Plankton characterization of alpine ponds: a case of study for the assessment of water quality in Serra da Estrela (Portugal) 4

This research focuses on the study of alpine ponds using an integrative approach (water chemistry, hydrological properties and communities' dynamics). Exploring the relations between abiotic factors and the planktonic communities, this work shows the inadequacy of current ecological quality assessment methods for lentic habitats in extreme environments and gives insights into future conservation concerns.

Nestedness of insect assemblages in agriculture-impacted Atlantic forest streams 3

The variation in the agricultural intensity that occurs in the riparian zones of Atlantic Forest streams generates more limnological variability. This environmental variability caused the nestedness of Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera assemblages and reduction of taxonomic richness.

Correlational analyses of the relationships between altitude and carapace size of Ostracoda (Crustacea) 2

The relationship between ostracods body size and altitude was studied from 117 aquatic habitats of Mersin province (Turkey). 72.6% of the relationship between 12 ostracods and five environmental variables was explained. Water temperature and pH were the two most effective variables on the species. The mean length of right and left valves of the species were significantly different (p < 0.01, N=3980) at all altitudinal ranges. A strong tendency of changes in valve height with increasing altitude seems to be more prominent than the changes in length for some species.

Long-term wind induced internal response mechanisms at Meiliang Bay of large, shallow Lake Taihu 1

Wind is the key external driver playing vital role for internal ecosystem transitions. The decreased wind speeds along with slow directional switching intensifies algal blooms.The temporal trends of wind, temperature and Chl-a have been found highly connected at Lake Taihu. The changes in nutrients and lower mixing scenarios trigger the growth of Chl-a. The onshore lower winds help in formation of cyanobacterial colonies.
