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.

  • Is nitrate a driver for pigments of phytoplankton (a case study from a small shallow European lake)?

    Show short summary

    We found that the phytoplankton's carotenoids in a small shallow lake correlate with nitrate-nitrogen. We also show that primary production and the nitrate content can be in stoichiometric relation. The results of the present study provide some materials on nitrogen limitation of freshwater aquatic systems.

  • Spatiotemporal dynamics in caddisfly (Insecta: Trichoptera) of a Cerrado stream, Brazil

    Show short summary

    The longitudinal distribution (along the stream) is more important than the temporal variation (along the seasons) to explain the variations of the composition of Thichoptera species in streams of the Brazilian Cerrado.

  • Faunal diversity of Cladocera (Crustacea: Branchiopoda) with notes on biogeographically important species in the floodplain wetlands of the Subansiri river basin, India

    Show short summary

    The study was intended to investigate faunal diversity of Cladocera in Subansiri flood plain wetlands. This is the first kind of study to document cladoceran fauna from these non-explored habitats.

  • Relationships of macrophyte species richness and environment in different water body types in the Central European region

    Show short summary

    We focused on effects of environmental factors on macrophyte species richness using generalized linear models. No obvious pattern of factors was observed for particular water body types. Our study showed that macrophyte species richness is shaped by complexity of factors and necessity of targeting survey and further generalisation of results not only on one specific water body.

    Mollusc fisheries and length–weight relationship in Tonle Sap flood pulse system, Cambodia

    Show short summary

    The study assesses the landings of three mollusc species in Tonle Sap. It demonstrates that the bivalve was abundant during dry season, while the gastropod Pila species was abundant during rainy season. The results indicate significant contributions of mollusc to ecology and people's livelihoods, and the population of the two groups being intensively harvested.
