Resumen:
Rio Agrio is an acidic river emerging from a geothermic source at the flank of Copahue volcano in Argentina. The 13-km-long Upper Rio Agrio flows into Lake Caviahue, the outflow of which is the Lower Rio Agrio. The system of river stretches and lakes offers an acidity gradient from pH 0 to neutral conditions. Along this gradient the relation of extreme chemistry and biology is studied with a special focus on microbiology and epilithic algae. In Lake Caviahue (pH 2) the water chemistry, plankton, sediment microbiology and biogeochemistry was investigated, and the impact of volcanism with a paleolimnological analysis.
