- ... The impact of fine sediments on both habitat quality and macroinvertebrate communities of riverine systems has been well documented over recent years. However, there is a paucity of studies examining the mechanisms that relate macroinvertebrate sensitivity and responses of individual macroinvertebrate species to burial by sediment. Laboratory-based burial experiments were undertaken to study the r ...

- ... The production of diapausing eggs is an ecological strategy commonly used by zooplanktonic organisms to cope with adverse conditions in time-varying habitats. Traits related to diapause (e.g., the time spent in diapause, the hatching fraction of diapausing eggs, or the amount of reserves allocated to them) should be combined by natural selection to favor adaptation to particular habitat conditions ...
