Abstract

This study evaluates the sequences of biofilm colonization at two stream sites located in different bioclimatic regions (Mediterranean and Central European). Despite of the ecoregional differences, the two selected streams mainly differed by their hydrology and nutrient condition. A range of structural [microbial biomass, nutrient content, extracellular polymeric substances (EPS)-polysaccharide content] and metabolic (extracellular enzyme activities).
