Saline lake ecosystems of the world
the Saline Lakes of Saskatchewan
Primary production in saline lakes
For more than fifty years man has been trying to measure primary production rates of waters varying from fresh to saline and from inland to marine. From indirect methods such as phytoplankton countsExpand
The Saline Lakes of Saskatchewan III. Chemical Characterization
The salinity of Saskatchewan saline lakes varies up to 342%0. Highly saline lakes are widely distributed. Some reach saturation at high summer temperatures but salt precipitation occurs on cooling.Expand
A Study of Benthic Communities in Some Saline Lakes in Saskatchewan and Alberta, Canada
The lakes were classified into four groups—subsaline, hyposaline, shallow hypo-mesosaline and hypersaline, reflecting the importance of salinity and also relative depth as major controlling factors, with chironomids by far the dominant contributors to biomass at salinities to 50 gl−1. Expand
Oxidation and sorption of arsenite by manganese dioxide as influenced by surface coatings of iron and aluminum oxides and calcium carbonate
Manganese dioxide (birnessite) was coated with two levels of Fe and Al oxides and CaCO3, and the influence of these coatings on the surface features and the reactivity of MnO2 with respect to theExpand
Influence of Citric Acid and Glycine on the Adsorption of Mercury (II) by Kaolinite under Various pH Conditions
This investigation was carried out to study the effect of different concentrations of citric acid and glycine, which are common in freshwaters, on the kinetics of the adsorption of Hg by kaoliniteExpand
Zooplankton distribution and abundance in saline lakes of Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada
There was a trend of decreasing species richness with increasing salinity, and about half the species were restricted to hyposaline waters, but some occurred only at intermediate salinities. Expand
