Zooplankton community structure of two marginal lakes of the River Cuiabá (Mato Grosso, Brazil) with analysis of Rotifera and Cladocera diversity.
TLDR
Two small lakes on the margins of the River Cuiabá were analyzed regarding taxonomic composition and population densities of the zooplankton, finding that 9 species of Cladocera, 2 of Copepoda, and 14 of Rotifera are new records for the region.

TLDR
The predation cycle (encounter, attack, capture and ingestion or survival) by adult female Acanthocyclops robustus was observed for four crustacean prey types and egg vulnerability after attack by the adult female predator was analysed.
