This research focuses on the study of alpine ponds using an integrative approach (water chemistry, hydrological properties and communities' dynamics). Exploring the relations between abiotic factors and the planktonic communities, this work shows the inadequacy of current ecological quality assessment methods for lentic habitats in extreme environments and gives insights into future conservation concerns.
