Abstract This paper aims to draw attention to the need to better know and understand Mexican saline lakes. It does this by outlining their distribution, abundance and location and their physical, chemical and biological characteristics. The influence of climatic factors on saline lakes is discussed. To sharpen the focus of the general discussion, a few Mexican saline lakes are discussed in more detail in each of the indicated topics. Saline lakes are found throughout Mexico, with the greatest… Expand
A note on the effects of an individual large rainfall event on saline Lake Alchichica, Mexico
The present study reports on perturbations of the water column by large rainfall at Lake Alchichica, a saline lake in Central Mexico. Alchichica is located in the “Llanos de San Juan,” aExpand
Nutrient limitation in a tropical saline lake: a microcosm experiment
There is increasing evidence that nitrogen limitation is of widespread occurrence in tropical lakes. Nonetheless, data on the deep tropical Lake Alchichica (Mexico) show that dissolved inorganicExpand
Phytoplankton and water quality in a shallow lake: A response to secondary salinization (Argentina)
This study analyzes the phytoplankton structure and dynamics, as well as the main limnological characteristics in Los Coipos Lake, located in the Reserva Ecológica Costanera Sur (Buenos Aires,Expand
Chemometric Analysis of Wetlands Remnants of the Former Texcoco Lake: A Multivariate Approach
The former Texcoco Lake (TL) belongs to a closed basin (Basin of México), with a semiarid climate and soil types Solonchaks and Vertisol, which confer saline and alkaline properties to theExpand
Benthos of a seasonally-astatic, saline, soda lake in Mexico
TLDR
It is concluded that whereas physical and chemical factors exerted the primary control on benthic macroinvertebrate community composition in Tecuitlapa Norte, another assembly of variables (e.g., water-level, temperature) influenced species distribution and abundance. Expand
Benthos of a seasonally-astatic, saline, soda lake in Mexico
TLDR
Seasonal abundance and biomass dynamics of the BMC showed an increasing trend until October (T. Apelopia) and November (C. occidentalis), when massive emergence occurred, just before the lake dried out. Expand
Diversity and distribution of phototrophic primary producers in saline lakes from Transylvania, Romania
Phototrophic primary producers are regarded as valuable indicators in aquatic habitats, since they are spread in a wide range of environmental conditions. However, the communities harbored by extremeExpand
Seasonal variations in zooplankton abundances in the Iturbide reservoir (Isidro Fabela, State of Mexico, Mexico).
TLDR
In general the density of zooplankton was higher during summer months (April to July) than during winter, and the Iturbide reservoir appeared to be mesotrophic. Expand
Physical and Chemical Characterization of Inland Waters
Well-known by the desert land, strong solar radiation, and cactuses, Mexico includes certainly such extreme arid condition in about two thirds of its territory – the central part and most of theExpand
Benthic crustaceans assemblage in a tropical, saline lake
TLDR
The composition, structure and spatial distribution of the benthic crustaceans assemblage of Alchichica, a tropical saline lake located in the easternmost portion of the Mexican highlands, is acknowledged. Expand

Littoral benthos of the saline crater lakes of the basin of Oriental, Mexico
TLDR
It seems the main factor controlling species richness and the density and biomass of organisms in Alchichica and Atexcac is the presence of aquatic vegetation, which does this by increasing habitat heterogeneity and providing food and protection against predators. Expand
Global water resources.
TLDR
Assessment activities over the past two decades reveal that freshwater resources are unevenly distributed, with much of the water located far from human populations, and two out of every three people will live in water-stressed areas by the year 2025. Expand
