  1. A preliminary benthic macroinvertebrate index of biotic integrity (B-IBI) for monitoring the Moiben River, Lake Victoria Basin, Kenya

    A preliminary benthic macroinvertebrate index of biotic integrity (B-IBI) for monitoring the Moiben River, Lake Victoria Basin, Kenya

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    A Benthic Index of Biotic Integrity (B-IBI) was developed for the Moiben River. The index assesses effects of human disturbance on the biotic condition of stream macroinvertebrate communities. Eight stations were selected to represent different land-use types including forestry, settlement,...
  2. Macroinvertebrate assemblages as biological indicators of water quality in the Moiben River, Kenya

    Macroinvertebrate assemblages as biological indicators of water quality in the Moiben River, Kenya

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    Benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages at eight stations in the Moiben River, corresponding to different catchment land uses, were assessed in 2006 as indicators of water quality. The relative abundance per taxon, diversity index, richness index, evenness, dominance, percentage of five dominant...
  3. Improving the performance of the EPT Index to accommodate multiple stressors in Afrotropical streams

    Improving the performance of the EPT Index to accommodate multiple stressors in Afrotropical streams

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Aquatic Science
    The EPT index (Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera) may be skewed by the wide tolerance to multiple stressors of the Baetid, Caenid and Hydropsychid families, which affects the performance of the EPT index as an indicator of multiple stressors in aquatic...
