    Abstract: The management of crop residues remains a major concern for the populations of regions with strong agricultural activity, because their poor management is often a source of disease. Also the absence of a consolidated database of the quantities of agricultural waste actually produced in the localities makes it difficult to exploit them. This work ai... Show More

    Abstract: Rapid bioassessment protocols (RBP) have been used widely to assess and compare benthic macro invertebrate communities, often in the context of determining impacts from impairments to water quality. Given that a relatively small sample of 100 organisms often was used to calculate various biological metrics, the question of how frequently difference... Show More
