Institute of Aquatic Ecology

                                                                                      

The Institute of Aquatic Ecology (Institut d’Ecologia Aquàtica, IEA) of the University of Girona is a research center founded in 1987 and devoted to all aquatic ecosystems, including marine and inland water habitats (rivers, lakes and reservoirs, and wetlands). It is currently organised in three Sections (Limnology, Microbiology and Marine biology), corresponding to three research groups. It presently consists of over 30 researchers on a wide array of water ecology topics (including studies on bacteria, algae, macroinvertebrates and fish), what facilitates multidisplinary research.

Most of the IEA belongs to EcoAqua (research group recognized and funded by the Generalitat of Catalonia: 2014 SGR 484 and 2017 SGR 548) and some members coordinate the web page Health and Fish.

International Review of Hydrobiology
Captive breeding conditions decrease metabolic rates and alter morphological traits in the endangered Spanish toothcarp Aphanius iberus
Physiological features of species can determine the resilience and adaptation of organisms to the environment. Swimming capacity and metabolic traits are key factors for fish survival, mating and predator‐prey interactions.

AFRIMED project: Algal Forest Restoration in MEDiterranean sea
In the Mediterranean Sea, macroalgal forests represent one of the most valuable, but rapidly disappearing habitats. Here, capitalising on the experience gained and the knowledge accumulated in previous projects, we have formulated a consortium that will improve existing, and develop new restoration techniques to efficiently restore degraded macroalgal forests

Organization of Squamata (Reptilia) assemblages in Mediterranean archipelagos
Mediterranean islands have complex reptile assemblages, but little is known about the factors that determine their organization. In this study, the structure of assemblages of Squamata was evaluated based on their species richness and two measures of phylogenetic diversity (variability and clustering).

Microbes inhabiting intermittent streambeds
Multi‐model assessment of hydrological and environmental impacts on streambed microbes in Mediterranean catchments
Microbes inhabiting intermittent streambeds are responsible for controlling and developing many biogeochemical processes essential for the ecosystem functions. Although streambed microbiota is adapted to intermittency the intensification of water scarcity and prolonged dry periods may jeopardise their capacity to cope with hydrological changes

Arsenic Biogeochemistry
Biotic and Abiotic Factors Influencing Arsenic Biogeochemistry and Toxicity in Fluvial Ecosystems: A Review
This review is focused on the biogeochemistry of arsenic in freshwaters and, especially,
on the key role that benthic microalgae and prokaryotic communities from biofilms play together
in through speciation, distribution, and cycling.
