An Illustrated Guide to Some Common Diatom Species from South Africa




Diatoms provide a valuable and well-understood means of biomonitoring – one which is focused at the base of the aquatic foodweb and highly representative of water quality. Although the need for careful microscopic examination and taxonomic identification of species is somewhat demanding, the technique is intended to provide a ‘fourth leg’ to the River Health Programme suite of monitoring tools (currently invertebrates, vegetation and fish).
