Biology and Environment: Proceedings of the Royal Irish Academy 11 OB, DOI: / BIOE Received 23 November Accepted 8 January Published 28 April ABSTRACT Zooplankton communities are an important component of the pelagic food. Ecological assessment (EA) implies the monitoring of ecological resources, to discover the current and changing are required components of most hazardous waste site investigations. Such assessments, in conjunction with contamination and human health risk assessments, help to evaluate the environmental hazards posed by contaminated sites and .

EPA has been developing risk assessment guidelines primarily for File Size: 1MB. Researchers based in Ireland or working on Irish ecosystems have had a long history of association with the British Ecological Society and its journals. During his BES Presidential address the English born Amyan MacFadyen, then based in Northern Ireland, had “some thoughts on the behavior of ecologists” (Macfadyen ).

Lake ecological assessment metrics in Ireland: relationships with phosphorus and typology parameters and the implications for setting nutrient standards.

For each lake, the Ecological Quality Ratio (EQR) is calculated for each element as: observed / reference metric value.

Lowest EQR is used for assessment (including a physico- chemical EQR – not shown). EQR for Lake X. Scale may range from high status: near 1, to bad status: near 0.

Irish lakes are predominantly natural salmonid (salmon and trout) waters indicative of good ecological status. The large limestone lakes of the midlands hold good stocks of brown trout and the many thousands of smaller lakes in the upland blanket bog regions along the west coast hold stocks of brown trout, sea trout and salmon.

An ecological classification tool for fish in Irish lakes has been developed. Lake typology has been defined, based on alkalinity and maximum depth. Two separate classification models are used to produce classifications. Qualitative classification using discriminant analysis rules.

Quantitative classification using a generalised linear model with associated confidence by: The book continues to emphasize both production and assessment aspects of environmental factors, i.e., air, water, and noise, together with some interesting case studies.

The latest governmental methodologies and Environmental Impact Studies have been included in Cited by: In this study, nine national macrophyte-based approaches for assessing ecological status were compared and harmonized, using a large dataset of European lakes.

A macrophyte common metric, representing the average standardized view of each lake by all countries, was used to compare national by: 9. Nearly one hundred biological methods are currently used to assess the ecological status of European lakes. Here, using information from a questionnaire, complemented with findings from the literature, we compared the use of different methods to assess the ecological status of lakes as well as the rationale for using different organism groups (phytoplankton, benthic diatoms.

BREEAM is a sustainability assessment method, which measures sustainable value in a series of categories, ranging from energy to ecology. Each of these categories addresses the most influential factors including low impact design and carbon emissions reduction, design durability and resilience, adaption to climate change, and ecological value and biodiversity protection.

The definition of a good status is contentious, but can best be defined where ecological thresholds in the lake can be quantified (Brucet et al. Fig. Positions of different restoration.

This is an alphabetical list of loughs (lakes) on the island of also shows a table of the largest loughs. The word lough is pronounced loch and comes from the Irish loch, meaning lake. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, there are an estima lakes in the Republic of Ireland, covering an area of more than 1, square kilometres.

These aspects of lake biology are the underlying reasons why phytoplankton, macrophytes, benthic invertebrates and fish are now required for the assessment of the ecological status of lakes in Europe according to the EC Water Framework Directive (WFD): (EC, ).

Annex V of the WFD outlines the technical requirements for using various characteristics of these four biological quality elements (BQEs) in the assessment Cited by:   Ecological assessments are a critical component of land management planning and regulatory decision-making.

Overall, just under half of Irish lakes are in good condition. Irish lakes predominantly support salmon and trout fish, both of which are very sensitive to pollution. The most recent survey by the EPA placed 49% of lakes in 'high' or 'good' ecological status, while the remaining 51% of lakes were less than good quality.

Griffiths Pages The Irish Ecological Association was founded in as a learned society for ecologists working in Ireland (Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) and/or with an interest in Irish ecosystems.

The IEA works in partnership with us to strengthen networks and opportunities for ecologists and evolutionary biologists in Ireland and the UK. Ecological status is an assessment of the quality of the structure and functioning of surface water ecosystems.

It shows the influence of pressures (e.g. pollution and habitat degradation) on the identified quality elements.

Ecological status is determined for each of the surface water bodies of rivers, lakes. Like functional assessment, Ecological Assessment is part of an analysis involving students and the environment.

While functional assessment identifies specific behaviors (usually problem behaviors) exhibited by a student as the target of the assessment, Ecological Assessments have both a setting focus and a student focus. Ecological Assessments study Missing: Irish lakes.
