Habitat-specific benthic metabolism in a Mediterranean-type intermittent stream
Katarzyna Sroczyńska, Marilia Claro, Pedro Range, Katarzyna Wasiak, Adrianna Wojtal-Frankiewicz, Radhouan Ben-Hamadou, Francisco Leitão and Luís Chícharo

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.
