Inferring pollution states based on community structure of Benthic Macroinvertebrates in streams

Dong-Hwan Kim, Mi-Young Song and Tae-Soo Chon

Community structure is suitable for characterizing pollution states under field conditions

Species Abundance Distribution (SAD) models fit two main groups, weak and strong pollution

The parameter, γ, in the log-normal distribution, differs between strong and weak pollution groups

Low coefficients of variation in SAD slopes distinguish less and slightly polluted states within the weak pollution group

Mixture of log-normal distribution with geometric series distinguishes polluted from severely polluted within the strong pollution group
