The decreased percentage values of fresh-brackish periphytic
diatoms (mostly Fragilaria heidenii) in LDAZ CL-2 likely indicates lower transparency of the water column because of increased phytoplankton abundance (Karosiene & Paskauskas 2012).
However, specifically for Cytophaga we observed an opposite trend, since higher values of this group were associated with lower periphytic
The utilization of substrates to increase the surface area for the fixation of periphytic
communities increases the availability of food in the environment for the fish.
Changes in the structure and metabolic activities of periphytic
communities in a stream receiving treated sewage from a waste stabilization pond.
Otherwise, Poeciliopsis infans behaves as a grazer associated with the periphytic
and benthic zones, with the capability of feeding on terrestrial insects and aquatic larvae in the benthic zone.

diatoms and cyanobacteria.

food and predatory crayfish: relative roles in determining snail distribution.
In both years, DIN, which includes the most readily assimilated nitrogen forms (ammonia and nitrate) necessary for periphytic
and macrophytic growth, was higher in West Lake than in East Lake or either river (Table 3).

Impact of acid mine drainage (AMD) on water quality, stream sediments and periphytic
Diatom communities in the surrounding streams of Aljustrel mining area (Portugal).
Current research on Great Lakes coastal wetlands use a variety of biological indicators to assess wetland ecosystem health, including primary producer communities (Brazner and others 2007) and benthic, periphytic
and phytoplanktonic algal biomass (McNair and Chow-Frazier 2003).
