Hydromorphological disturbance : in sandy lowland streams an experimental approach

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


Hydromorphological conditions in lowland streams will change due to an increase of discharge peaks induced by climate change. Substrate stability, a key parameter at habitat scale for macro invertebrates, will decrease. The effect of substrate disturbance on Trichoptera that represent three stream specialists (Halesus radiatus, Micropterna sequax and Chaetopteryx villosa), and three stream ubiquists (Anabolia nervosa, Limnephilus lunatus and Mystacides longicornis) were tested, using laboratory experiments
