Science-Based IWRM Implementation in a Data-Scarce Central Asian Region: Experiences from a Research and Development Project in the Kharaa River Basin, Mongolia
Mongolia is not only a water-scarce but also a data-scarce country with regard to environmental information. At the same time, regional effects of global climate change, major land use changes, aExpand

A database of lotic invertebrate traits for North America
TLDR
This document summarizes current capabilities, research and operational priorities, and plans for further studies that were established at the 2015 USGS workshop on quantitative hazard assessments of earthquake-triggered landsliding and liquefaction in the Central American region. Expand
Traits of benthic macroinvertebrates in semi‐natural French streams: an initial application to biomonitoring in Europe
TLDR
Assessment of species traits of benthic macroinvertebrates from semi-natural reference sites indicated that the stream benthos of the 'reference sites' had a mixture of categories which confirmed theoretical predictions for temporally stable and spatially variable habitats. Expand
Biomonitoring through biological traits of benthic macroinvertebrates: how to use species trait databases?
TLDR
The species trait approach had the potential to evaluate the actual state of ecosystems, to discriminate among different types of human impact, and to develop monitoring tools considering the functional diversity of communities. Expand
The effects of macroinvertebrate taxonomic resolution in large landscape bioassessments: an example from the Mid-Atlantic Highlands, U.S.A.
TLDR
The results suggest that identification to the family level is sufficient for many bioassessment purposes, however, identifications to genus do provide more information in genera-rich families like Chironomidae. Expand
Taxonomic resolution of benthic macroinvertebrate communities in bioassessments
TLDR
It is concluded that biological monitoring studies yield the greatest benefits using genus- or species-level taxonomy, and a 2-tiered approach for taxonomy used in bioassessment studies is proposed, which is appropriate for different situations. Expand
Biological traits of stream macroinvertebrates from a semi-arid catchment: patterns along complex environmental gradients
Summary 1. The relationships between biological traits of macroinvertebrates and environmental characteristics were investigated in streams with contrasting physical, chemical or landscape levelExpand
Effects of Surface Gold Mining on Macroinvertebrate Communities
The increase in mining activity has resulted in a long term damage of natural resources in Mongolia such as fine sediment inputs to streams as major contributors to the degradation of freshwaterExpand
Rapid Field Assessment of Organic Pollution with a Family-Level Biotic Index

Tolerance values for families of arthropods are presented to enable calculation of a family-level biotic index (FBI) in the field. In six streams differing in substrates and degree of organicExpand
Stream invertebrate communities of Mongolia: current structure and expected changes due to climate change
TLDR
Higher distinctness of stream communities is due to lower connectivity between the drainages of the two major Mongolian watersheds, where connectivity of streams between sub-drainages is an important element structuring their communities. Expand
The performance of a new biological water quality score system based on macroinvertebrates over a wide range of unpolluted running-water sites
Abstract The occurrence of families of macroinvertebrates has recently been used as the basis for the BMWP (Biological Monitoring Working Party) system of assigning scores to lotic sites. In thisExpand
