Abstract

The use of different methods of multivariate ordination for the analysis of the distribution pattern of benthic habitats along the gradient of a river ecosystem is considered. Problems of determination of homogenous segments of a stream are discussed using macrozoobenthos communities of small rivers of the lower Volga Basin as examples. A method for estimating the ordination quality criterion based on comparison with the null model and the use of bootstrap procedures is described. The dependence of statistical inferences on the level of detail of the original data, hydrobiological survey parameters, and similarity metric equations is analyzed.
