Oligochaetes, organic sedimentation, and trophic state: how to assess the biological recovery of sediments in lakes?

Abstract

Oligochaete communities were used to assess the biological recovery of sediments after the abatement of eutrophication in Lake Geneva (Switzerland). In 1995, mean relative abundance of oligotrophic worm species (OS) was around 30% in areas of low organic sedimentation (LOS) whereas, in areas of high organic sedimentation (HOS), it was below 15%.
