The macroinvertebrate fauna of littoral and bottom substrata as a tool for biotypology of frisian waters


, : The macroinvertebrate fauna of littoral and bottom substrata as a tool for biotypology of frisian waters. Hydrobiological Bulletin 21(2): 181-192

During a biotypological research of surface waters in the province of Friesland, The Netherlands, the macroinvertebrate fauna was sampled, both from the littoral and bottom substrata. Results of this investigation in different types of water on 60 and 55 stations in 1981 and 1982, respectively, are presented. The species richness in the littoral samples exceeded that of the bottom samples, and the samples per station had relatively few species in common. Even in many cases the most abundant taxon was a different one in both samples of the same spot. With multivariate analysis of the data sets from bottom, littoral and total samples a fairly good resemblance was found between these data sets. It is concluded that the semi-quantitative processing of macroinvertebrate fauna data leads to reliable results. One can use one sample per station, wherein different substrata are combined. Distinct clusters were recognized in more extreme environmental conditions such as brackish and acid waters. With the help of the macroinvertebrate fauna the other types of water could not easily be differentiated.
