Responses of the phytoplankton community in the Yangtze River estuary and adjacent sea areas to the impoundment of the Three Gorges Reservoir p. 1

The changes of water transparency, silicate/phosphorus/nitrogen ratio and salinity profile due to interception of sediment and alteration of discharge by Three Gorges Dam significantly affected the community structure and spatial distribution of phytoplankton in the Yangtze River Estuary.

Insights into the reproductive activity of Omphiscola (Lymnaea) glabra (Gastropoda: Lymnaeidae) in relation to soil geology in Central France p. 11

Soil geology has an influence on the egg-laying and shell growth of the snail Omphiscola glabra. Snails living on marl laid more eggs in spring and their maximum shgell height was greater than those of congeners living on granite

The impact of an extreme flood in spring/summer 2010 on phytoplankton communities in oxbow lakes of the lower Vistula River, central Poland p. 19

The objective of study was to assess the impact of extreme flood on phytoplankton in oxbow lakes and lower Vistula River. The results indicate that extreme flooding can lead to changes in alternative states of oxbow lakes. In the river the phytoplankton was similar to that recorded the previous year.

Submerged macrophytes as bioindicators of environmental conditions in shallow lakes in eastern Poland p. 27

Macrophyte assemblages showed visible negative changes of their species diversity and biomass through the human induced eutrophication process. Their diversity is the combined effect of environmental conditions specific for a lake ecosystem, thus macrophytes have a crucial role in biomonitoring studies of shallow lakes.

Forecasting population dynamics of the black Amur bream (Megalobrama terminalis) in a large subtropical river using a univariate approach p. 35

ARIMA model and RDA were proposed to predict M. terminalis larval abundance and its influence. CCF model further identified that discharge acted as a trigger for population growth. We conclude ARIMA model approach is an especially promising tool for predicting the trend of population effectively.

Diet composition changes in tigerfish of Lake Kariba following an invasion by redclaw crayfish p. 47

High dietary plasticity and ontogenetic shifts in the tigerfish Hydrocynus vittatus diet was observed, with historical assessments highlighting a dietary shift from 1969 to present. The invasive crayfish Cherax quadricarinatus can be considered to be forming a significant portion of the tigerfish diet due to its increasing frequency in diet. These findings are of importance as they highlight that tigerfish can potential help in controlling the invasive crayfish abundances.

First description of the pupa and male of the Neotropical predatory midge Pellucidomyia oliveirai (Lane) (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) p. 57

The pupa and male adult of Pellucidomyia oliveirai are described for the first time from the Neotropical región. Map of distribution of adult species and key of the pupae of this genus are provided. The genus Pellucidomyia Macfie is reported for the first time from Argentina.

Effects of volcanic ash on assemblage patterns and biological traits of Chironomidae in a north Andean Patagonian stream, Argentina p. 67

Negative effects on chironomid assemblages were found by comparing pre and post-eruption data along an altitudinal gradient affected by heavy ash deposition from Puyehue-Cordón Caulle Volcanic Complex. This study is an important contribution for conservation and restoration management of watercourses.

Tapajobaetis, a remarkable new genus of Baetidae with spatulate claws (Ephemeroptera) p. 79

Ephemeroptera (Insecta) is a very common and abundant group in freshwater systems. Baetidae is the most diverse family of mayflies in terms of species. During a field trip to a poorly sampled area in the state of Para, Brazilian Amazon, a remarkable new genus of Ephemeroptera was collected. The objective of this work is to describe that new genus and new species.

Influence of environmental factors on cyanobacterial biomass and microcystin concentration in the Dau Tieng Reservoir, a tropical eutrophic water body in Vietnam p. 89

The dynamics of cyanobacteria and microcystins (MCs) production were investigated in a drinking water reservoir. The biomass of Chroococcales and amongst them Microcystis aeruginosa and the total phosphorus governed the MCs levels, but also temperature to a lesser extent. The manuscript provides information about toxic cyanobacteria in tropical freshwater.

Significance of pelagic and benthic metabolism for the carbon budget of a shallow lake p. 101

Pelagic and benthic primary production and respiration were measured in a shallow, eutrophic lake to examine the role of the pelagic zone and the sediments in the overall carbon budget of the lake. The pelagic zone of the lake was net autotrophic. When the sediment primary production and respiration were taken into account both processes were balanced.

Non-biting midges (Diptera: Chironomidae) research in South America: subsidizing biogeographic hypotheses p. 111

Here it is presented a contribution to data on Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) collected in South America. In total, 3196 representatives of six subfamilies were collected. Sixty-one genera have been identified, containing at least 211 species. The present study provides unprecedented information for some of the most neglected areas in terms of chironomid studies in South America.
