Emergence patterns in tropical insects: the role of water discharge frequency in an Andean Stream

Maria I. Castro-Rebolledo and Jhon Ch. Donato-Rondon

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.
