The Biology of Temporary Waters

D. Dudley Williams

Oxford University Press

The diversity of temporary water habitats is vast, and while some such as intermittent streams and ponds have been reasonably well studied, the knowledge of others is incomplete. This chapter synthesizes the available information on aquatic microhabitats such as phytotelmata (e.g., pitcher plant reservoirs and bromeliad leaf axil tanks), man-made waters, hot and cold desert habitats, and liquid dung. It seeks to find commonality among their various populations and communities.

Keywords:   microhabitats, phytotelmata, pitcher plants, bromeliads, dung, populations, communities
