Abstract
INTRODUCTION.\ud My work with the Middlesex University Urban Pollution Research Centre has been conducted\ud in the following areas:\ud 1 Biological Monitoring of Urban Waters\ud (Publications 1, 3, 5, 6, 25)\ud Conventional biological methods and hydrobiological indices used for assessing water quality\ud have been tested in urban streams and rivers and their limitations exposed. The impact of\ud river engineering and physical disturbance on the substrate during storm events has been\ud shown to influence significantly the index scores in addition to pollution impacts. The\ud recommendation to compare biological with physico-chemical assessment of water quality...
