Ephemeral habitat supports high alpha and beta diversity during drought in a subtropical semiarid wetland

Thethela Bokhutlo, Eduardo R. Cunha & Kirk O. Winemiller
Globally, the number of rivers with intermittent flow is increasing due to climate change and water abstraction for human consumption. Currently, our understanding of how hydrology in subtropical rivers with intermittent flow affects the structure and dynamics of aquatic communities is poorly understood. Here, we investigated how fish α and β-diversity patterns in intermittent channels in the lower reaches of the Okavango Delta respond to seasonal flooding and drought. Under low-flow conditions, ephemeral habitat had...
