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.
