A review of regulation mechanisms of metazoan plankton in riverine ecosystems: aquatic habitat versus biota
This review summarizes the key factors of a series of articles about animal plankton in rivers, a topic that remains poorly investigated. Running water, in which sampling processes are variable andExpand
The distribution of macroinvertebrate assemblages in a reach of the River Allier (France), in relation to riverbed characteristics
Macroinvertebrate assemblages of large alluvial streams are poorly documented. This study identified the physical characteristics affecting the macroinvertebrates community distribution in a largeExpand
The potamoplankton of the Middle Loire and the role of the ’moving littoral‘ in downstream transfer of algae and rotifers
The seasonal succession of the potamoplankton of the Middel Loire was studied fortnightly from June to October 1995, a period of low water flow. The increase in dissolved oxygen, suspended matter,Expand
Factors related to autotrophic potamoplankton, heterotrophic protists and micrometazoan abundance, at two sites in a lowland temperate river during low water flow
The potamoplankton of the Middle Loire was studied every two weeks from June to October 1997, a period of low water flow. The downstream increase in dissolved oxygen, suspended matter, BOD5 andExpand
Effects of invertebrate predation on the seasonal succession of a zooplankton community: a two year study in Lake Aydat, France

Direct observations on living animals, examination of gut contents, spatio-temporal distribution analysis, demographic data and a two year comparative study of zooplankton population dynamicsExpand
Impact of agricultural practices on a small headwater stream: terrestrial and aquatic characteristics and self-purifying processes
The objective of this work was to study the drainage basin of a small crater lake whose short tributary runs through pastureland and ponds. The catchment was separated into four morphological unitsExpand

  • 1 August 1980
In the heated affluents of nuclear power plants of the river Loire, rotifers are abundant. Cosmopolitan species are numerically dominant, but a tropical fauna is also present, among which the genusExpand
Spatio-temporal Investigations on the Planktonic Organisms of the Middle Loire (France), During the Low Water Period: Biodiversity and Community Dynamics
The objective of this work was to analyse the distribution of the planktonic communities involved in the functioning of a 255-km river stretch and to get a better understanding of the influence ofExpand
Predation on ciliates by the suspension-feeding calanoid copepod Acanthodiaptomus denticornis
The effects of prey size, hunger, and algal presence on the predation of the suspension-feeding calanoid copepod Acanthodiaptomus denticornis on the ciliates Tetrahymena corlisii (32 μm mean length),Expand
