Macroinvertebrate herbivores and epilithon algae community of a stream affected by mineralized heated mining water inflow

Sylvie Růžičková, Veronika Weissová, Bohuslav Uher and Jan Helešic

The mining water altered abundance and taxa richness of herbivorous macroinvertebrates and their food – epilithic algae. Changes in community composition and function were recorded, scraper-collectors and invasive species became dominant in affected sites. Understanding the ecological effects of mining water effluent is useful for river protection management.
