  We developed a phytoplankton index of biotic integrity (P-IBI) for a German lowland river to assess effects of human disturbances on the biotic condition of riverine phytoplankton community. Six metrics (out of 36 original metrics) were selected from a training data set, based on Cumulative_ R 2 and correlation index (CoI) between biotic Cited by: An index of biological integrity (IBI), also called an index of biotic integrity, is a scientific tool typically used to identify and classify water pollution problems, although there have been some efforts to apply the idea to terrestrial environments. An IBI associates anthropogenic influences on a water body with biological activity in the water body, and is formulated using data developed.

An index of biotic integrity (IBI) was developed for freshwater fish in New Zealand streams. Data on freshwater fish occurrence for sites over the entire country were obtained from the New.

Research Technical Completion Report 14–08–G–06, Idaho Water Resources Research Institute, . biotic integrity of streams. Efforts to assess the quality of our nation's water resources have focused primarily on physical and chemical water quality parameters, with the assumption that as these criteria improved, improvements in biotic integrity would follow (Karr et al. ). Benthic Index of Biotic Integrity The Benthic Index of Biotic Integrity (BIBI) measures the condition of the benthic community (e.g. clams and others) living in or on the soft bottom areas of the Bay. These organisms are a key food source for many species including perch, spot, and croaker.

This book examines the application of fish community characteristics to evaluate the sustainability and biological integrity of freshwaters. Topics include perspectives on use of fish communities as environmental indicators in program development, collaboration, and partnership forming; influence of specific taxa on assessment of the IBI; regional applications for areas where the IBI had not. 50 J.
