Aquatic biota in hot water: Thermal gradients in rheocrene hot spring discharges as analogues for the effects of climate warming

Negus, Peter M.; Marshall, Jonathan C.; Steward, Alisha L.; McGregor, Glenn B.; O'Connor, Ruth


Hot springs are characterised by water temperatures above 36.7 degrees C. Temperature decreases with distance in flow away from spring vents; this natural gradient provides a unique opportunity to investigate the influence of water temperature on aquatic biota. This study investigated the relationship between water temperature and the aquatic invertebrates and benthic diatoms in outflows from a hot spring complex in tropical north Queensland, Australia. Water temperature ranged from 62.7...[Show more]
