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.
The concept of functional feeding groups was used to classify and reveal the seasonal variation of phytoplankton functional groups in relation to environmental parameters. Phytoplankton species were grouped into 17 functional groups that vary significant spatially and seasonally. The pattern of phytoplankton functional groups seasonal successions decided by the five predominant functional groups. Total nitrogen, ammonium nitrogen, nitrate nitrogen, N:P ratio, water depth and transparency were the major factor influencing phytoplankton community in this basin.

NO2−–N and TN in Spring, SD and TP in Summer had significant difference between 8 lakes and 5 reservoirs located in the Yangtze River delta (P < 0.05). All 13 studied water bodies were dominated by cyanophyta, whose Microcystis may determine the dominance of Bosmina fatalis. Eutrophic level should be in relation to the significant difference of plankton between 8 lakes and 5 reservoirs (P < 0.05). Five factors (cyanophyta, SD, WT, pH and DO) were significantly correlated with crustacean zooplankton abundance (P < 0.05). This research provided basic data of the 13 water bodies and studied the relationship between zooplankton and physicochemical factors as well as phytoplankton, providing scientific basis for the monitoring of eutrophic waterbodies located in the Yangtze river delta.

According to indoor simulation experiments, we found that the morphology changes and growth of C. vulgaris affected by C. demersum methanol extracts were dependent of initial algal density (IAD) and the macrophyte biomass. However, the individual or combined effects of those active compounds played roles in the interaction require further investigation.

Interspecific allelopathic effects of B. calyciflorus and M. macrocopa were dependent on the origin and concentration of allelochemical, life history variable, temperature and food density. M. macrocopa had higher sensitivity to the allelochemicals from B. calyciflorus. The underlying mechanisms should be further investigated.

Our results showed theimportant diversity of Maghreb despite the scarcity of fresh waters and the weak knowledge on this area. We highlighted a very high rate of endemism with 52% of species occurring at on only 1 or 2 sites. We found enough data to discuss some hypotheses about the factors underlying this endemism and the biogeographical origin of species.
