Development of a biotic index for Karun River, Iran, based on macroinvertebrate and fish assemblages

Acronimo JRPIRCH

Abstract The main goal of this research is defining benthic index and indices of biotic integrity (IBI) based on macroinverte-brate and fish assemblages for the Karun River, South-Western Iran. More specifically, we aim to integrate multiple biological indicators to measure and communicate the biological condition of a Karun river, and thereby the ecological health of that water body. The partnership between Switzerland (SUPSI) and Isfahan University of Technology (IUT) offers opportunities for students, faculty and researchers to benefit from and contribute to the development of new knowledge urgently required for the management of the Karun River and similar river systems.
