Streamwater). Under normal conditions (circumneutral, pH % 7), the internal medium tends to passively lose ions and gain water. , active uptake by gill chloride cells). In acidified waters, higher proton (H+) and/or aluminum (certain forms) concentrations induce a dysfunction of iono-/osmoregulation due to gill alteration (Karlsson-Norrgren et al. 1986; A 6 Acid Rain Ecotoxicity Goossenaerts et al. 1988). Failure to compensate for ion losses and water entry leads organisms to death. The situation is amplified when waters are demineralized as it enhances the difficulty to uptake ions from water.

Understanding both the biological effects and ecological consequences of episodic acidity has deep implications for defining recovery management strategies. In the current context of ecosystem recovery from acidification, physiological variables, such as hemolymph [Cl+] and [Na+], would be interesting monitoring tools of the suitability, in terms of chemical quality, of aquatic environments for the recolonization of acid-sensitive species. , on the settlement of sensitive species populations and the sustainability of these populations).
