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.

  • Interspecific effects of the cladoceran- (Moina macrocopa) and the rotifer- (Brachionus calyciflorus) conditioned medium on main life history variables in relation to temperature and algal density

    Show short summary

    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.

    Origin, diversity and distribution of freshwater epigean amphipods in Maghreb

    Show short summary

    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.

    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.
