The structure of planktonic copepod assemblages in a by-passedDanube section, and in the adjacent floodplain water bodies,haschanged since the Gabcíkovo hydropower plant was putintooperation. The greatest change occurred in a former side arm(upstream of the village of Dobrohosí), which driedout.Changes were observed in the parapotamon-type side armssituatedbetween river km 1840 and 1820, fed artificially with waterfromthe head-race canal.
