Description

Principles and Methods for Determining Ecological Criteria on Hydrobiocenoses is a collection of papers presented at the 1975 European Scientific Colloquium on Principles and Methods for Determining Ecological Criteria on Hydrobiocenoses, held in Luxembourg. This Colloquium aims to define a scientific basis for assessing the results of pollution on aquatic fauna and flora, as well as the biological methods to be used in assessing the extent of such pollution.

This book is organized into four parts encompassing 29 chapters. After a brief overview of a series of parameters for the specific uses of different water classifications and regional evaluation of water pollution, this book goes on examining the ecological consequences of water pollution establishment of criteria and the ecological variable and their effect on aquatic fauna. These topics are followed by a discussion of the value of aquatic plants in water quality characterization, as well as the principles of the methods used. The succeeding parts highlight the concepts and practical methods used in the biological monitoring of surface waters. These parts particularly consider the benefits of using bioindicators and laboratory bioassays. The concluding discusses a comparative study of biological-ecological water assessment methods of water quality.

This book will be of value to environmental scientists, engineers, and researchers.
