    The macroinvertebrate fauna of five karst (limestone) springbrook systems with contrasting physical habitat and discharge patterns were investigated to examine the role of flow permanence and habitat structure on macroinvertebrate community composition. Clear physical differences were identified...

    Although disturbance and productivity are clearly strong influences on lotic diversity, rarely have their interactive effects been studied in running water systems. We hypothesised that the presence or absence of canopy cover in streams would alter productivity-disturbance-diversity...

    The implications of shallow water impacts such as fishing and climate change on fish assemblages are generally considered in isolation from the distribution and abundance of these fish assemblages in adjacent deeper waters. We investigate the abundance and length of demersal fish assemblages...

    The response of phytoplankton development to an increased nutrient input in deep canyon-shaped stratified reservoirs was shown in four case studies. In contrast to lakes, specific features were described: longitudinal succession of phytoplankton development along the valley, transport of algal...

    Two Antarctic lakes near Hope Bay were studied during summers 1998 and 1999. One of the lakes (Boeckella) is located near Esperanza Station and exhibits a meso-eutrophic condition due to the input of nutrients of a nearby penguin rookery. Its surface generally remains ice-free during the...

    Hermatypic (reef-building) corals harbor dinoflagellate endo-symbionts Symbiodinium spp. In studying gene expression in such symbiotic corals, problems arise regarding how to distinguish the coral and symbiont mRNA, and how to estimate their fractions in the mRNA population of the holobiont...

    The main aim of the present review is to synthesise the present level of knowledge on the hydrobiology of springs in the Alps. Springs are usually small, but complex and taxa rich. They have a mosaic structure, a high degree of individuality and an azonal character, due to the peculiar...
