By use of the polyurethane foam unit (PF unit) method, structural and functional data for protozoan communities were assessed as indicators of the effect of restoration techniques in mandarin fish culture ponds. A total of 165 species of protozoa were observed, including 76 species of ciliates, 57 species of phytomastigophorans, 14 species of zoomastigophorans, and 18 species of sarcodinas. In June, 97 protozoan species colonized the PF units. In August, the number of colonizing species was… CONTINUE READING
