Diatoms/phytobenthos 2015
In compliance with the Water Framework Directive (Directive 2000/60/EC ), the diatoms are sampled as sub-element of the aquatic flora. Diatoms are particularly sensitive to saproby, trophy , acidification and salinity and allow to determine the water quality. The methodology are the standards EN 13946 "Water quality – Guidance standard for the routine sampling and pre-treatment of benthic diatoms from rivers and lakes. (revised version to be published 2014) and EN 14407 "Water quality – Guidance standard for the identification, enumeration and interpretation of benthic diatom samples from rivers and lakes" (revised version to be published 2014).
