The Island of Martin Garcia is located in the Upper Río de la Plata, to the south of mouth the Uruguay River. The aim of the present study was to analyse the biodiversity of the island freshwater mollusks and their relationships to environmental variables. Twelve sampling sites were selected, five were along the littoral section of the island and seven were Inland ponds. Seven major environmental variables were measured: water and air temperature, percentage of oxygen saturation, dissolved…

The Island of Martín García--located in the Upper Río de la Plata, to the south of the Uruguay River--is an outcropping of the crystalline basement and clustering of species based on their occurrence in different ecological conditions revealed two main species groups.

Annelida (Oligochaeta and Aphanoneura) from the Natural Reserve of Isla Martín García (upper Río de la Plata estuary, Argentina): biodiversity and response to environmental variables

UPGMA clustering of species based on their occurrence in different ecological conditions revealed two main species groups: Naididae and Aeolosomatidae, which correlated with the four environmental variables in the following order: water temperature, pH, electrical conductivity, and dissolved oxygen.

At Martín García Island—a Natural Reserve located at the confluence of the Paraná and Uruguay rivers—we used benthic-macroinvertebrate biotic indices to elucidate the structure and community

The most problematic freshwater invasive species in South America, Limnoperna fortunei (Dunker, 1857), and its status after 30 years of invasion

Limnoperna fortunei, a problematic freshwater invasive mussel in South America, was first detected in 1991 at Bagliardi Beach, Río de la Plata (Argentina). Since then, there has been a high increase

Distribution of Mollusca Fauna in the Streams of Tunceli Province (East Anatolia, Turkey) and its Relationship with Some Physicochemical Parameters

Water temperature (T), dissolved oxygen (DO), pH, pH, and Ca were the most influential variables on the Mollusca fauna.

Ecological effects of dams, alien fish, and physiochemical environmental factors on homogeneity/heterogeneity of fish community in four tributaries of the Pearl River in China

The number of fish species present in three of the four sampled tributaries declined dramatically over the past 30 years, leading toward a trend of increased fish community homogeneity throughout the watershed.

The heart of the investigation lies in the specific conditions of the area in question, where slightly varying environments provide the proper ecological requirements for a variety of species which are essential for biodiversity conservation.

Relationships of Limnoperna Fortunei with Benthic Animals

A variety of animals, including fish, crabs, turtles, waterfowl, and some mammals, may benefit from predation on this new abundant prey item, although the consequences to predator populations remain unstudied.

First records of Freshwater Bivalves of Ilha Grande National Park, Paraná, Brazil

The results demonstrated the importance of abiotic factors such as the physical composition of granulometric texture, organic matter and macrophyte banks, to the establishment of bivalves in these floodplain lagoons of the Ilha Grande National Park, and provides contributions to better understanding the ecology of these mollusks.

Biologic and Ecologic Aspects of Sinelobus stanfordi (Richardson, 1901) (Crustacea, Tanaidacea) in the Martín García Island Natural Reserve, Río de la Plata, Argentina

The almost permanent presence of all developmental stages during every season of the year suggested a likely continuous year-long reproduction of S. stanfordi.

The pattern of population growth displayed a staggered model, where the greatest growth is observed during the summer, and this pattern is not similar to that of other cogeneric species already studied.

Canonical correspondence analysis showed that months positioned in the upper left have mostly warmer water temperature with high pH levels, whereas months located at the right but opposite site have cooler temperature with relatively low pH and both higher dissolved oxygen and redox potential values.
