Project: Biological assessment of sediments in Flemish rivers.
- project duration
- 16-OCT-00 – 15-JUL-01
- In this project, the officially accepted TRIAD river assessment method in Flanders will be evaluated and optimized with regard to the Biotic Sediment Index (BSI) and the percentage mentum deformations in chironomus (Diptera, Chironomidae). Research on the integrated optimization of the sampling and analysis process, the similarity and complementarity of the BSI and BBI (Belgian Biotic Index), as well as the applicability of the BSI in brackish water will be emphasized.
