We studied invertebrate drift (intensity, propensity, and diel changes) and the recolo - nization process of stones in a tropical high-altitude stream in Ecuador for a period of 7 to 25 d dur- ing the wet and dry seasons. Our aim was to identify whether seasonal differences in flow produce differences in drift parameters and in the recolonization process, and to examine the role of micro- habitat (fast-flow vs. slow-flow areas) in this process. Invertebrate community metrics in drift did not… Expand
