Structural and functional responses of invertebrate communities to climate change and flow regulation in alpine catchments
(Global Change Biology, 2019-01-30)
Understanding and predicting how biological communities respond to climate change is critical for assessing biodiversity vulnerability and guiding conservation efforts. Glacier‐ and snow‐fed rivers are one of the most ...
The influence of flow regime on ecological quality, bird diversity, and shellfish fisheries in a Lowland Mediterranean River and its coastal area
Designing environmental flows in lowland river sections and estuaries is a challenge for researchers and managers, given their complexity and their importance, both for nature conservation and economy. The Ebro River and ...
Agricultural impacts on streams near Nitrate Vulnerable Zones: A case study in the Ebro basin, Northern Spain
(PLoS ONE, 2019-11-08)
Agricultural intensification during the last century has caused river degradation across Europe. From the wide range of stressors derived from agricultural activities that impact rivers, diffuse agricultural pollution has ...
Functional responses of aquatic macroinvertebrates to flow regulation are shaped by natural flow intermittence in Mediterranean streams
(Freshwater Biology, 2019-03-19)
Running waters in Mediterranean regions are strongly regulated by dams, which produce significant alterations to natural flow regimes. Climate change will reduce discharge and increase flow intermittence in Mediterranean ...
Modelling physical characteristics of river habitats
(River Research and Applications, 2019-05-24)
The physical characteristics of river habitats constitute the setting in which fluvial biota dwell and thrive. Determining the spatial and temporal patterns of physical habitat characteristics and the main factors that ...
