River networks are among Earth’s most threatened hot-spots of biodiversity and provide key ecosystem services (e.g., supply drinking water and food, climate regulation) essential to sustaining human well-being. Climate change and increased human water use are causing more rivers and streams to dry, with devastating impacts on biodiversity and ecosy...

Intermittent stream research focuses mostly on pristine streams. The impacts of nutrient enrichment on invertebrate communities in these systems thus remains underexplored, especially in temperate climates. This study aimed to compare taxa survival during stream drying within pristine and nutrient-enriched sediment streambeds and to evaluate seedba...
Article
Subsurface riverine sediments can provide an instream refuge for benthic macroinvertebrates during drying events in intermittent streams. The permeability of sediments may strongly influence the ability of fauna to migrate vertically through benthic and subsurface substrates. We examined the vertical movement of four common taxa with different leve...

1. Intermittent streams are naturally dominant landscape features of Mediterranean and arid regions, but also occur more and more in humid climates, such as in the Czech Republic. Organism abilities to cope with drying (i.e. resistance forms) have been quantified in naturally intermittent streams from Mediterranean and arid regions, in which long-t...
