Taxonomic patterns of protozoan community structure for monitoring water quality were studied from May to September 2003 in Songhua River, northeast China. Protozoan communities were sampled monthly using PFU (polyurethane foam unit) method at the four stations with different pollution/eutrophication levels. Physical–chemical parameters (e.g., water temperature, dissolved oxygen (DO), pH, biological oxygen demand (BOD5), chemical oxygen demand (COD), ammonium nitrogen (NH4-N), and nitrate… CONTINUE READING
