Body size, ecological tolerance and potential for water quality bioindication in the genus Anacroneuria (Plecoptera: Perlidae) from South America. Knowledge about the biology and ecology of neotropical aquatic taxa is crucial to establish general ecological rules and water protection systems. Based mainly on published data, the present work shows the following biological and ecological characteristics of Anacroneuria species (Klapalek 1909): a) the wide range of environmental conditions of… Expand
Estadios ninfales de Anacroneuria spp. (Plecoptera: Perlidae) y su relación con variables fisicoquímicas en tres microcuencas del río Combeima (Ibagué, Colombia).
The order Plecoptera represents one of the most relevant groups of aquatic insects for bioindication in Colombia. In recent years, the knowledge on the order has increased greatly; nevertheless, inExpand
Seasonal size distribution of Anacroneuria (Plecoptera: Perlidae) in an andean tropical river
The highest abundance of Anacroneuria larvae was observed during the dry season and there was a higher abundance of small-sized individuals (body length <12mm), and Conductivity and pH showed a significant correlation with the total abundance of preimaginal stonefies. Expand
Community structure and functional feeding groups of macroinvertebrates in pristine Andean streams under different vegetation cover
ABSTRACT As a function of the dominant vegetation cover, patterns of variation in the structure and composition of both, the aquatic macroinvertebrate communities and their functional feeding groupsExpand
Riparian and microhabitat factors determine the structure of the EPT community in Andean headwater rivers of Ecuador
This research was conducted in the high‐Andean basin of the Zhurucay River in southern Ecuador. In 4 river reaches, 19 sampling campaigns were conducted per reach spread over a period of 35 months.Expand
Using macroinvertebrate biological traits for assessing biotic integrity of neotropical streams
This results clearly confirm the possible use of functional traits for water quality assessment in neotropical streams, and provides support to the River Habitat Templet hypothesis since habitat disturbances produced predictable functional changes in macroinvertebrate assemblages. Expand
Genetic and phenotypic variability in Stenoperla prasina (Newman, 1845) (Plecoptera: Eustheniidae) in relation to latitude and altitude in New Zealand
No relationship was found between body size and latitude over the length of New Zealand, however, male or female size was correlated with either latitude or altitude in the North or South Islands, and with altitude on a North Island mountain. Expand
The Andean Biotic Index (ABI): revised tolerance to pollution values for macroinvertebrate families and index performance evaluation.
This review shows that in the high Andes, the tolerance of several macroinvertebrate families to pollution differs from those reported in other areas, and proposes an Andean Biotic Index (ABI), which is based on the BMWP index. Expand
Tolerance of benthic macroinvertebrates to organic enrichment in highland streams of northeastern Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
AIM: the aim of this study was to determine the ecological valence of benthic macroinvertebrates at different pollution levels in highland rivers and streams of Rio Grande do Sul; METHODS: theExpand
Using environmental and spatial filters to explain stonefly occurrences in southeastern Brazilian streams: implications for biomonitoring Utilizando filtros ambientais e espaciais para explicar a ocorrência de plecópteros em córregos do sudeste Brasileiro: implicações para o biomonitoramento
Many biomonitoring programs of aquatic systems are based on knowledge of species' geographic distributions and on how different groups respond facing different sources of impact. In this study, weExpand
Agrorural Ecosystem Effects on the Macroinvertebrate Assemblages of a Tropical River
Costa Rica is an ideal reference point for global tropical ecology. It has an abundance of tropical forests, wetlands, rivers, estuaries, and active volcanoes. It supports one of the highest knownExpand


Stonefly (Plecoptera) fauna in a mountainous area of Central Brazil: composition and adult phenology
Although adults of most species were collected along most of the studied period, the largest number of adults was collected in the months with larger mean temperatures, showing a clear seasonality in abundance. Expand
La diversidad del zoobentos en ríos de montaña del noroeste de Argentina: comparación entre seis ríos
Zoobenthic diversity in mountain rivers of northwestern Argentina: a comparison among six rivers: The structure of the benthic community of six rivers belonging to three subtropical basins fromExpand
Egg development, nymphal growth and life cycle strategies in Plecoptera
Interspecific and intraspecific differences in egg development, nymphal growth and the life cycles of Fennoscandian stoneflies are examined in relation to zoogeographical aspects and evolutionaryExpand
Stonefly (Plecoptera) fauna in a mountainous area of Central Brazil: abiotic factors and nymph density
The stonefly (Pleeoptera) nymphs of streams of the Almas River basin, Pirenopolis, Goias State, Central Brazil, and some abiotie factors that might affect their temporal distribution were studied, showing that the seasonal variation was not clearly influenced by the annual rain cycle. Expand
Embryogenesis of Dinocras cephalotes, Perla grandis and P. marginata (Plecoptera: Perlidae) in different temperature regimes
Embryogenesis of D. cephalotes, hatching of eggs from the Necker population was much less synchronous than that in the Thur population, and it is possible that this asynchrony spreads the risk of destruction during bed-moving floods. Expand
Ecological profiles of caddisfly larvae in Mediterranean streams: implications for bioassessment methods.
A simple score for ecological profiles which measures intolerance to water quality of caddisflies is presented, which shows general agreement between the degree of intolerance of a family and its score in the biotic index IBMWP. Expand
Species traits in relation to a habitat templet for river systems
SUMMARY 1 This paper focuses on the premise that the habitat provides the templet upon which evolution forges characteristic species traits. Alternative hypotheses are that there are historic andExpand
Diversity and habitat preference of aquatic insects along the longitudinal gradient of the Macaé River basin, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Analysis of diversity numbers indicated that all insect taxonomic orders had higher numbers on 2nd order stream reach, except for Ephemeroptera, on 4th order, however when considering morph-species taxonomic level, the higher diversity number occurred on 4 fourth order stream. Expand
Body size and leg length variation in several species of darkling beetles (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae) along a rainfall and altitudinal gradient in the Negev Desert (Israel)
The pattern of variation of body size in Adesmia metallica, Erodius edomitus and Zophosis complanata may be explained by ambient temperature rather than productivity variation, and neither elevation nor species abundance affected variance in body size of any species. Expand
Area, altitude and aquatic plant diversity
The results suggest an absolute effect of altitude on species richness, irrespective of other influences and consistent with a decline in productivity. Expand
