MRC Technical Paper No.22
This report describes the biological indicator groups in the samples collected during 2006, derives indicators of the condition of the sites examined in 2007, and tests the performance of these indicators against independent measures of environmental stress.
The Report features the 2008 flood which caused millions worth of damage to property and crops, and destroyed livelihoods of the people in the Mekong region. It also highlights the MRC’s efforts in helping the Member Countries prepare for natural disasters.
The summary provides an overview of the ecological health of the Mekong River. It is based on an evaluation of particular animals and plants that are recognised as being indicators of environmental health.
