Structure of rotifer assemblages in shallow waterbodies of semi-arid northwest Iran differing in salinity and vegetation cover

Abstract

Rotifers are important components of freshwater ecosystems and sensitive indicators of environmental changes. This study was carried out to test the hypothesis that, among environmental variables, salinity and aquatic vegetation have significant effects on rotifer diversity and abundance. We analyzed rotifer assemblages in the littoral zone of 22… (More)
