Abstract

It is about time the assessment of trophic state in wetlands is no longer estimated through the regressions and thresholds modelled for deep-stratified lakes where sediment nutrient recycling was purposely neglected. We are in badly need of a system trophic indicator to be used as a reference for biological indicators. The recent use of biological communities (macro-invertebrates, diatoms, etc) for the evaluation of the “ecological state” of a water body implicitly requires the assessment of its “trophic state”.
