Small-scale variability of benthic macroinvertebrates distribution and its effects on biological monitoring

Alex Laini, Alessio Vorti, Rossano Bolpagni and Pierluigi Viaroli

The precision of a macroinvertebrate multimetric index (MMI) was assessed by means of resampling methods.

MMI was highly affected by the heterogeneous distribution of taxa, especially with respect to abundance-based metrics.

The doubling of the sampling effort does not increase the precision of the MMI
