Short description: Description of stream assessment methods with benthic macroinvertebrates in general and the development process of the AQEM assessment procedure. This report aims: • to present the database, which has been generated in AQEM; • to present different approaches how to develop an assessment system with the AQEM data based on examples from Austria, Germany, Italy and Sweden; • to outline the future system; • to present a rough functional design for the AQEM computer program (deliverable 4), which will be the main tool for implementing the AQEM method.
