The zooplankton species composition and abundance in Sombreiro River, in the Niger Delta of Nigeria was studied for a period of two years (August, 2007-July, 2009), using filtration technique. 25 :m mesh size plankton net was towed from a dugout boat at about 5-105 -1 for about a minute. The net content was washed out into a wide mouth plastic container and preserved in 10% formalin solution after proper labeling. A total of seventeen (17) species belonging to six (6) taxonomic groups were… Expand
