Abstract

The role of sediment and periphyton is significant in the life of aquatic and wetland habitats. The recent sediment covering the surface of the bottom has a significant role in the process which influence on water quality. Investigation of the epipelon, the periphytic association can be found on or in the fine-grained sediment is our recent task which is a current topic in international view, because the organisms creating the epipelon have strong interaction with the physical, chemical, biochemical and microbiological processes of the sediment. As a result of the activity of the periphyton and the sediment organisms the metabolism pathways come into being in the aquatic ecological systems that can indicate or influence the habitat characteristics. For analysis of the epipelon the measuring of the ETS (Electron Transport System) - activity can be used. By this parameter we would like to increase number of the non-taxonomic periphyton index determining the characteristic ecological status of waters within the scope of WFD (Water Framework Directive).
