Abstract: Abstract: Adaptive plasticity has been postulated as one of the integrating factors that explain the distribution and abundance of species on different habitat with different environmental variations. The environmental heterogeneity is the most important factor for the maintenance, increment or decrement of biodiversity. On this study we determined the effect of periodicity and habitat structure on the richness and composition of species of three different habitat: stream (P1), temporary ponds (P2) and perman…
