  • Indirect effect of environmental factors on interactions between microbial and classical food webs in freshwater ecosystems

    While the influence of environmental factors on the abundance of aquatic animals is fairly well documented, less has been done to research their influence on food web interactions. Among a plenty of environmental factors measured, total solids, transparency and temperature were most closely related to the variation in trophic communities. The analyses of food web interactions under low and high levels of those factors revealed that they differently influenced strengths among food web components.

  • Estimating sediment and particulate organic nitrogen and particulate organic phosphorous yields from a volcanic watershed characterized by forest and agriculture using SWAT model

    SWAT model was applied for estimating sediment yield in a volcanic watershed.

    Relationships between PON, POP and sediment concentrations were identified.

    Annual PON and POP yields were estimated.

    Critical source area of land surface erosion was identified with SWAT model.

  • A simplified algorithm for calculating benthic nutrient fluxes in river systems

    Benthic processes play a major role in aquatic ecosystems.

    Detailed models of these processes exist but are costly in terms of calculation time.

    A simplified surrogate algorithm is derived to simplify benthic flux calculation in river system models.

  • Influence of landscape properties on stream water quality in agricultural catchments in Southeastern Brazil

    In southeast Brazil, sugarcane seems to be increasing nitrate in streams and pasture increasing suspended sediments and turbidity. Forest fragmented and restricted to the area close to water bodies are not capable to contain these impacts. These results show the importance of discuss the politic of conservation of riparian forests.
