  • Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti) is the larvicide considered most effective in controlling mosquito populations, with negligible environmental impacts. However, field applications of Bti raise the question of possible effects on food web structure, with potential subsequent proliferations of phytoplankton due to mosquito elimination.

  • We experimentally assessed the influence of two contrasted temperatures on surface sediment disturbance (SSD) by three freshwater fish species

    SSD was 2-3 times higher at 20°C than at 10°C for the three species

    The stone loach had a higher SSD activity than the two cyprinid species

    Our results suggest that SSD by fish could increase in future warmed conditions.

    The inventory of Trichoptera in Topino river basin shows numerous species (83) in lotic and lentic waters, especially in rheocrenous and limnocrenous springs. 21 species are endemic to Italian fauna. The variety of habitats is linked to the tectonic phenomena which affected the basin from later Miocene to early Pleistocene.

  • Algal diversity in a thallium and other heavy metals-polluted environment was examined.

    Some observed algae showed broader ecological spectra.

    High diversity of Phacus sp. was noted for the first time from thallium-polluted waters.
