Brief description of the main scopes: 

Investigation of the connection between biotic (benthic diatom species and traits) and abiotic (physical, chemical and hydromorphological) environmental factors in large river:

1) Effect of a big city on the periphytic diatom assemblages in the Danube River.

2) Investigation of periphytic diatom assemblages in the whole Hungarian stretch of the Danube River, firstly regarding the influence of hydromorphological (bed material) differences.
