From earlier research it has been suggested that chironomid larvae may significantly affect the physical properties of cohesive sediments, leading to chemical alteration in lake ecosystems. The present study was aimed to evaluate the effect of Tanytarsini larvae on the physical properties of cohesive sediments, both in controlled environments and in natural environments. For this the sediment surface was examined by low temperature scanning electron microscopy (LTSEM) and direct measurement of… CONTINUE READING
