Functional Ecology of Mediterranean Rivers

Functional Ecology of Mediterranean Rivers

Title Functional Ecology of Mediterranean Rivers (Postgraduate Training Programme: Basic and Applied Ecology)
Institute responsible for organization University of Girona (Sergi Sabater)
Objectives Provide the basic definitions on the functioning of stream and river systems. Emphasis is given on:

- Dynamics of dissolved and particulate organic matter in river systems

- Metabolism (production and respiration)

- The microbial compartment and its connection with other compartments

Contents 1-.Structural and functional elements in the stream..

2-. Arrival and dynamics of nutrients and organic materials

3.- Flux and arrival of particulate organic matter.

4.- Structure and function of biofilms

5.- Metabolism, in relation to the arrival of materials and its use by heterotrophs.

Practical

1-. Collection of hydrological, chemical and physiographical data in a stream.

2.- Activities of primary producers and heterotrophs in a stream. Laboratory and field approaches.

Background necessary Biology and hydrology; basic knowledge on limnology
