  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • Temporal patterns of aquatic insect emergence were studied in a 3rd order Andean stream

    Aquatic insect orders showed different responses to discharge patterns

    A high percentage of emergences occurred within two discharge categories: <0.352 and 0.352–0.579 m3.s−1.

    ARIMA models were applied to analyze the time series data.

    This study provides relevant information about the ecology of aquatic insects in Andean freshwaters.

  • Geometric morphometric techniques were used to describe the morphological variations of Eucypris fontana (Crustacea, Ostracoda) in different non marine environments of Patagonia. Our results show a relationship between the valves morphology and the physical-chemical characteristics of the host waters.
