Recent threat of habitat loss and fragmentation impels us better understanding how habitat specific dynamics influence overall ecosystem processes. This paper demonstrates that each habitat type should be considered as a discrete metabolic entity and that particular sets of environmental factors are responsible for habitat specific metabolic responses. Such findings have a great applicability in river restoration initiatives, particularly when benthic metabolism is used as indicator of ecosystem function.
