Impact of the lake size and habitat diversity on the diversity of planktonic and benthic algae is studied. The importance of adjacent habitats in maintaining macroinvertebrate diversity of permanent freshwater marshy ecosystems is being investigated. Relative roles of environmental and spatial factors in determining macroinvertebrate metacommunity structure in riverine systems is being modelling.
