In regards to your question:  It may be somewhat tangential but have
you considered the literature on sediment oxygen demand, which would
of course be a community type of analysis.

A good start is the publication:

Hatcher, K.J. (ed) 1986. Sediment Oxygen Demand, processes, modeling
and measurement.  Institute of Natural Resources, University of Georgia
Athens, Georgia, USA. 448 pp.
