Annales de Limnologie - International Journal of Limnology

Annales de Limnologie - International Journal of Limnology publishes papers on the ecology of freshwater systems, ranging from studies of aquatic organisms, physical and chemical works which relate to the biological environment, to ecological applications and frameworks for water management directives.

Journal founded by University Paul Sabatier, Toulouse in 1964.

    Intra-annual fluctuations dominating temporal dynamics of benthic diatom assemblages in a Chinese mountainous river

    Show short summary

    Intra-annual fluctuations dominated temporal dynamics of benthic diatom communities. Moreover, component species within the communities displayed distinct dynamics and were driven by different environmental variables. Our findings provide new insights to community dynamics in stream ecosystems.

    Mouthpart morphology and food habits of a Pampean population of Cloeon dipterum (Linnaeus, 1761) (Ephemeroptera: Baetidae)

    Show short summary

    This work allows us to know the morphological and behavioral feeding characteristics of Cloeon dipterum, assign it a Functional Feeding Group and establish possible trophic relationships with other organisms in the aquatic ecosystems of Buenos Aires (Argentina).

    Effects of salinity on species composition of zooplankton on Hau River, Mekong Delta, Vietnam

    Show short summary

    Zooplankton was found to change proportionally with salinity changes in the Mekong Delta (MD) estuarine areas. Rotifera and Cladocera were inversely proportional while Protozoa and Copepoda were positively proportional to salinity. This first time ever findings can be applied to predict change in biological productivity of the estuarine ecosystem in the MD.

    Characterization of testicular histology and spermatogenesis in the Levantine frog, Pelophylax bedriagae (Amphibia: Anura: Ranidae)

    Show short summary

    Amphibians are major members of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. They serve as both predator and prey in both ecosystems. Therefore, they provide the transfer of energy between these systems. However, there are few studies on the gametogenesis of amphibian. Therefore, histological characteristics of Pelophylax bedriagae testes were studied.

    Occurrence of potentially toxic cyanobacteria Microcystis aeruginosa in aquatic ecosystems of central Kerala (south India)

    Show short summary

    The occurrence of M. aeruginosa bloom in two freshwater ponds along central Kerala has been addressed along with the variations in the hydrobiological characteristics of the ecosystem during bloom and non-bloom conditions of the species. Histological studies highlight hepatotoxicity of M. aeruginosa signifying regular monitoring of bloom events in these ecosystems.
