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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
