  • Causes of ecological degradation in waterways

    Human activities can have a multitude of different effects on rivers and streams, and it is difficult to identify those that have the biggest impact on aquatic populations. A newly developed method for assessing ecological degradation in waterways helps deal with this problem and could provide crucial information for water managers charged with tackling the root causes of degradation. In the EU, ...

  • Testing ecological toxicity in rivers

    Water quality in rivers is commonly classified according to its physical and chemical properties, but this may not fully describe its biological health. Polish researchers have tested a new method of water assessment, which looks at the toxicity to organisms of not just water, but also sediment and floodplain soil samples. This provides a more complete picture of a river's health and may help ...
