O mém projektu

My project identifies crucial refugee (hiding spots) of aquatic fauna during dry periods in intermittent streams (streams that regularly dry during summer) which are expanding in last decade as phenomenon connected with climate change. I will mainly focus on contribution of dry riverbed, natural residual pools and artificial ponds to population survival and recovery of stream macroinvertebrates which are sensitive and suitable monitors of biodiversity alteration in Anthropocene.
