Changes of stream ecology along the urbanization gradient

I. Kabelkova, G. Stastna, D. Stransky & L. Malec
A study analyzing changes of the ecological status of a small stream (the Botic, Prague) along the urbanization gradient is carried out in order to identify major deficits and their causes. Quantitative assessment of benthic invertebrate fauna, river ecomorphology and water quality is being performed. Results show a serious ecological degradation of the whole Botic Stream (benthic index of biotic integrity indicates a very poor, poor and only once fair status) due to the combined...
