The basic approaches employed are 1) recognition of indicator species, 2) recognition of changes, usually reduction, in community diversity and 3) construction of biological indices, combining knowledge of 1) and/or 2) and taking into account changes in species abundance. These approaches employ invertebrates because of their immobility and longevity, and rely on a detailed body of… CONTINUE READING
