Abstract : Two rivers having similar geological and climatic conditions were studied in relation to man's impact on the eutrophication of the aquatic environment. The biological parameter of biomass accumulation (mgs chlorophyll a per square meter) and observations of the floral composition of the periphyton community were used. Results indicated that significant biological differences were present between a polluted and non-polluted stream. (Author)
