Diversity and distribution of stoneflies in the area of Plitvice Lakes National Park and along the Mediterranean river Cetina (Croatia)
The aim of this work was to investigate and to compare the diversity and distribution of stoneflies in the continental and the Mediterranean part of the Western Dinaric region in Croatia, and to identify new species for the Croatian fauna.
Environmental control of emergence patterns: Case study of changes in hourly and daily emergence of aquatic insects at constant and variable water temperatures
New insight is given into the complexity of relationships between aquatic insect emergence patterns and environmental drivers, and light and weather conditions trigger emergence of most insects under constant water temperature conditions, while temperature is a dominant trigger at variable water temperature habitat.
Environmental drivers influencing stonefly assemblages along a longitudinal gradient in karst lotic habitats
Stoneflies are among the most sensitive aquatic insect taxa and therefore arguably the best indicator of the excellent, i.e. pristine, ecological status of surface streams. Karst habitats are one of
Impacts of temperature anomalies on mortality of benthic organisms in the Adriatic Sea
Amongst studied species, the scleractinian coral and gorgonian populations suffered the most extensive damage during the mass mortality events, with inter-regional differences in hydrological and temperature conditions.
Communities in the Mediterranean karst River the Cetina and its tributary the Ruda, Croatia.
Benthic invertebrate communities of the Cetina River and the upper reach of the Ruda River were sampled monthly at 11 sites from August 2004 to August 2005. The sampling sites were located along the
Mass mortality events of the coral Balanophyllia europaea (Scleractinia, Dendrophylliidae) in the Mljet National Park (eastern Adriatic Sea) caused by sea temperature anomalies
Recurrent climate-induced mass mortalities of marine animals have been recorded in the Mediterranean Sea over the past 15 years. These mortality outbreaks have been associated with positive thermal
Mayfly (Insecta: Ephemeroptera) assemblages of a regulated perennial Mediterranean river system in the Western Balkans
Abstract The influences of river regulations on aquatic biota are insufficiently investigated. We assessed the level of ecological disturbance of the mayfly assemblages through the damming and flow
