Biomonitoring of intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams in Europe: Current practice and priorities to enhance ecological status assessments.
Global patterns and drivers of ecosystem functioning in rivers and riparian zones
It is found that Earth’s biomes have distinct carbon processing signatures, and slow processing is evident across latitudes, whereas rapid rates are restricted to lower latitudes.
Current velocity and food supply as factors affecting the composition of macroinvertebrates in bryophyte habitats in karst running water
Regression analysis suggested that macroinvertebrate density increased in faster water flow conditions associated with a decrease in bryophyte biomass, CPOM and FPOM, and an increase of UPOM.
Environmental drivers of biotic traits and phenology patterns of Diptera assemblages in karst springs: The role of canopy uncovered
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…
Caddisfly (Insecta: Trichoptera) fauna of Papuk Nature Park, Croatia
The rare Beraea maurus was recorded for the first time in Croatia after the single finding in 1934 and some of these species were also hitherto not recorded within the ecoregion Hungarian lowlands (ER11).
Simulating rewetting events in intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams: A global analysis of leached nutrients and organic matter
It is found that sediments, due to their large quantities within riverbeds, contribute most to the overall flux of dissolved substances during rewetting events, and that flux rates distinctly differ among climate zones.
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.
The impact of aquatic macrophyte (Salix sp. and Cladium mariscus (L.) Pohl.) removal on habitat conditions and macroinvertebrates of tufa barriers (Plitvice Lakes, Croatia)

The effects of aquatic macrophyte (willows and sawgrass) removal on flow velocity, tufa deposition, POM dynamics, and macroinvertebrate community structure were studied in the tufa barrier habitats…
Calcite deposition in karst waters is promoted by leaf litter breakdown and vice versa
- M. Miliša, A. Belančić, Renata Matoničkin Kepčija, Mirela Sertić-Perić, A. Ostojić, I. Habdija
- Environmental Science
Plant litter breakdown, an important process for energy and matter flows in freshwater eco- systems, has been extensively studied except in the karst (and calcite depositing) habitats. The aim of…
