Results of the present study indicate that the alkaline comet assay applied to fish blood cells is a valuable tool for determining the potential genotoxicity of water pollutants and confirm its usefulness in the evaluation of DNA damage in fish living in Al-polluted waters.
Application of the comet assay and detection of DNA damage in haemocytes of medicinal leech affected by aluminium pollution: a case study.
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.

Results confirmed the high sensitivity of the comet assay for the detection of DNA damage in cells of zooplankton organisms and might represent an additional parameter useful in environmental risk assessment, especially in cases when other bioindicator species are very scarce or absent.

The copepod communities of karstic lakes along the eastern Adriatic coast were studied, finding that most of the meso-eutrophic lakes in the study area had Calanoida dominating, while Cyclopoida dominated in some oligotrophic and eutrophic lake groups.

Based on the mayfly assemblage, sampling sites were first structured by ecoregion and then by habitat type, and in comparison with the surrounding countries, the Croatian mayfly fauna is the most similar to the Hungarian and Bosnian fauna.
