Assessing river biotic condition at a continental scale: a European approach using functional metrics and fish assemblages (2006)
Journal Article
Pont, D., Hugueny, B., Beier, U., Goffaux, D., Melcher, A., Noble, R., …Schmutz, S. (2006). Assessing river biotic condition at a continental scale: a European approach using functional metrics and fish assemblages. The journal of applied ecology, 43(1), 70-80. doi:10.1111/j.1365-2664.2005.01126.x

1. The need for sensitive biological measures of aquatic ecosystem integrity applicable at large spatial scales has been highlighted by the implementation of the European Water Framework Directive. Using fish communities as indicators of habitat qual... Read More about Assessing river biotic condition at a continental scale: a European approach using functional metrics and fish assemblages.
