The copepod communities of karstic lakes along the eastern Adriatic coast were studied. Lakes were divided in several groups according to their morphology (deep, shallow, barrage and reservoirs), production (oligotrophic, mesotophic and eutrophic), and salinity of water: freshwater and brackish. Copidodiaptomus steueri, Eucyclops serrulatus and Macrocyclops albidus belong to the group that inhabited most of the lakes under the study, regardless of lake type. The shallow karstic lakes are… 
Morpho-functional classifications of phytoplankton assemblages of two deep karstic lakes
FG and MFG classifications showed a high level of similarity, thus proving to be applicable to deep karstic lakes, and the best results in describing the phytoplankton succession were obtained using MBFG approach, although it is less sensitive in describing variability of individual descriptive algal groups in this environment.


Crustacean Plankton and the Eutrophication of St. Lawrence Great Lakes
Fourteen copepod and 13 cladoceran species were found in the summer plankton of lakes Superior, Huron, Erie, and Ontario, and a general trend was seen from oligotrophic Lake Superior to eutrophic Lake Erie.
Eudiaptomus hadzici (BREHM) (Crustacea : Copepoda) from the Dinarid Karstic area
During biological research in 1995/96 of Lake Visovac in karstic Dinarid area, a large number of calanoid and cyclopoid copepods were obtained from plankton. Among these materials, the uncommon high
The loss of submerged plants with eutrophication II. Relationships between fish and zooplankton in a set of experimental ponds, and conclusions
A new hypothesis is put forward to account for the switch from aquatic plant to phytoplankton dominance in eutrophicated shallow lakes and suggests that each state is buffered against increased loading by mechanisms involving plant and algal physiology and zooplankon grazer populations.
Long-Term Experiments on Calanoid-Cyclopoid Interactions
Zooplankton species composition was manipulated in an 8-mo long series of experiments in outdoor 450-L tanks to evaluate the impact of cyclopoids and calanoids and the effects of Daphnia and mosquitofish on the calanoid-cyclopoid interaction.

Large species and small species exhibited different trends in life history characters, and large species had larger clutches, larger eggs, and a greater sex size dimorphism than small species, while small species had a greater relative egg size.
Method for Estimating Dry Weight of Freshwater Planktonic Crustaceans from Measures of Length and Shape
A method of estimating the dry weight of planktonic crustaceans by using geometric figures of their approximate shape, which may be useful for estimating the biomass of zooplankters from other lakes when size and shape and method of preservation are similar to those of the authors' organisms.

Alkalinity measurements are used in the interpretation and control of water and wastewater treatment processes and can be interpreted in terms of specific substances only when the chemical composition of the sample is known.
The use and interpretation of principal component analysis in applied research
The paper provides various interpretations of principal components in the analysis of multiple measurements. A number of generalizations of principal components have been made specially in the study
