We document the outstanding diversity of fluvial ecosystems in eastern Andalusia, mostly attributable to the high environmental heterogeneity of the region. The area's altitudinal and climatic gradients are among the most pronounced in the Iberian Peninsula, and together with a concomitant high variability in geological characteristics and human impacts, result in a noticeable heterogeneity of the rivers' thermal regime, discharge regime and chemical properties.
