Quantifying species indicator values for trophic diatom indices: a comparison of approaches

  title={Quantifying species indicator values for trophic diatom indices: a comparison of approaches},
  author={Marina G. Potapova and Donald F Charles and Karin C. Ponader and D. Michael Winter},
This study compares two approaches for constructing diatom-based indices for monitoring river eutrophication. The first approach is based on weighted averaging of species indicator values with the underlying assumption that species have symmetrical unimodal distributions along the nutrient gradient, and their distributions are sufficiently described by a single indicator value per species. The second approach uses multiple indicator values for individual taxa and is based on the possibility… CONTINUE READING
