This study provides information about the macroinvertebrate community and the ecological water quality of the Portoviejo River (Ecuador). Threshold Indicator Taxa Analysis was used to investigate shifts in macroinvertebrate communities along physico-chemical gradients and to define associated indicator taxa. The results are particularly useful for future decision-making and water management.
