Abstract

The numerous water bodies of the High-Andes, many of them saline due to the low precipitation rates and high evaporation rates, experience extreme environmental conditions of, for example, low temperatures, low-oxygen content, low atmospheric pressure and high UV radiation. In this respect they are particularly interesting for the study of the invertebrate biodiversity at the species and community level, as well as for the study of the physiological adaptations of these organisms to extreme conditions.
