The plankton rotifers Keratella cochlearis and Polyarthra vulgaris were sampled at 10 cm below the surface at different distances from two dissimilar shores and in the centre of a small eutrophic lake. Light and depth were measured at each sampling point. In each case the numbers of rotifers per liter increased with distance from the shore. There was a significant correlation between the numbers for the two species for the two shores, but none in the centre. In the case of one shore there was a…

The diurnal distribution of the zooplankton community of the littoral zone of Lake Wielkowiejskie (Wielkopolski National Park, Poland)
Abstract The main aim of this study was to analyze the diel distribution of zooplankton communities within the zones of Nymphaea albae, Myriophyllum verticillatum, and Typha angustifolia, and,

Environmental factors influencing the vertical migration of planktonic rotifers in a hypereutrophic tarn
The diel vertical migration of planktonic rotifers in a small, hypereutrophic tarn was investigated on four occasions in 1983. When the tarn was isothermal the rotifers were distributed throughout
Diurnal Migration in Three Species of Rotifers in Sunfish Lake, Ontario
The pattern of diurnal migration in three species of rotifers has been studied from six 24-hr samples obtained in different months to cover a wide range of seasonal conditions. Velocities and
Do Rotifers show “avoidance of the shore”?
TLDR
Experiments in the field show, that Rotifers—which form, together with crustaceans, the main mass of zooplankton—can also be divided not only by morphological criteria but also as a result of their horizontal distribution into inhabitants of either the littoral or the pelagic zone of a lake.
