Description We assembled an original landscape-scale dataset on species composition of the most waterlogged parts of isolated temperate spring fens in the Western Carpathian Mountains along with continuously measured water temperature and hydrological, hydrochemical, and climatic conditions.Our results showed that spring fen macroinvertebrates were strongly driven by both air (mesoclimate) and water temperature, with higher effect of spring-water temperature. Among water temperature variables, July water temperature and water temperature fluctuation explained most of the species compositional variation of aquatic macroinvertebrates, with higher explained variation in habitat specialists than in matrix-derived species.
