They live on and under submerged logs, rocks, and aquatic plants on the beds of rivers and streams during some part of their life cycle. ; Statzner, B. Abstract Benthic macroinvertebrates are the group of organisms most widely used for assessment of water resources. The statements, opinions and data contained in the journals are solely The use of biological assessment is often both a practical and powerful way to measure the health of an ecosystem.One common biological assessment used to measure the health of streams and small rivers around the world is sampling benthic macroinvertebrates. Hill, B.H. ; Rankin, E.T. In. Attributes of different biological assemblages used in freshwater biomonitoring programs. Resh, V.H. de Pauw, N.; Gabriels, W.; Goethals, P.L.M. They are large enough to see with the naked eye (macro) and have no backbone (invertebrate). For all combinations of the metrics found to be suitable according to this criterion, a redundancy test was performed to detect redundant metrics in the index, using Pearson’s correlation analysis. Karr, J.R. The discriminatory power of each remaining metric was determined according to the degree of overlap of medians and interquartile ranges [, A multimetric index should include metrics reflecting ecological characteristics, and be able to indicate potential stressor–specific relationships [, The final multimetric index was constructed from a combination of the core metrics selected through the metric selection procedure. Monitoring gaps for benthic invertebrates of lakes and rivers are largely related to the need for harmonized sampling design and method. A macroinvertebrate multimetric index to evaluate the biological condition of streams in the Central Amazon region of Brazil. ; Johnson, B.R. ; Chon, T.S. These include the Total Biotic Score (TBS) [. Metcalfe, J.L. High correlation coefficients (, Box-and-whisker plots, which enabled visualization of variations in the metric ranges, were used to estimate the ability of metrics to discriminate reference and impaired sites. Three replicate samples, randomly taken at each riffle or gliding run within a 100 m reach, were pooled in a 500 mL plastic bottle to which 80% ethanol was immediately added. ; Han, S.C.; Hwang, I.C. ; Won, D.H.; Byun, M.S.
