Indicators and methods for the ecological status assessment under the Water Framework Directive, Linkages between chemical and biological quality of surface waters

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

The Water Framework Directive (WFD) defines the ecological status of surface waters as an expression of the quality of the structure and functioning of aquatic ecosystems. This book provides an overview of current knowledge on the relationships between anthropogenic pressures and biological indicators for rivers, lakes and coastal waters. It is targeted at scientists working in environmental agencies, managers working on WFD implementation, university lecturers, students of applied ecology, water management and those interested in limnology and coastal management.
