Habitat quality and ecological status assessment for running waters_D4.4

Date: 30 August 2012

This Deliverable consists out of two main parts:

 

“Part A - Manual for the application of the new European Fish Index - EFI+“, developed by the EFI+ CONSORTIUM 2009 (“Manual for the application of the new European Fish Index – EFI+. A fish-based method to assess the ecological status of European running waters in support of the Water Framework Directive. June 2009”).

This manual describes the new European Fish Index – EFI+ - and its web-based application software.

The main parts of the EFI+ software are a section for data input and a help chapter. Data input can be done manually as well as by using a predefined Excel datasheet which can be completed by end users and uploaded for index computation.

The EFI+ software is an online tool with free access for the public.

 

“Part B - guidelines for assessing the hydromorphological status of running waters”, translation of an original document (German language) of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management, issued in March 2010. The report is related to the Austrian national guidelines describing parameters for assessing the hydromorphological status of running waters in accordance to the Water Framework Directive (WFD).
