Spatial and seasonal distribution of invertebrates in Northern Apennine rheocrene springs
TLDR
Four perennial rheocrene springs located between 919 and 1252 m a.s.l. on substrata characterized by different lithologies were studied and the diversity of the investigated springs was strictly dependent on the presence of different microhabitats and local environmental conditions. Expand
RESPONSES OF BENTHIC INVERTEBRATES TO ABRUPT CHANGES OF TEMPERATURE IN FLUME SIMULATIONS
Sudden instream releases of hypolimnetic water from hydropower plants (i.e. hydropeaking) can cause abrupt temperature variations (i.e. thermopeaking), typically on a daily basis. We investigated theExpand
Assessing hydrological alterations at multiple temporal scales: Adige River, Italy
[1] Hydrological alteration is one of the major threats to the integrity and functioning of riverine ecosystems. We propose to analyze such alterations by means of three approaches: theExpand
Multiple drift responses of benthic invertebrates to interacting hydropeaking and thermopeaking waves
TLDR
Simulations in a set of open air flumes directly fed by an Alpine stream and analysed drift induction in benthic invertebrates caused by a HP wave followed by a cold TP wave revealed a selective effect, with a synergic effect: drift was higher when the TP wave followed the HP one. Expand
A simple procedure for the assessment of hydropeaking flow alterations applied to several European streams
Release of water from storage hydropower plants generates rapid flow and stage fluctuations (hydropeaking) in the receiving water bodies at a variety of sub-daily time-scales. In this paper weExpand
Downward, upstream or downstream? Assessment of meio- and macrofaunal colonization patterns in a gravel-bed stream using artificial substrates
TLDR
Temporary meiofauna, which was the dominant component of trap assemblages, displayed predominantly vertical movements, supporting the nursery and refuge function of the hyporheic habitat for taxa which spend only the early larval stages in thehyporheos. Expand
HARPACTICOIDS FROM GROUNDWATERS IN THE PHILIPPINES: PARASTENOCARIS MANGYANS, NEW SPECIES, EPACTOPHANES PHILIPPINUS, NEW SPECIES, AND REDESCRIPTION OF PHYLLOGNATHOPUS BASSOTI (COPEPODA)
TLDR
Phyllognathopus bassoti has been redescribed on the basis of new material collected from fresh and brackish water wells in Bantayan Island, thus broadening the distribution and the ecology of the species, which had been previously collected only in a lake in Papua New Guinea. Expand
First Record of Parastenocarididae from Thailand and Description of a New Genus (Copepoda: Harpacticoida)
TLDR
The apomorphic characters of Asiacaris are represented by the sexual dimorphism of P2 (stronger in male than in female), the fusion of the P5 to the intercoxal sclerite and to the somite and, mostly, by the overall transformation of P4 in the male, which is the longest and strongest leg. Expand
Diapause in copepods (Crustacea) from ephemeral habitats with different hydroperiods in Everglades National Park (Florida, U.S.A.)
Water management practices in the Everglades have severely stressed the natural system, particularly by reducing the hydroperiods of much of the region. During the dry season of 1999, we investigatedExpand
