Abstract

Indicator valences, taking into account the regional features of the middle and lower Volga River basin of water quality classes for the benthofauna of lowland rivers, are calculated. The lists of 450 species that can be used to indicate pollution are given. An advanced method of estimating bioindication factors of bottom organisms is used. The results of calculations can be used for the quality intercalibration of the surface water of lotic systems.
