Alpine lakes are remote and small systems sensitive to environmental changes; i.e. pollution, UV-B radiation and temperature. In proposed project we want to indicate the consequences of environmental trends on different groups of organisms. Changes in biochemistry due to UV-B radiation could influence food quality. Preference for certain food may affect the community structure. Temperature is another factor which influences community structure. Energy demand measurements will provide the basis for assessment of food web relations. The sensitivity of chironomids to temperature will reveal the potential changes in community due to temperature increase.
