The ISS-Phyto represents a new size spectra sensitivity-based approach to ecological status assessment in transitional waters. This index integrates simple size structure metrics with phytoplankton biomass, taxonomic richness thresholds and models of phytoplankton size class sensitivity to anthropogenic disturbance.
