Abstract: Landscape runoff potential impact on reservoir limnology was indirectly evaluated by assessing the effect of precipitation variation on several water quality parameters, on Anabaena (Cyanophyta) and crustacean zooplankton abundances. The obtained results showed that total phosphorus increased with strong precipitation events whereas water transparency presented an opposite trend. Wet periods followed by long dry periods favored Anabaena dominance, which induced an accentuated decreasing on all crustacean zooplankton species abundance. Therefore, in a climate changing scenario these data are crucial to monitor and predict the effect of landscape changes on aquatic ecosystem integrity and ultimately in water quality.
