River ecosystems, mainly those draining tropical dry forests, are among the most endangered tropical ecosystems and a major conservation priority in South America, as elsewhere. In this study, we assessed the influence of environmental factors (e.g., precipitation) and riparian vegetation on Trichoptera larval assemblages colonizing four substrates (rock, gravel, sand, and litter) in the Venadillo and Opia watersheds (Tolima, Colombia). In each river, five 20m reaches nested into two 100m… 
Distribución espacial y temporal de larvas de Trichoptera (Insecta) en el río Manzanares, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (Colombia)
The Trichoptera showed affinity to the specific microhabitats, variations in their composition in relationship to climatic periods and pollution levels of the river, and some physical and chemical variables presented in the basin.
Caracterización de la entomofauna acuática en cuatro quebradas de la cuenca del río San Juan, Chocó, Colombia
The aquatic entomofauna of four streams of the San Juan river in the department of Choco (Colombia) was studied. Between February and July 2007, 2,377 specimens belonging to nine orders, 35 families
Uso de macroinvertebrados acuáticos como bioindicadores de la calidad del agua en la cuenca media del rio Guatapurí (Valledupar, Colombia)
The objective of the present research study was to evaluate water quality in the middle basin of the Guatapurí River (Colombia) through the analysis of aquatic macroinvertebrates. The BMWP/Col and
Larvas de Trichoptera en un gradiente altitudinal en un río neotropical
We evaluated the diversity of Trichoptera larvae at four sites along an altitudinal gradient in the Gaira River, Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. We examined the diversity and abundance of the
Preferencias alimentarias de Phylloicus sp. (Trichoptera: Calamoceratidae) en un río Neotropical de la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia
Feeding preferences of Phylloicus sp. (Trichoptera: Calamoceratidae) in a Neotropical river of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. Introduction: Fragmentation of allochthonous material by
Los macroinvertebrados como bioindicadores de la calidad del agua: cuatro décadas de desarrollo en Colombia y Latinoamerica
Entomofauna is the community of aquatic macroinvertebrates best studied in Colombia. Ephemeroptera, Trichoptera, and Plecoptera orders are the better known in the taxonomy, ecology and their use as
Variation of benthic macroinvertebrate communities in streams of three landscapes of South Brazilian grasslands
Introduction: Aquatic ecosystems in southern Brazil are presently under great environmental pressure. Changes in land use result in negative impacts on the ecosystem, affecting the functioning of
Estudios sobre macroinvertebrados acuáticos en América Latina: avances recientes y direcciones futuras
Studies on Latin American freshwater macroinvertebrates: recent advances and future direc- tions. Latin America is an active scientific research area, in particular with respect to the study of
Distribution and habitat preference of Ephemeroptera and Trichoptera in subtropical mountain streams: implications for monitoring and conservation.
The spatial distribution of Ephemeroptera and Trichoptera in mountain streams of central Argentina was assessed and the effect of seasonality and the variables conditioning the abundance of the assemblages and the habitat with the highest taxonomic richness were evaluated.
First record of the larvae Byrsopteryx Flint, 1981 (Trichoptera: Hydroptilidae) in Colombia
Given the high diversity of aquatic ecosystems and the limited knowledge of Hydroptilidae genera in Colombia, it is hoped that the registration of a Byrsopteryx larva for the first time in Colombia will open the way for new research and discovery of more species in the country.


Distribuição espacial de insetos aquáticos em igarapés de pequena ordem na Amazônia Central
Big streams (presenting higher values of flow and order) showed more distinct communities in each substrate than the smaller ones, which indicates the size of the stream is related to the order and flow regime.
Efecto de los corredores ribereños sobre el estado de quebradas en la zona ganadera del río La Vieja, Colombia
In the La Vieja river watershed, Colombia, aquatic environments have been under high pressure as a result of deforestation, agricultural expansion and pasturelands established without protecting the
Estructura de la fauna béntica en corrientes de los Andes colombianos
There were differences in the macroinvertebrate assemblages according to the type of substrate, but not at the level of river sections; subsequently revealed significant differences were later shown between Sand-Gravel / Pebble, and Sand - Rock.
Clave taxonómica para larvas de las familias del orden Trichoptera (Insecta) de Costa Rica
A taxonomic key to the families of caddisfly larvae (Insecta: Trichoptera) of Costa Rica is presented and commentaries on the taxonomic diversity and ecology of each family are included, in order to facilitate the use of this important group of bioindicators.
Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera assemblages from riffles in mountain streams of Central Brazil: environmental factors influencing the distribution and abundance of immatures.
Al altitude, hydrologic classification and vegetation cover were the most important factors explaining the distribution of Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera and Trichoptera immatures in streams of the Brazilian Center-West.
The stations Totare River, El Papayal, Las Mellizas, and La Rica streams, showed the highest abundance of organisms (collectively 59% of the total), and the most abundant genera were Smicridea and Hydroptila.
Riparian land use and the relationship between the benthos and litter decomposition in tropical montane streams
The data suggest that, in these Neotropical montane streams, land use can have a significant impact on the rates of critical ecosystem processes, such as litter decomposition, and the predominant role that single species can have in terms of controlling stream ecosystem-level processes is highlighted.
Litter and soil arthropods diversity and density in a tropical dry forest ecosystem in Western Mexico
The composition and temporal changes of edaphic microarthropods in both litter layer and soil were analyzed in a tropical dry forest ecosystem in Western Mexico. Sampling was carried out from June
Influence of Environmental Variables on Stream Caddis Larvae in Three Slovenian Ecoregions: Alps, Dinaric Western Balkans and Pannonian Lowland
Identification of the environmental variables that influence caddis larvae was performed on 504 samples collected at 94 sites within the three ecoregions of Slovenia; the Alps, the Dinaric western
Spatial and temporal organization of aquatic insects assemblages in the longitudinal gradient of a tropical river.
The distribution and abundance of aquatic insects were studied in the longitudinal gradient of the watershed of Macaé River, a coastal Atlantic Forest river in South-eastern Brazil to check which of the 14 physical and chemical variables significantly explained macroinvertebrate community variation.
