    Two gypsum karst lakes and one non-gypsum karst lake were studied for copepod and cladoceran species composition in relation to specific habitat characteristics. The investigation was conducted from March to June 2007. Four copepod and six cladoceran species were recorded. Gypsum karst lakes are...

    Stratified lakes often receive more attention from limnologists although most of the world's lakes are indeed shallow. This study describes ecological processes in three shallow lakes, one dominated by macrophytes, one by phytoplankton, and one with both of them. Investigations focused on...

    In nature most organisms have to manage conflicting demands of food gathering, predator avoidance, and finding a favorable abiotic environment (oxygen, temperature, etc.) in order to maximize their fitness. In the vertical water column of lakes with high solar ultraviolet radiation (UV) and...

  • Gypsum-karst problems in constructing dams in the USA. Johnson, Kenneth // Environmental Geology;Sep2007, Vol. 53 Issue 5, p945 

    Gypsum is a highly soluble rock and is dissolved readily to form caves, sinkholes, disappearing streams, and other karst features that typically are also present in limestones and dolomites. Gypsum karst is widespread in the USA and has caused problems at several sites where dams were built, or...

    Zooplankton dynamics were examined in a small boreal lake over a 20-year period and interpreted in relation to climate change, brownification and recovery from acidification. Significant changes were recorded in the abundance of dominating crustacean species but not of rotifer species. According...

    Lake Mogilnoe (Kildin Island, the Barents Sea) is a marine stratified lake, a refuge for landlocked populations of marine organisms. Unlike other known marine lakes from polar areas, which communicate with the sea by water percolation at the surface, Mogilnoe has a subterranean connection with...
