As a part of the Pantanl-Ecology-Project this study analyzed the
carbon fluxes and possible disturbances of one of the Pantanal
tributaries. Different vegetation zones were compared to see which
of them can provide the most efficient organic carbon source for
the stream. Furthermore we analyzed the nutrient input over land
and how it is transported into the river and what are the reasons
for the loss of organic carbon One of the main reasons is the
erosion gully. It is caused by agricultural land use and enhances
oxidation and leaching processes and therefore is responsible for
the loss of organic carbon. As a consequence the stream is provided
with less organic matter, which can lead to a modified vegetation
cover. In this study the negative affect of the erosion gully on
the stream-floodplain-system of the Crrego Tenente Amaral was shown
and the need to protect its adjacent gallery forest, so that its
maintaining and specific ecological functions can be maintained.
