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.

  • Impacts of different extracellular polysaccharides on colony formation and buoyancy of Microcystis aeruginosa

    Show short summary

    Tightly cell-bound extracellular polysaccharides (TB-EPS) enhanced colony formation of Microcystis aeruginosa NIES-843, which is strictly related to buoyancy. Microscope observation shows the colony induced by TB-EPS likes wild Microcystis. Temperature and light affected colony formation and buoyancy.

  • Determination of changes in Arthrospira platensis antioxidant activity and growth parameters due to oxidative stress arising from Lambda cyhalothrin

    Show short summary

    This study aims to determine the toxicity of Lambda cyhalothrin may cause in cyanobacteria, one of the primary producers in lake ecosystems. According to our results, we may conclude that Lambda cyhalothrin inhibited the growth of A. platensis and it caused oxidative stress in the organism.

  • Age and growth of a newly described barb, Capoeta coadi (Cyprinidae), in Beheshtabad River, Tigris basin

    Show short summary

    The Coad barb, Capoeta coadi Alwan, Zareian and Esmaeili, 2016, is a newly described endemic fish in Beheshtabad River, Tigris basin of Iran. Tigris basin not only is one of the largest and most important basins of Iran, but also of the Asia and Middle East. However, there is no information on the biology of this fish. In this study we determined some growth characteristics of C. coadi including the age and size compositions, sex ratio, growth pattern, length-weight relationship, von Bertalanffy growth model and growth performance index, in Beheshtabad River, a tributary of Karun River in Tigris basin. This information provide the basic data for management, conservation and possibly aquaculture of this fish in the region.

  • Zooplankton species distribution, richness and composition across tropical shallow lakes: A large scale assessment by biome, lake origin, and lake habitat

    Show short summary

    This study provided a zooplankton species list from 180 lakes in northeastern Brazil and showed that species distribution, richness and composition vary according to biome (Atlantic Forest or Caatinga), the lake origin (natural or man-made lakes), and the lake habitat (pelagic or littoral).

  • Limnological characteristics, community metabolism and management strategies of a coastal sinkhole in Cuba (Cenote Jennifer)

    Show short summary

    The Cenote Jennifer is a lentic sinkhole with brackish to euhaline water. It is an oligotrophic system with very low productivity. Special care should be taken in sustainable and scientific use of this sinkhole.
