Contents Foreword: Global change and river ecosystems -- implications for structure, function, and ecosystem services; Understanding effects of global change on river ecosystems: science to support policy in a changing world; Biogeochemical implications of climate change for tropical rivers and floodplains; Dynamics of a benthic microbial community in a riverine environment subject to hydrological fluctuations (Mulargia River, Italy); Global changes in pampean lowland streams (Argentina): implications for biodiversity and functioning
Factors regulating epilithic biofilm carbon cycling and release with nutrient enrichment in headwater streamsPeriphyton biomass and ecological stoichiometry in streams within an urban to rural land-use gradient; The physico-chemical habitat template for periphyton in alpine glacial streams under a changing climate; The periphyton as a multimetric bioindicator for assessing the impact of land use on rivers: an overview of the Ardières-Morcille experimental watershed (France); Discharge and the response of biofilms to metal exposure in Mediterranean rivers
Effects of eutrophication on the interaction between algae and grazers in an Andean streamComparing fish assemblages and trophic ecology of permanent and intermittent reaches in a Mediterranean stream; Global change and food webs in running waters; Effects of hydromorphological integrity on biodiversity and functioning of river ecosystems; Organic matter availability during pre- and post-drought periods in a Mediterranean stream; Flow regime alteration effects on the organic C dynamics in semiarid stream ecosystems
Summary Rivers around the world are threatened by changes in land use, climate, hydrological cycles, and biodiversity. This book explores a wide range of determining factors that feed in to global change and examines the impact they have on river ecosystems
