Changes in invertebrate assemblage structure as affected by the flow regulation of a páramo river

Juan David González-Trujillo and Jhon Ch. Donato-Rondon

Flow regulation alters the structure of invertebrate assemblages inhabiting a Páramo river. The elimination of spates did not lead to a complete turnover of taxa. Instead, it allowed the establishment and the increase in density of taxa without specific resistance-resilience adaptations. This study highlighted the importance of implementing new regulation plans, which mimic the natural flow regime.
