Zooplankton community structure of two marginal lakes of the River Cuiabá (Mato Grosso, Brazil) with analysis of Rotifera and Cladocera diversity.
In the present study, two small lakes on the margins of the River Cuiabá were analyzed regarding taxonomic composition and population densities of the zooplankton. Diversity was evaluated for twoExpand
Post-encounter vulnerability of some rotifer prey types to predation by the copepod Acanthocyclops robustus
Prey characteristics affecting vulnerability of a number of rotifer species to the predator Acanthocyclops robustus were investigated. Body volume was the main feature affecting the probability ofExpand
Growth potential of Daphnia magna Straus in the water of dairy waste stabilization ponds
The waters from two ponds of a series of waste stabilization ponds treating dairy effluent, were studied as a growth medium for Daphnia magna Straus individuals in the laboratory. Body growth andExpand
Growth of the rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus pallas in dairy waste stabilization ponds
Abstract The phytoplankton and zooplankton populations of a series of temperate region waste stabilization ponds treating dairy effluent were studied over a period of 17 months. The system wasExpand
Some aspects of vulnerability to cyclopoid predation of zooplankton prey individuals
The predation cycle (encounter, attack, capture and ingestion or survival) by adult female Acanthocyclops robustus was observed for four crustacean prey types. The chief defense of A. robustusExpand

The occurrence of the freshwater jellyfish Craspedacusta sowerbii (=sowerbyi) Lankester, 1880 was recorded in April 2006 in the Lagoa Misteriosa water body, a calcareous lake (doline) in Mato GrossoExpand
Structure of macroinvertebrate communities in riffles of a Neotropical karst stream in the wet and dry seasons
OBJETIVOS: Este estudo avaliou os efeitos das variaveis quimicas e fisicas e da sazonalidade na diversidade e estrutura da fauna de macroinvertebrados em corredeiras de um riacho carsticoExpand
First Record of the Peritrich Trichodina diaptomi Basson and Van As, 1991 (Protozoa: Ciliophora) on a South American Calanoid Notodiaptomus deitersi (Poppe, 1890) (Crustacea: Copepoda)
ABSTRACT. The ciliate Trichodina was recorded on the calanoid Notodiaptomus deitersi in a shallow, eutrophic reservoir, located in the centre‐west of Brazil. The species was confirmed as TrichodinaExpand
