ABSTRACT. Diversity of physical habitat and its relationship with benthic macroinvertebrates in urban reservoirs in Minas Gerais. We assessed the effects of physical habitat structure on benthic macroinvertebrate communities in 3 reservoirs: Serra Azul (SA), Vargem das Flores (VF) and Ibirité (IB). We sampled physical and chemical habitat and benthic macroinvertebrates at 30 systematic sites in each reservoir. In SA, the dominant taxa out of 12 were Melanoides tuberculatus Müller, 1774 (15.2%) and Chaoboridae…
