Phytobenthos in rivers
This map shows the ecological status (i.e. status or potential) of phytobenthos in European rivers (i.e. rivers and canals) potentially impacted by eutrophication. The ecological status class of a country's waterbodies (or stations) is assessed by each country according to their national classification system, following the Water Framework Directive. The assessment may be based by one or more samples measured during the year of reporting.
