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.

  • Long-term wind induced internal response mechanisms at Meiliang Bay of large, shallow Lake Taihu

    Show short summary

    Wind is the key external driver playing vital role for internal ecosystem transitions. The decreased wind speeds along with slow directional switching intensifies algal blooms.The temporal trends of wind, temperature and Chl-a have been found highly connected at Lake Taihu. The changes in nutrients and lower mixing scenarios trigger the growth of Chl-a. The onshore lower winds help in formation of cyanobacterial colonies.

  • Consumption and performance responses of the amphipod Echinogammarus berilloni change during laboratory incubation

    Show short summary

    We test the effects of leaf quality and incubation duration on E. berilloni. Resource quality was positively related to consumption. Body mass condition changed with diet. Consumption, mass body condition and RNA:BM significantly interacted with incubation duration. Special care should be taken when comparing experiments with different duration.

  • Seasonal succession of phytoplankton functional groups in Lake Fuxian and its driving factors

    Show short summary

    The concept of phytoplankton functional groups was well applicable in our study of Lake Fuxian and it was suggested that predominant assemblages succession were acting as T (October) to H1 (January) to H1 (April) to Lo (July). Furthermore, according to RDA analysis, it was indicated that WT and TN/TP might be key driving factors in the phytoplankton changes of Lake Fuxian.

  • Feeding inhibition tests as a tool for seston quality evaluation in lentic ecosystems: salinization impact

    Show short summary

    Daphnia sp. feeding rate was affected by low NaCl concentrations and seston quality seems to be more important in their feeding rate performance than changes in water parameters. The here-obtained results showed that feeding inhibition tests has a sensible cost-effective methodology to assess the effects of abiotic stresses in freshwater ecosystems.

  • Spatio-temporal distribution and species traits of water beetles along an oligotrophic hydrosystem: a case study

    Show short summary

    This study presents the first comprehensive investigation of water beetles in oligotrophic hydrosystems with tufa formation in southeastern Europe. Biological and ecological traits of so far poorly studied species are revealed.The results provide a basis for future investigations, and demonstrate the potential of Elmidae as water quality indicators in this region.
