ABSTRACT:

Freshwater resources are globally affected by a mixture of multiple stressors such as flow diversion, point and diffuse sources (e.g. nutrients and pesticides) and climate change.  Algae are increasingly being used as reliable environmental indicators globally because they strongly respond to environmental changes. Studies are needed that linking different environmental stressors to sensitive freshwater biota in order to understand impacts on freshwater ecosystems, which will eventually provide basis for biodiversity conservation and water resources management.
