Lake macroinvertebrates and the altitudinal environmental gradient in the Pyrenees

  title={Lake macroinvertebrates and the altitudinal environmental gradient in the Pyrenees},
  author={Guillermo de Mendoza and J. Catal{\'a}n},
The distribution of different macroinvertebrate groups inhabiting the littoral zone of 82 mountain lakes in the Pyrenees was investigated in relation to the altitudinal environmental gradient. For each lake, altitude, longitude and latitude, together with 28 environmental variables, relating to chemical and physical characteristics and to lake general productivity, were considered. Using Principal Component Analysis (PCA) we showed that the altitudinal environmental gradient (i.e. altitude and… CONTINUE READING
