Ingesta de microplásticos por el pez exótico Gambusia holbrooki en dos lagunas costeras mediterránea
Gambusia holbrooki es un pequeño pez Poecílido, de origen norteamericano que fue introducido a principios del siglo XX en humedales de la Península Ibérica para el control biológico de los mosquitos.
Actualmente presenta poblaciones en muchos humedales y está considerada como una de las principales especies invasoras en la península.

Effects of high nitrate input in the denitrification-DNRA activities in the sediment of a constructed wetland under varying C/N ratios
In constructed wetlands (CW), denitrification usually accounts for >60% of nitrogen removal and is supposedly affected by the inflow water and the wetland management practices.

Typha root - (CC) Antropology from the shed
Limited effect of radial oxygen loss on ammonia oxidizers in Typha angustifolia root hairs
The benefits of plant–microbe interactions have been exploited extensively for nutrient removal. Radial oxygen loss in aquatic macrophytes potentially promotes nitrification and accelerates nitrogen removal through coupled nitrification–denitrification process.

Ecological impacts of an invasive top predator fish across South America
Peacock bass Cichla ocellaris is a piscivorous cichlid native from the Amazon and Orinoco river basins, which has been broadly introduced into tropical areas worldwide, leading to several adverse local effects.

Antioxidant system status in threatened native fish Barbus meridionalis from the Osor River (Iberian Peninsula): I. Characterization and II. In vitro Zn assays
The evaluation of antioxidant system capacity is important in aquatic toxicology. It was aimed to characterize the liver antioxidant enzymes (SOD, CAT, GPX, GR, and GST) and to test the in vitro Zn effect (200 and 400 ZnSO4 μg/L) in native fish Barbus meridionalis obtained from the Osor River (NE, Spain) influenced by Zn contamination.

Ecosystem metabolism dynamics and environmental drivers in Mediterranean confined coastal lagoons
Aquatic metabolism is an important descriptor of ecosystem functioning. The metabolism of ponds and confined coastal lagoons has been poorly studied in comparison to other aquatic systems, in which the metabolic dynamics are better understood.

Alien fish in Neotropical reservoirs: Assessing multiple hypotheses in invasion biology
Invasive alien species (IAS) are one of the main components of global ecological change, the second known cause of animal extinctions, and very costly in terms of ecosystem services. IAS and damming are two of the most impacting alterations in freshwater ecosystems. Understanding the processes that govern biological invasions in these habitats is of enormous conceptual and practical importance.

When a freshwater invader meets the estuary: the peacock bass and fish assemblages in the São João River, Brazil
Peacock basses (Cichla spp.) are native to the Amazon basin but introduced to different parts of the world. Almost thirty years ago, Cichla kelberi was introduced in an impoundment of the São João River, a coastal system in southeastern Brazil.

Global Change Biology
The role of connectivity in the interplay between climate change and the spread of alien fish in a large Mediterranean river
Understanding how global change and connectivity will jointly modify the distribution of riverine species is crucial for conservation biology and environmental management. However, little is known about the interaction between climate change and fragmentation and how movement barriers might impede native species from adjusting their distributions vs. limit the further spread of alien species.

Addressing trait selection patterns in temporary ponds in response to wildfire disturbance and seasonal succession
Mediterranean ecosystems are increasingly threatened by disturbances such as wildfires. These disturbances are expected to shift the selective pressures that determine trait‐dependent community assembly.

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.

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).

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.

Reliability analysis of fish traits
Reliability analysis of fish traits reveals discrepancies among databases
Trait‐based approaches are commonly used in ecology to understand the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, environmental filtering or biotic responses to anthropogenic perturbations. However, little is known about the reliability of assigned traits and the consistency of trait information among different databases currently in use.

New paper in SciRep: insights in oocyte dynamics shed light on the complexities associated with fish reproductive strategies
In our new paper published in Scientific Reports we give insights in oocyte dynamics that shed light on the complexities associated with fish reproductive strategies. Our results suggest that an species previously considered indeterminate, perform a low-cost predefinition; and that the potential fecundity estimation should be complemented with primary oocyte dynamics.

Relationships of critical swimming speed Ucrit (a), maximal metabolic rate MMR (b) and absolute aerobic scope AAS (c) with fish mass for Spanish toothcarp, Aphanius iberus (N = 28) and mosquitofish, Gambusia holbrooki (N = 60).
Differences in swimming performance and energetic costs between an endangered native toothcarp (Aphanius iberus) and an invasive mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki)
Swimming performance is a key feature that mediates fitness and survival in many fish species. Using a swim tunnel respirometer, we compared prolonged swimming performance and energy use for two competing species: an endangered, endemic toothcarp (Aphanius iberus) and a worldwide invasive mosquitofish (Gambusia holbrooki).
