Several biodiversity indices will be developed and compared through a survey of the planktonic foodwed in shallow lakes in Flanders. Validation will be based on existing datasets and will be compared to diatom-based indiced. We will evaluate which (combination of) indices provide an optimal assessment of biodiversity and nature value based on their accuracy and cost-efficiency.
