accumulations of Travertine, in which some of the algae were embedded.
