European river plant communities: the importance of organic pollution and the usefulness of existing macrophyte metrics

European river plant communities: the importance of organic pollution and the usefulness of existing macrophyte metrics

Hydrobiologia 566: 211-234

The macrophyte surveys undertaken as part of the EU-funded STAR project are a unique resource allowing aquatic plant communities to be studied at a Pan-European scale (211 stream sites with macrophytes in 14 countries). Using this dataset, we examined the influence of organic pollution in relation to other environmental correlates of river plant community variation across Europe.
