The seasonal succession of the potamoplankton of the Middel Loire was studied fortnightly from June to October 1995, a period of low water flow. The increase in dissolved oxygen, suspended matter, BOD5 and chlorophyll a, associated with the decrease in nutrients downstream, are typical of eutrophic rivers. Algae were the principal components of the suspended matter flux in the river. Their density increased from the upper site of Dampierre-en-Burly to the lower site of Saint-Laurent des Eaux… CONTINUE READING
