The occurrence and abundance of testate amoebae in the zooplankton of the floodplain of the Upper Paraná River was studied and compared with other zooplankton groups. Results showed that testate amoebae were dominant zooplankters in littoral zones of lentic and lotic environments. Species of Arcellidae were most abundant, followed by Difflugidae and Centropyxidae. The influence of environmental heterogeneity (lakes or river, littoral or pelagic zones and abiotic variables) on testate amoebae… CONTINUE READING
