Ecological parameter:  MFG trophic score and indicator value

Parameter group: trophic preference parameters

Explanation:
Indicator values indicate the range of tolerance of a size class/MFG across the trophic spectrum: a low value indicates a high tolerance and, therefore, a poor indicator value. The opposite is true for a high indicator value. Trophic scores indicate the trophic preference of a size class/MFG: higher the values, higher the affinity for eutrophic waters.
