Species composition, seasonal changes in abundance and biomass of planktonic protozooplankton (ciliates, heliozoans and testaceans), and dynamics of the dominant species were investigated over more than two years in two shallow mesotrophic lakes. The macrophyte-dominated lake Biandantang had more protozoan species than the algal lake Houhu, and the two lakes had significantly different protozoan abundance and biomass patterns, compositions and dominants. On annual average, ciliates formed 81.13… CONTINUE READING
