Samples were collected monthly from the water-sediment interface at six stations along the Mincio River (northern Italy) during a 1-year study of the ciliated protozoan communities. Four stations were located upstream of the Mantua lakes in the hyporhithron fluvial zone and two stations were located in the potamon fluvial zone between the Mantua lakes and the confluence with the Po River. A total of 133 species of active trophic ciliates belonging to 76 genera were found. Community structures… CONTINUE READING
