Presentation
Full-text available
Permanent ponds represent important habitats for aquatic biodiversity and provide vital ecosystem services as key elements for blue landscape connectivity. Although mostly neglected in management programmes, protection schemes and biodiversity studies in general, ponds constitute habitats with high α- and spatial β-diversity, providing unique habit...
Presentation
Ponds, whilst being mostly neglected in management and protection plans, can constitute habitats with high α- and β-diversity, including many rare and endemic species. In heterogeneous landscapes, ponds can also contribute to habitat connectivity and enhance γ-diversity whilst delivering many ecosystem services. Semi-aquatic insects are one of the...
Poster
Full-text available
Whilst being small and shallow, permanent ponds provide valuable habitats for a multitude of organisms as well as provide habitats for animals like aquatic insects and others, including many rare species. These ponds, which were often neglected in limnological studies, were the core of our joint project, the 3rd freshwater project - EUROPONDS in or...
Poster
Full-text available
Within the EUROPONDS project we looked into the contribution of aquatic invertebrates to terrestrial ecosystems, which are globally declining, in various countries all over Europe. Our study encompassed a restored quarry in Alpedrete, Madrid, Spain, a landscape destined for livestock activities. We hypothesized that the emergence during autumn and...

This poster was a contribution by Juan Rubio-Ríos and Encarnación Fenoy from EUROPONDS project to the online Symposium about "Researches in Experimental Sciences" ("IX Simposio de Investigación en Ciencias Experimentales") from University of Almería in Spain.
Conference Paper
"Marine and estuarine plankton ecology" group of the Department of Plant Biology and Ecology is made up of eleven researchers: six lectures, a PhD researcher, and four doctoral researchers. The activity of the group focuses on the monitoring of the plankton ecosystem, especially, on the influence of natural and anthropic factors on the zooplankton....
Article
This study focused on the phytoplanktonic community of lake Sanabria (NW Spain) during the mixing period. We integrated the classic phytoplankton counting method and the pigment analysis via high performance liquid chromatography, to obtain a global image of the community structure, which was very similar among the study zones and unaltered despite...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Bioprospecting of plankton has become an important industry during last years. The challenge of living longer and healthier and avoiding the destruction of our planet, forces us to discover new ways to produce food, energy fuel or healthy products apart from traditional agriculture or nonrenewable energies. The plankton characteristics of growth an...

Project
EUROPONDS was selected as the 3rd fresh project, a joint call of the European Federation of Freshwater Sciences (EFFS) board and the EFFS Societies as well as the European Fresh and Young Researchers (EFYR) and representatives of the Fresh Blood for Fresh Water (FBFW). To evaluate the often overlooked ecological contributions and ecosystem services provided by ponds across Europe, we will investigate the taxonomy and biomass (‘biodiversity’) and the energy content and dietary quality, as measured by total lipids and their fatty acids (‘nutritional value for subsequent consumers’) of emerging insects from ponds across Europe. Funding for this project is provided by the EFFS-federated societies.
Project
The Fresh Blood for FreshWater (FBFW) is a conference organized by early-career aquatic scientists wich aims to provide a friendly atmosphere to present research work and to break boundaries exchanging ideas with other young researchers. Next meeting, the 7th FBFW, will take place in Bilbao (Spain) under the topic ‘Fresh blood meets Anthropocene challenges’.
