Trends of macroinvertebrate community structure in glacier‐fed rivers in relation to environmental conditions: a synthesis
1. Generalized additive models (GAMs) were used to predict macroinvertebrate taxonomic richness and individual taxon diversity at the reach level across seven European glacier-fed river sites from aExpand
Invertebrate drift — A review
This paper reviews the literature on invertebrate drift in running waters, emphasising papers published during the last 10–15 years. The terms constant drift, catastrophic drift, behavioural drift,Expand
Biology of Mayflies
Mayflies date from Carboniferous and Permian times and represent the oldest of the existing winged insects and are often among the first macroinvertebrates to colonize virgin habitats, however, over longer distances their dispersal capacity is limited, owing to the fragile nature and short life of the adults.

Handbook of Parameter Values for the Prediction of Radionuclide Transfer in Terrestrial and Freshwater Environments
For many years, the IAEA has published materials aimed at supporting the assessment of radiation impacts on human beings and the environment. Two major publications, Sediment Kd s andExpand
Life History Strategies in Ephemeroptera and Plecoptera
The major part of the life of Ephemeroptera (mayflies) and Plecoptera (stoneflies) is spent in the aquatic environment, while their short terrestrial life is primarily concerned with reproduction.Expand
Macrobenthic invertebrate richness and composition along a latitudinal gradient of European glacier‐fed streams
1. The influence of 11 environmental variables on benthic macroinvertebrate communities was examined in seven glacier-fed European streams ranging from Svalbard in the north to the Pyrenees in theExpand
Chironomid (Diptera: Chironomidae) communities in six European glacier-fed streams
1. A study on glacial stream ecosystems was carried out in six regions across Europe, from Svalbard to the French Pyrenees. The main aim was to test the validity of the conceptual model of Milner &Expand
Glacier shrinkage driving global changes in downstream systems
It is concluded that human society must plan adaptation and mitigation measures for the full breadth of impacts in all affected regions caused by glacier shrinkage, and changes in river hydrology and morphology caused by climate-induced glacier loss are projected to be the greatest of any hydrological system.

The terrestrial and freshwater invertebrate biodiversity of the archipelagoes of the Barents Sea; Svalbard, Franz Josef Land and Novaya Zemlya
Arctic terrestrial ecosystems are generally considered to be species poor, fragile and often isolated. Nonetheless, their intricate complexity, especially that of the invertebrate component, isExpand
Ecology of glacier-fed rivers: current status and concepts
SUMMARY 1. This paper is an introduction to a special issue of Freshwater Biology containing papers dealing with various aspects of the ecology of glacier-fed rivers. 2. Using similar fieldExpand
