    Description: We compared the invertebrate production and stable isotope signatures of key ecosystem compartments of urban sites subjected to the input of tertiary-treated wastewater with those of upstream sites in an agricultural lowland stream. We detected a significant shift in the trophic basis of invertebrate production from upstream, natural and agricultural resources, to urban resources, i.e., wastewater-derived organic matter as well as autochthonous primary production based on wastewater-derived nutrients. Invertebrate production was higher at urban sites than at agricultural sites. However, the median contribution of the most important secondary producer, the shredder Gammarus roeseli , to total invertebrate production was lower at urban sites (9%) than at agricultural sites (61%). The low production of G. roeseli at urban sites was associated with the absence of allochthonous coarse particulate organic matter (CPOM) habitats, rather than the loss of CPOM as a food resource. Our results suggest that contemporary urban stressors in developed countries affect secondary producers less severely than historically recorded, but still profoundly change the matter fluxes and ecosystem functioning of running waters. Restoration of the native riparian vegetation, channel naturalization, and adequate dilution of tertiary-treated wastewater may partially mitigate adverse effects on invertebrate communities and their secondary production.
    Description: Nous comparons la production d'invertbrs et les signatures d'isotopes stables de compartiments cls de l'cosystme dans des sites urbains soumis l'apport d'eaux uses de traitement tertiaire par comparaison des sites d'amont dans un cours d'eau agricole de plaine. Nous dtectons un changement significatif dans la base trophique de la production d'invertbrs, partir des ressources naturelles et agricoles en amont vers des ressources urbaines, c'est--dire de la matire organique drive des eaux uses, ainsi qu'une production primaire autochtone base sur des nutriments provenant des eaux uses. La production d'invertbrs est plus leve dans les sites urbains que dans les sites agricoles. Cependant, la contribution mdiane du producteur secondaire le plus important, le dchiqueteur Gammarus roeseli , la production totale des invertbrs est plus basse aux sites urbains (9 %) qu'aux sites agricoles (61 %). La faible production de G. roeseli aux sites urbains est associe l'absence d'habitats matire organique particulaire grossire (CPOM) allochtone, plutt qu' la perte de CPOM comme ressource alimentaire. Nos rsultats laissent croire que les facteurs urbains actuels de stress dans les pays dvelopps affectent les producteurs secondaires moins svrement que signal dans le pass, mais qu'ils modifient nanmoins profondment les flux de matire et le fonctionnement de l'cosystme dans les eaux courantes. La restauration de la vgtation riveraine indigne, la naturalisation du chenal et la dilution adquate des eaux uses aprs un traitement tertiaire peuvent en partie rduire les effets ngatifs sur les communauts d'invertbrs et leur production secondaire.
