Use of terrestrial molluscs for bioindication of the impact of the Gabčíkovo hydraulic structures (the Danube River, Slovakia)

Tomáš Čejka

The aim of this paper is (1) describe main methods using within the biomonitoring programme of the Gabčíkovo hydraulic structures along the Danube River, SW Slovakia; (2) present main results of the monitored long‐term structural changes in alluvial molluscan fauna over the past ten years; (3) describe changes to surface and ground water dynamics on communities of terrestrial molluscs and (4) compare structure of molluscan faunas before the Danube damming and ten years on.
