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 acute triclosan exposure on gill and liver tissues of zebrafish (Danio rerio)

    Show short summary

    Triclosan (TCS) is a broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent found in personal care, household, veterinary, medical, and industrial products. TCS has been detected in soil, sediment, and surface water. In the current work, the effects of acute exposure to TCS on gill and liver tissues of zebrafish were evaluated and the results indicated that TCS caused distinct histopathological alterations.

  • Fungal richness does not buffer the effects of streams salinization on litter decomposition

    Show short summary

    The depressive effect of salinization on detritus processing in streams overrides the potential buffer capacity of aquatic hyphomycetes higher richness, main drivers of litter decomposition. These findings, suggest that this stressor is as worldwide threat for stream ecosystem functioning independently of the fungal species abundance.

    Aquarium trade and fish farms as a source of non-native freshwater fish introductions in French Guiana

    Show short summary

    Investigating freshwater fish introductions in French Guiana revealed the presence of 11 non-native species. Four are established and one is rapidly increasing its spatial range. Five other species are known from few specimens, but belong to highly invasive species, making those first occurrences an early warning for potential establishment and spread.

  • Bottom-up and top-down effects on phytoplankton functional groups in Hulun Lake, China

    Show short summary

    This study examines the effects of bottom-up (physical-chemical) and top-down (predation) factors on the phytoplankton functional groups in a eutrophic lake. The study revealed that the bottom-up effects of physical-chemical variables on some phytoplankton functional groups was stronger than the top-down effects of zooplankton. The study further showed that zooplankton functional groups were positively correlated with phytoplankton biomass implying that the top-down control of phytoplankton by the zooplankton in Lake Hulun is not strong enough to produce a negative effect. These finding serve as a basis for identifying how phytoplankton dynamics are influenced, which have implications for developing sustainable management strategies and conserving services of Lake Hulun and other eutrophic fresh water lakes.

  • Effect of environment on functional traits of co-occurring water beetles

    Show short summary

    Our study on trait-environment relationship of co-occurring water beetles in anthropogenic ponds revealed that submerged vegetation, odonate nymphs, calcium hardness, salinity and chironomid larvae affected body size, swimming traits and functional feeding groups of the beetles in assemblages.
