Phytoplankton from the Peri-Pampean hills: Córdoba system
Martínez de Fabricius, Ana L.; Novoa, Martín D.; Huber, M. Paula; Sosa, Marina L.
The province of Córdoba, located in the central region of Argentina, is subdivided into two areas: a hilly area to the west and a plain to the east. The fluvio-lacustrine systems developed in these areas form both exorheic and endorheic basins. The phytoplankton dynamics of these basins is determined mainly by their physicochemical and hydrological features and the succession of dry and wet periods. In addition to these factors, there are allochthonous impacts caused by the human activities developed in the area of influence. This article describes the phytoplankton from the exorheic river systems of Tercero and Cuarto Rivers, the endorheic rivers Tegua, Chucul and Santa Catalina, and urban (Villa Dalcar and Parque Sarmiento) and natural Suco shallow lake lentic systems.
