Regional Applications of an Index of Biotic Integrity for Use in Water Resource Management. The Index of Biotic Integrity (IBI) was first developed by Dr. James Karr to help resource managers sample, evaluate, and describe the condition of small warm water streams in central Illinois and Indiana (Karr ).1 The phrase “biological integrity” comes from the Clean Water Act, which established “restoration and maintenance. Biotic integrity was measured using Karr's () “ Index of Biotic Integrity ” which is a summation of ten individual metrics, based on occurrence frequency of various taxonomic groups in the fish assemblage. Biotic integrity declined as the proportion of agriculture increased within the upper basin and was greatest in landscapes characterized by high proportions of wetlands and forest. I.

Abstract The Chesapeake Bay benthic index of biotic integrity (B-IBI) was developed to assess benthic community health and environmental quality in Chesapeake Bay. The B-IBI provides Chesapeake Bay monitoring programs with a uniform tool with which to characterize bay-wide benthic community condition and assess the health of the Bay.
