ABSTRACT

On the basis of a series of indexes and quantitative characteristics of benthic and phytophilous macroinvertebrate communities, including diversity, criterial assessment of the water bodies located within boundaries of Kyiv city has been carried out. Possibility has been shown to find numerical values of reference characteristics in order to carry out comparative assessment of the water bodies’ status. Typology of the water bodies has been given and reference characteristics of key biological elements for each type have been suggested.
