During the period from December 2003 to November 2004 a study has been held to examine the water quality and zooplankton of highly alkaline Lake Burdur. The lake showed thermal stratification between June and October. Six zooplankton taxa were determined, Hexarthra fennica, Brachionus plicatilis from Rotifera and Arctodiaptomus burduricus from Copepoda were the dominant species. Average zooplankton density was 399,074 ind.m-3 and they were 51% H. fennica, 9% B. plicatilis and 40% A. burduricus… Expand
Seasonal variations in zooplankton species of Lake Gölhisar, a shallow lake in Burdur, Turkey.
Seasonal variations of zooplankton species were investigated between Spring 2002 and Winter 2003 in Lake Golhisar, Burdur, Turkey and maximum number of taxa were observed from Rotifera and Cladocera during summer, while minimum taxa was determined from Copepoda during winter. Expand
The zooplankton composition of Lake Ladik (Samsun, Turkey)
The zooplankton composition of Lake Ladik, located in Samsun Province in northern Turkey, was investigated monthly between November 2009 and October 2010 and it was found that the trophic level of the lake is eutrophic. Expand
Temporal variation of the plankton communities in a small tropical reservoir (Malilangwe, Zimbabwe)
Redundancy Analysis (RDA) showed that water level, conductivity, pH, dissolved oxygen, temperature, reactive phosphorus and macrophyte cover accounted for most of the distribution of the plankton species. Expand
A 2300-year record of environmental change from SW Anatolia, Lake Burdur, Turkey
This work deals with changes recorded by lacustrine sediments from SW Anatolia in Turkey in the context of increasing stress on the Mediterranean environment in relation toExpand
Water quality and biodiversity of potamoplankton in an African sacred grove and world heritage site
AbstractDespite the increasing awareness of sacred groves as potential biodiversity hotspots, freshwater systems that drain such environments are not being duly explored for their biodiversityExpand
The occurrence and levels of cyanotoxin nodularin from Nodularia spumigena in the alkaline and salty Lake Burdur, Turkey
Although fish or other animal deaths were not detected during the episodes, it is concluded that N. spumigena blooming should be monitored in Burdur Lake for the ecosystem and environmental health. Expand
Temporal and spatial changes in old lake bottom effect on soil formation, development and morphology.
The aim of this study is to determine the effects of temporal and spatial differences on the pedogenetic development and properties of soils in the old and current lake bottom of Burdur Lake. WithinExpand
The Prediction of Plankton Diversity and Abundance in Mangrove Ecosystem
The abundance of phytoplankton and zooplankton have correlation with mangrove conditions in coastal area. The mangrove degradation give negative impact for abundance and diversity phytoplankton andExpand
An overview on the fisheries population of Arabian scad, Trachurus indicus Nekrasov, 1966 (F: Carangidae) caught by two different fishing methods from the Gulf of Suez, Red Sea, Egypt.
Trachurus indicus is a semi pelagic species caught by the bottom trawl and purse seine gears adopted in the Gulf of Suez, Red Sea. The objective of this study was to demonstrate and compare the fishExpand
A Checklist of Turkish Rotifers

Zooplankton Seasonal Abundance of South AmericanSaline Shallow Lakes
This study shows that the most saline lakes, where the halophylic Daphniamenucoensis is abundant, have also the most clear waters, which is significantly correlated with the water transparency but not with salinity. Expand
On the Limnology of Deep and Saline Lake Burdur in Turkey
Physico-chemical variables indicated that the lake is hyposaline and composed of some hydrochemically different water layers formed by groundwater sources located on the bottom of the lake. Expand
Aquatic invertebrates of Lake Gregory, northwestern Australia, in relation to salinity and ionic composition
At least 174 invertebrate species were recorded, including two mollusc species that were never collected live, and this species richness is much higher than that recorded from other Australian arid zone lakes, probably owing to long periods of inundation with fresh water. Expand
Threats to Burdur Lake ecosystem, Turkey and its waterbirds, particularly the white-headed duck Oxyura leucocephala
Abstract Burdur Lake, a closed-basin saline lake in south-west Anatolia, Turkey, is internationally important for its wintering waterbirds. It is the most important wintering site in the world forExpand
Calcium content of crustacean zooplankton and its potential role in species distribution
Within the Daphnia genus, the specific Ca content increased with increasing body size of the species, and thus the large-bodied species had especially high Ca demands, and could be competitively disadvantaged in softwater lakes relative to less Ca-demanding species. Expand

The influence of some abiotic factors on the occurrence of rotifers of Łęzna and Wŀodawa Lake District
Temperature, oxygen, electrolytic conductivity and calcium can have a direct influence on the occurrence of many species and forms of common pelagic rotifers occurring in lakes of different trophy and environment. Expand
Salinity as a determinant of the structure of biological communities in salt lakes
It is suggested that salinity is less significant as a determinant of community structure in salt lakes than has been assumed. Expand
