Evaluation of surface water quality using an ecotoxicological approach: a case study of the Alqueva Reservoir (Portugal)
The species that was found to be the most sensitive was T. platyurus, and this organism detected a great number of toxic water samples in rainy seasons, and the surface water toxicity was assessed using acute and chronic bioassays.
Herbicide accumulation and evolution in reservoir sediments.
Archives of environmental contamination and toxicology
▶ Publishes full-length, peer-reviewed scientific articles on contaminants in the environment ▶ Reports new discoveries on contamination of air, water, soil and biota ▶ Reports on both
A management framework for preventing the secondary spread of aquatic invasive species
This paper describes recent advances in forecasting the secondary spread of aquatic invasive species and presents a framework for assessing vulnerability of inland waters based on explicit assessment of three distinct aspects of biological invasions: colonization, site suitability, and adverse impact.
Developing the scientific basis for assessing cumulative effects of wetland loss and degradation on landscape functions: Status, perspectives, and prospects
The incongruity between the regional and national scales at which wetland losses are occurring, and the project-specific scale at which wetlands are regulated and studied, has become obvious. This
Recent perspectives on temporary river ecology
Temporary rivers, rivers that periodically cease flowing, have been reported from all continents and all types of climates. They represent a substantial proportion of the total number, length and
Ecological responses to altered flow regimes: a literature review to inform the science and management of environmental flows
SUMMARY 1. In an effort to develop quantitative relationships between various kinds of flow alteration and ecological responses, we reviewed 165 papers published over the last four decades, with a
Sedimentary phosphorus in a cascade of five reservoirs (Lozoya River, Central Spain)
Abstract Lopez, P., R. Marcé, J. Ordoñez, I. Irrutia and J. Armengol. 2009. Sedimentary phosphorus in a cascade of five reservoirs (Lozoya River, Central Spain). Lake Reserv. Manage. 25:39–48. The
Control of nitrogen and phosphorus transport by reservoirs in agricultural landscapes
AbstractReservoirs often receive excess nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) lost from agricultural land, and may subsequently influence N and P delivery to inland and coastal waters through internal
Environmental Effects of Storage Preservation Practices: Controlled Flushing of Fine Sediment from a Small Hydropower Reservoir
Downstream impact was quantified through sampling of fish fauna and macroinvertebrate in the final reach of the effluent stream, and as expected, the impact on brown trout was heavier on juveniles.
