The population growth patterns of four cladocerans, viz. Alona rectangula, Ceriodaphnia dubia, Moina macrocopa and Daphnia pulex on wastewaters from a treatment plant at Iztacalco, Mexico City were analyzed in this study. Crude wastewater (tank A) did not support A. rectangula and all animals in the replicates died after 5 days. A. rectangula with partially(More)
The ability of rotifers and cladocerans to convert primary to secondary production in wastewaters was tested. Scenedesmus acutus was cultured on Bold's (defined) medium, wastewater from the tertiary phase of water treatment and a mixture of both. The algal growth rates (µ) ranged from 0.4 to 0.7 day⁻¹, being highest in defined medium. The demographic(More)
Seagrasses play important ecological roles in shallow coastal ecosystems from tropical to sub-polar seas. Ruppia filifolia (Phil.) Skottsberg is the seagrass with the world’s southernmost distribution but with virtually unknown biology and ecology. The goal of this study was to identify the ecological roles that R. filifolia might play in sub-Antarctic(More)
Valle de Bravo reservoir is used for aquatic, fishing and as a source of drinking water to Mexico City. Annual data on composition, abundances, species richness and diversity of the phytoplankton surface community and some physical-chemical parameters variations were discussed. Results showed a spatial homogeneity for environmental descriptors and(More)
