ABSTRACT

A comparative analysis of structural pattern of macrozoobentos communities as bioindicators of water quality (WQ) in water bodies of the Berezina River basin was carried out. Two types of metrics were analyzed: those based on species richness and diversity and based on the ratio of abundance of tolerant (intolerant) species and common abundance. The first was characterized by lesser sensitivity to the changes in WQ in gradient of sites studied. Multimetric indices calculated for the first type of metrics give a more accurate assessment of WQ.
