Objective selection of sensitive species indicative of pollution-induced change in benthic communities. 2. Data analyses
Marine Ecology Progress Series
An objective technique for identifying potential indicator species using analyses based on the distribution of individuals among species is presented. Benthic community data from 6 different areas in N. W. Europe are analysed. In each case species indicative of environmental change in the area are identified, even from areas where such changes are small and have resulted only in minor perturbations in the local community structure. It is shown that particular species groups aredoi:10.3354/meps012237 fatcat:m6kdkeuevzh53la74dpkowamny
