    Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis (Bti) is an effective larvicide to control mosquito populations, with negligible environmental impacts. Bti treatments raise the question of possible effects on food webs, with potential proliferations of phytoplankton due to mosquito elimination. We found no negative effects of Bti on total phytoplankton density and community diversity, though diatoms tended to be replaced by drought-resistant algae.

  • Distribution, ecology and conservation status of two endemic amphipods, Echinogammarus acarinatus and Fontogammarus dalmatinus was studied. This study illustrates the importance of including ecological and historical interpretation of species’ distributions for managing conservational issues of freshwater endemics with narrow ranges.

  • Sponge-symbionts have the ecological important functions and produce a diverse pharmacological metabolites. Bacteria associated with freshwater sponges have been much less studied. Our study describes diversity of bacteria in Baikalian sponges, specially, those of S. papyracea for the first time. We provide additional knowledge into freshwater sponge-associated microbiota.

    This paper proves that nitrogen treatment of Paris wastewater since the improvements in WWTP has impacted nitrification in the Seine River. The observations and the modelling tools showed that more nitrifiers are discharged than before but do not develop due to lack in substrate leading in the disappearance of oxygen deficits linked to nitrification.
