This book provides the focal point of the European Water Framework Directive. offering insight into principles and methodologies of river assessment, covering the whole range from the definition of river typologies to specific problems such as the most appropriate taxonomic resolution and software applications. The text focuses on benthic macroinvertebrates, the taxonomic group most frequently used in bioassessment.
