Linking hydrologic regime, rainfall and leaf litter fall in a riverine forest within the ramsar site humedales Chaco (Argentina)
The input of leaf litter from riparian vegetation could be affected by changes in precipitation and modifications to the hydrological regime. We analyse the pattern of leaf litterfall at the community scale as well as the ...
Avaliação da integridade de córregos a partir das características da paisagem: teste do protocolo WHEBIP para uma região tropical
(Universidade Federal de São CarlosBRUFSCarPrograma de Pós-graduação em Ecologia e Recursos Naturais, 2013-08-29)
Lotic systems are highly influenced by the landscape through which they flow, and changes in the landscape are the main threat to their ecological integrity. Evaluating the ecological "health" of lotic systems is essential ...
Leaf Litter and Invertebrate Colonization: the Role of Macroconsumers in a Subtropical Wetland (Corrientes, Argentina)
We studied the breakdown rates and the invertebrate abundance and biomass for the litter of five native aquatic plants (Eichhornia crassipes, Eichhornia azurea, Thalia multiflora, Oxycaryum cubense and Hydrocotyle ...
Leaf litter breakdown and benthic invertebrate colonization affected by seasonal drought in headwater lotic systems of Andean Patagonia
We aimed to establish the effect of seasonal drought on leaf litter breakdown and invertebrate communities. Differences in breakdown rates of Nothofagus pumilio were experimentally compared using the litter bag method ...
Influência da estrutura da vegetação de um fragmento florestal nas características físicas e químicas da água e no funcionamento do ecossistema de um córrego rural
(Universidade Federal de São CarlosBRUFSCarPrograma de Pós-graduação em Ecologia e Recursos Naturais, 2012-05-18)
Riparian ecosystems are being rapidly degraded due to deforestation for conversion of natural areas to agriculture, pasture, and urban development. In rural areas, riparian forest remnants can be very important for ...
