    We measured bacterioplankton (phylotypes detected by fluorescent in situ hybridisation, morphometric forms, abundance and production) in samples collected in summer in the littoral and pelagic zones of 10 subtropical shallow lakes of contrasting area (from 13 to 80,800 ha). Compared to the...

    Phycological analyses were conducted in the shallow, eutrophic Lake Rosnowskie Duże (western Poland). Water samples were collected in 2002 and 2003 during the growing season from the submerged vegetation zone (Ceratophyllum demersum L.) and comparatively from the emergent vegetation zone...

    We investigated the role of trophic state in structuring the cladoceran assemblages in 35 relatively deep lakes of low nutrient levels in Southern Norway. The lakes cover gradients of altitude, latitude, longitude, area and total phosphorus concentration. The environmental control of the...

    The great lakes of the world represent a global heritage of surface freshwater and aquatic biodiversity. Species lists for 14 of the world's largest lakes reveal that 15% of the global diversity (the total number of species) of freshwater fishes, 9% of noninsect freshwater invertebrate...

    While the role of littoral food sources in shallow lakes has been widely investigated, uncertainties still exist about the relevance of such sources for deep lakes. Here we report quantitative estimates for the contribution of littoral versus pelagic sources in supporting the three most...

  • Diel horizontal distribution of microcrustaceans and predators throughout a year in a shallow neotropical lake. Arcifa, M. S.; Bunioto, T. C.; Perticarrari, A.; Minto, W. J. // Brazilian Journal of Biology;Feb2013, Vol. 73 Issue 1, p103 

    The focus of this study is to investigate if microcrustaceans undergo diel horizontal migration (DHM) in a tropical shallow lake on a yearly basis and analyse the adaptive value regarding predation. Abundance of invertebrate predators, chaoborid larvae and water mites, and microcrustaceans...

  • Lake size and fish diversity determine resource use and trophic position of a top predator in high-latitude lakes. Eloranta, Antti P.; Jones, Roger I.; Kahilainen, Kimmo K.; Amundsen, Per-Arne; Knudsen, Rune; Harrod, Chris // Ecology & Evolution (20457758);Apr2015, Vol. 5 Issue 8, p1664 

    Prey preference of top predators and energy flow across habitat boundaries are of fundamental importance for structure and function of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, as they may have strong effects on production, species diversity, and food-web stability. In lakes, littoral and pelagic...

  • Relatedness between contemporary and subfossil cladoceran assemblages in Turkish lakes. Davidson, Thomas; Özen, Arda; Jeppesen, Erik; Beklioğlu, Meryem; Çakıroğlu, A.; Tavşanoğlu, Ü.; Levi, Eti; Bucak, Tuba; Akyıldız, Gürçay // Journal of Paleolimnology;Dec2014, Vol. 52 Issue 4, p367 

    Cladocerans are valuable indicators of environmental change in lakes. Their fossils provide information on past changes in lake environments. However, few studies have quantitatively examined the relationships between contemporary and sub-fossil cladoceran assemblages and no investigations are...

  • Pelagic and littoral cladocerans (Crustacea, Anomopoda and Ctenopoda) from reservoirs of the Northwest of São Paulo State, Brazil. Castilho-Noll, Maria Stela Maioli; Câmara, Carolina Figueira; Chicone, Maira Favaron; Shibata, Érico Hissashi // Biota Neotropica;2010, Vol. 10 Issue 1, p21 

    There are few studies on the zooplankton from the northwestern region of São Paulo State, Brazil, compared to other regions of the State. Cladocerans are a very representative zooplankton group with high species diversity. Most of this diversity can be found at littoral zones of lakes and...

  • The trophic niche of Arctic charr in large southern Scandinavian lakes is determined by fish community and lake morphometry. Sandlund, Odd; Eloranta, Antti; Borgstrøm, Reidar; Hesthagen, Trygve; Johnsen, Stein; Museth, Jon; Rognerud, Sigurd // Hydrobiologia;Dec2016, Vol. 783 Issue 1, p117 

    The influence of interspecific interactions and habitat characteristics on the ecological niche of species' populations is a controversial issue in ecology. We explored the niche use of Arctic charr ( Salvelinus alpinus L.) in seven relatively large and deep lakes in southern Norway. We aimed to...
