Title: Thames estuary benthic programme : inferences on the pollution status of the Thames estuary from the macrobenthic community structure
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The aim of this report is to use the macrofauna community structure of sites in the Thames Estuary to make inferences on the pollution status of these sites and or the Thames Estuary as a whole. This will be undertaken by utilising a variety of statistical and analytical techniques that can be applied in order to detect stresses within a community. However, many natural stresses occur in an estuarine environment and these have to be taken into account and excluded before any effect of pollution can be determined.
