Succession of planktonic rotifer populations in some lakes of the Eastern Rift Valley, Kenya

  title={Succession of planktonic rotifer populations in some lakes of the Eastern Rift Valley, Kenya},
  author={Thomas Nogrady},
The quantitative succession of the spring and summer rotifer plankton and its biomass in six lakes of the Eastern Rift Valley of Kenya is discussed. The lakes can be divided into two groups: the low conductivity slightly alkaline lakes Naivasha, Oloidien and the Winam Gulf of Lake Victoria; and the high conductivity, highly alkaline-saline lakes Nakuru, Elmenteita and Bogoria. The former three show a qualitatively rich, typical warmwater rotifer association dominated by Brachionids and Filinia… CONTINUE READING
