Figures and Tables from this paper

The list of 66 species cited in this study, mainly represents the first records for Algeria, because only a few studies about rotifers in Algeria had been performed prior to the present one. Expand
Phytoplankton chlorophyte structure as related to ENSO events in a saline lowland river (Salado River, Buenos Aires, Argentina)
A detailed analysis of the chlorophytes in the entire basin indicated that changes in density and species dominance occurred on a regional scale although diverse chlorophyte assemblages were identified in the different sectors of the Salado River basin. Expand
Larger and heavier individuals of the invasive shrimp Palaemon macrodactylus in the Salado River, Argentina.
Individuals from the low-salinity Salado River were longer and heavier than those from fully marine areas of Argentina as well as from other habitats worldwide. Expand
Influence of regional factors on zooplankton structure in a saline lowland river: the Salado River (Buenos Aires province, Argentina)
Knowledge of regional factors influencing zooplankton structure in a semiarid river must include both the main channel and any tributaries in order to identify spatial and temporal patterns alongExpand
Preliminary Zooplankton Study of Six "Mercedinas" Lakes (San Luis, Argentina)
A situation that does not match that proposed by the model of alternative states of shallow lakes: the lakes where O. bonariensis, a main predator of zooplankton, showed the lowest water transparency, although a large filtering cladoceran such as Daphnia spinulata was present in one o f them.

It is suggested that the natural seasonal changes in temperature and food generate successive time windows, which may be capitalized by the different grazer species, resulting in predictable phenology of grazer populations. Expand
Diversity indices of pelagic rotifers in Camp Balloki Water Park, Lahore, Pakistan
Evaluated rotifer species diversity indices of Camp Balloki Water Park and infer the state of the water according to rotifers and physicochemical parameters showed that temporal differences were present in the rotifer community, which may be seasonal in nature. Expand
Effect of underground salty mine water on the rotifer communities in the Bolina River (Upper Silesia, Southern Poland)
The research was carried out in the Bolina River, which is the most anthropogenically saline river in Europe, from 2017 to 2018. This river flows through the highly industrialised and urbanised partExpand
Species Diversity and Community Assemblage of Planktonic Rotifers from Vembanad Estuary-Kerala, India
Multivariate Bio-Env analysis showed that temperature, conductivity, salinity and phosphate best determined the abundance and distribution of rotifers in the Vembanad estuary. Expand
Structure of rotifer assemblages in shallow waterbodies of semi-arid northwest Iran differing in salinity and vegetation cover
The results of this study suggested that environmental changes could be significant on the micro-biogeographical level, and that the interaction of salinity and observed human impact, i.e., trophic level, promote rotifer abundance as sensitive indicators of environmental changes. Expand


Planktonic rotifers of Samborombón River Basin (Argentina)
The rotifer fauna of the river Samborombón and its tributaries (La Plata river basin) was analysed, and 47 species of monogonont rotifers were identified. Results indicate that differences inExpand
Planktonic rotifers of Samborombón River Basin (Argentina)
Results indicate that differences in salinity and ion composition between waters of the main river and that of its tributaries account for differences in the species composition. Expand
Zooplankton associations in East African lakes spanning a wide salinity range
The Zooplankton of 38 East African lakes has been analysed in terms of species richness and dominance and the number of species of rotifers begins to decline at a conductivity below 1000 μScm-1 and falls to 2 or 3 species above 3000 μS cm-1 Similar reductions occur in the Copepoda and Cladocera.

Variaciones temporales y distribución horizontal del zooplancton en algunos cauces secundarios del rio Paraná Medio
Abstract The object of this work was to determine the principal characteristics of the Zooplankton of several secondary rivers of the Middle Parana River. Special emphasis was given to the influenceExpand
Zooplankton abundance in the Caura River, Venezuela
Zooplankton abundance was studied in the Caura River, which drains 47,500 km2 of undisturbed tropical moist forest within Venezuela. During 2 yr of sampling, 72 species were recorded, of which 10Expand
River-backwater pond interactions in the lower basin of the Salado River (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
Combinations of geomorphological features (flush and backwater ponds), the hydrological regime and conductivity had different degrees of control on the plankton, according to their incidence in the community as determined by their transport from the upper basin, the exchange with storage zones and the importance of autogenic processes.

Zooplankton abundance in the River Danube, Austria: the significance of inshore retention
Summary 1. Zooplankton density was examined in a free-flowing section of the River Danube, Austria. Spatial and temporal patterns were used to identify mechanisms regulating zooplankton dynamics.Expand
Seasonal variation in composition and production of planktonic communities in the lower River Rhine
Algal grazing by metazoan herbivores was substantial only during spring, while the role of phagotrophic microplankton and cell lysis were indicated as major factors responsible for the downstream decline of phytoplankton blooms in the lower Rhine. Expand
Relationships between zooplankton community structure and phytoplankton in two lime-treated eutrophic hardwater lakes
