Biotope monitoring - how diverse are the EdenDTC sub-catchments?

Biotope monitoring – how diverse are the EdenDTC sub-catchments?

As part of the on-going monthly monitoring we wanted to better understand the diversity and variability of organisms within each stream. The focus is on the attached algal communities covering the rocks, which are made up mainly of single-celled diatoms. Diatoms are highly sensitive to changes in their environment, such as the concentration of nitrogen […]

Understanding how organisms living within streams respond to changes in water quality is a vital part of the Eden DTC project.
