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.

    Effects of mixing intensity on colony size and growth of Microcystis aeruginosa

    Show short summary

    Except for the highest mixing intensity group (1.28 m s−1), the colony sizes and growth rate of M. aeruginosa in mixing intensity groups (0.16, 0.32, 0.64 m s−1) was significantly higher than those in controls. This study suggested that modest mixing can significantly influence colony size and the growth of M. aeruginosa in freshwater ecosystem.

  • Bio-assessment of surface waters in the south-east of Gaziantep (Turkey) using diatom metrics

    Show short summary

    Ecological characterizations of the sampling stations were introducedby TIT–Trophic Index Turkey, TI–Trophic Index, and EPI-D–Eutrophication and/or Pollution Index-Diatom. Trophic index Turkey tested in this study provides information about assessment of surface watersin the south-east of the Gaziantep catchment (Turkey). Comparedto EPI-D, TIT was more competitive and had significantpositive correlation with P-PO4. Trophic Index Turkey could be a useful biological metricfor freshwater monitoring.

  • Effects of waterborne luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone on reproduction of the rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus (Monogononta: Brachionidae)

    Show short summary

    The impact of endocrine disrupting compounds (ECDs) on aquatic biota it is complex. In rotifersLH induces the production of males, whereas FSH does not; the abnormal cohort of rotifers descended from LH does not reproduce while that of FSH does, LH does produces cysts while FSH does not during 4-day exposure.

  • Using multiple indicators to assess spatial and temporal changes in ecological condition of a drinking water reservoir in central China

    Show short summary

    The modified Carlson trophic status index, Shannon diversity index, and phytoplankton functional group index were used to assess ecological condition of a drinking water reservoir in central China. Applying all three indices together yielded a comprehensive ecological assessment, which could do so for other similar reservoirs.

  • Reproductive biology of thin sharpbelly, Toxabramis swinhonis Günther, 1873 in a shallow lake (Biandantang Lake) along the middle reach of the Yangtze River basin (China): implications for fisheries management

    Show short summary

    Overall sex ratio of T. swinhonis was 1.03:1, not significantly different from 1:1. T. swinhonis was a spring-summer (March–August) multiple spawner with indeterminate fecundity. Sizes at first maturity for female and male were 84.47 and 81.86 mm, respectively. To catch T. swinhonis or release its predator is proposed for population control.
