Abstract
Climate change is one of the most important global processes that the Biosphere is experiencing, and mountain ecosystems are very sensitive to climate warming (Nogues-Bravo et al. 2007; Santiago et al. 2016). Mountain streams are directly affected by climate change, and populations of cold water organisms are expected to reduce in numbers in southern latitudes due to warming. Knowing how and how much they can be affected is key to plan conservation strategies. This research aims to disentangle how climate change has affected the stream biology of the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park and to predict its evolution for implementing an adaptation strategy.
