Using field surveys and manipulative experiments, I'm investigating the role of the benthic and hyporheic fauna in the nutrient recycling process under multiple stressors conditions.
Specific questions are: Is the hyporheic fauna contribution in the nutrient recycling process higher than the benthic one in forested streams? How does the colmation of the streambed influence the secondary production of the invertebrate community? In agricultural streams which stressor affects mostly the functionality of the invertebrate community?
