Abstract in Portuguese
O presente trabalho teve o objetivo testar os efeitos da complexidade do substrato e do tipo de mesohabitat (remanso e corredeira) sobre a riqueza, a abundância e a composição de Chironomidae (Diptera) em riachos. O experimento foi realizado em 12 riachos do Brasil Central, onde em cada mesohabitat (remanso e corredeira) foram colocadas duas bandejas de plástico, uma contendo substrato com alta complexidade e outra contendo substrato com baixa complexidade. Estes substratos permaneceram no riacho durante 20 dias. Os efeitos da complexidade do substrato e dos mesohabitats não foram significativos nem sobre a riqueza padronizada nem sobre a abundância, por outro lado, o efeito do mesohabitat foi significativo sobre a composição faunística. O primeiro eixo da DCA (33% da variabilidade) separou claramente a fauna de remansos da de corredeiras. A análise de espécies indicadoras mostrou que Chironomus sp., Ablabesmyia sp.1, Ablabesmyia sp.2, Djalmabatista sp., Fittkauimyia sp., Labrundinia sp. indicaram o remanso, e Paratendipes sp., Polypedilum sp.2, Pentaneura sp., Rheotanytarsus sp.1, Corynoneura sp.2, Cricotopus sp.2, Lopescladius sp., Nanocladius sp.2, Parametriocnemus sp. e Thienemanniella sp. indicaram a corredeira.

Abstract in English
The present study had the aim to test the effects of the substrate complexity and of the mesohabitat (pools and riffles) on the richness, abundance and composition of Chironomidae (Diptera) in streams. The experiment took place in 12 streams of Central Brazil. In each stream, two plastic trays were put in each one of the two studied mesohabitats (pool and riffle), one with higher complexity substrate and one with lower complexity substrate. These substrates were kept in the streams for 20 days. The effects of substrate complexity and of mesohabitat were not significative neither on the standarized richness nor on the abundance. On the other hand, the effect of mesohabitat was significative on the faunistic composition. The first axis of DCA (33% of variability) separated cleanly the fauna in pools from those in riffles. The indicator species analysis showed that Chironomus sp., Ablabesmyia sp.1, Ablabesmyia sp.2, Djalmabatista sp., Fittkauimyia sp., Labrundinia sp. indicated pools, and Paratendipes sp., Polypedilum sp.2, Pentaneura sp., Rheotanytarsus sp.1, Corynoneura sp.2, Cricotopus sp.2, Lopescladius sp., Nanocladius sp.2, Parametriocnemus sp. and Thienemanniella sp. indicated riffles.
