Preprint
Most studies exploring land use impacts have focused on taxonomic metrics, but interest in the functional approach has increased because it helps to understand the relationships between community structure and functioning of aquatic ecosystems. We evaluated how functional and taxonomic approaches contribute to assessing the effects of land use on m...

A two-year study was conducted in a conservation area of the Ventania hill system where the Pampean grassy steppes and their headwater springs maintain conditions close to natural ones. The composition and the structure of Chironomidae (Insecta: Diptera) along two short hill pristine streams and their relationship with the physicochemical variables...

The goal of this study was to analyse the presence, abundance, types, size and colours of microplastics (MPs) in the soft tissue of the golden mussel Limnoperna fortunei in the freshwater-mixohaline tidal zone of Río de la Plata estuary. 240 mussels were analysed and the MPs were observed in the 96% of samples, being more abundant in the mussels th...

Cuando una especie es introducida en un nuevo ambiente, es importante conocer, entre otros aspectos, su capacidad reproductiva para poder predecir si dicha especie tiene potencial invasor. Recientemente, el caracol asiático de agua dulce Sinotaia quadrata fue registrado en un arroyo periurbano bonaerense cercano a la ciudad de La Plata. Este estudi...

Background: Since its accidental introduction in 1991, - Limnoperna fortunei has spread throughout the del Plata basin becoming established as a new non-indigenous freshwater bivalve in South America. Results: I compared its population dynamics between two - sites in the Rio de la Plata Estuary at Bagliardi Beach (freshwater) and Punta Indio Beach...

The structure and composition of benthic communities on hard substrates covered by the nonindigenous bivalve Limnoperna fortunei Dunker, the golden mussel, were quantified in the middle zone of the Río de la Plata Estuary (Argentina) from April 2001 through March 2002. A total of 26 taxa were recorded. L. fortunei and Nematoda were the central and...

The spatial and temporal differences in the structure and composition of benthic invertebrates were studied at three sites of the Samborombón River, which is an important tributary of the Río de la Plata Estuary (Argentina), having a low slope and brackish drainage. Biological samples were taken during each season. Physico-chemical variables were m...

The present study shows the most important results in the sampling carried out in the Río de la Plata river from the year 1993. The main components of the zoobenthos in the studied area were the oligochaetes and nematods, particularly in sectors with high organic matter content and low dissolved oxygen. Tubificidae was very frequent, mainly Limnodr...

The Rio de la Plata river present along the south coastal fringe different invertebrate assemblages related with substrate type, size sediment grains and organic matter content into the bedsediments. Other important factors influencing the distribution of benthos community in this river are the salinity and suspended solids of the water and the pro...
