Detail

This study investigates different approaches for streamlining the taxon lists used in the Trophic Diatom Index (TDI). The objective is to develop a shorter taxon list that has a similar ability to recognise the boundary between good and moderate ecological status of water bodies as the current taxon list, and to assess any implications for data precision.
