An index to evaluate the fluvial habitat degradation in lowland urban streams
Abstract The objective of the present article is to propose an index that allows the assessment of the fluvial habitat quality in lowland streams that run through urbanized areas, by the use ofExpand

Global pressures, specific responses: effects of nutrient enrichment in streams from different biomes
We assessed the effects of nutrient enrichment on three stream ecosystems running through distinct biomes (Mediterranean, Pampean and Andean). We increased the concentrations of N and P in the streamExpand

Effects of discharges from the textile industry on the biotic integrity of benthic assemblages.
We explored the effects of a textile industry effluent on water quality, habitat quality and structural and functional responses of benthic communities in a lowland stream. Two sampling sites wereExpand

Macrophytes, epipelic biofilm, and invertebrates as biotic indicators of physical habitat degradation of lowland streams (Argentina)
Our objective was to assess the effect of the physical habitat degradation in three lowland streams of Argentina that are subject to different land uses. To address this matter, we looked into someExpand

Site-occupancy modelling: A new approach to assess sensitivity of indicator species
Abstract One of the most challenging aspects of quality indices has been to compile reliable measures of the species’ sensitivity to various magnitudes and different kinds of ecosystem attributes.Expand

Assessing the sensitivity of leeches as indicators of water quality.
The objective of this work was assessing the sensitivity of leeches to several water quality attributes in lowlands streams. We used occupancy modelling that account explicitly for detectability, toExpand

Environmental diagnosis of an urban basin from a social-ecological perspective.
The critical factor in restoration and conservation of urban streams and their catchments is the human population, however the most of studies of urban ecosystems do not present social descriptors asExpand

Nutrient enrichment effect on macroinvertebrates in a lowland stream of Argentina
One of the most important effects derived from the intensive land use is the increase of nutrient concentration in the aquatic systems due to superficial drainage. Besides, the increment ofExpand
