Integrated ecological assessment methods as a basis for sustainable catchment management

Integrated ecological assessment methods as a basis for sustainable catchment management

Hydrobiologia 422/423: 389-412

Eight major groups of assessment techniques are distinguished: indices (saprobic, diversity, biotic), multimetrics and rapid techniques, physico-ecological, catchment scale, ecosystem components, assemblage/community, process, and non-taxonomic assessment. An increasing refinement is observed in objectives, measures and complexity, and a decreasing one in levels of scale, stream type and, more often, taxonomy. The applied algorithms were typically restricted to single summary measures.
