Response curves for the abundance value of chironomid species against water temperature were analyzed and optimum, tolerance, skewness and kurtosis calculated. The data base consisted of 127 taxa and 991 sites in running waters in Italy. Optimum temperature was calculated as weighted mean temperature, tolerance as weighted standard deviation, skewness and kurtosis as 3rd and 4th moment statistics respectively. Species were sorted according to optimum temperature. Most species are cold… CONTINUE READING
