The psammic rotifer structure in three Lobelian Polish lakes differing in pH

  title={The psammic rotifer structure in three Lobelian Polish lakes differing in pH},
  author={Irena Bielańska-Grajner},
Thirty five species of rotifers were found in the psammon of three lakes of differing pH in open water. The largest number of rotifer species and their highest abundance was found in lake Rekowskie which had a slightly acid to neutral water pH. The lowest quantity and the number of rotifers species were observed in the lake with lowest pH. The results suggest that pH is one of the most important factors affecting the number and diversity of psammic rotifers in these lakes.
