Ecological parameter:  salinity Denys Hustedt

Parameter group: habitat preference parameters

Explanation:
Species serve as indicators for salinity (measure of the total quantity of dissolved solids in water) following Hustedt (1953) (Hustedt, 1957).
2= polyhalobous
3= polyhalobous to mesohalobous
