Diversity mediates the responses of invertebrate density to duration and frequency of rivers’ annual drying regime

Rebeca Arias-Real, Cayetano Gutiérrez-Cánovas, Margarita Menéndez, Verónica Granados & Isabel Muñoz
Predicting the impacts of global change on highly dynamic ecosystems requires a better understanding of how communities respond to disturbance duration, frequency and timing. Intermittent rivers and ephemeral streams are dynamic ecosystems that are recognized as the most common fluvial ecosystem globally. The complexity of the drying process can give rise to different annual and antecedent hydrological conditions, but their effect on aquatic communities remains unclear. Here, using aquatic invertebrates from 33 streams across a...
