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.

  • Plankton community responses to environmentally-relevant agrochemical mixtures

    Show short summary

    Nitrate-copper mix within legal limits resulted on higher zooplankton abundance by the end of the experiment. It is explained by nutrient enhancement what may counterbalance the copper toxicity on zooplankton, most likely increasing phytoplankton availability. Consequently, studies on assumed safe toxicant mixtures are needed as subtle effects can have relevant consequences on communities.

  • Internal phosphorus loading as the response to complete and then limited sustainable restoration of a shallow lake

    Show short summary

    This article relates to variability of the internal loading process, both seasonal and spatial in years 2011-2016, to determine the impact of sustainable restoration. It has been shown that the commencement of restoration intensifies the release of phosphorus from sediments. It was gradually reduced in subsequent years, even after limiting the treatments.

    Effects of herbicide mixtures on freshwater microalgae with the potential effect of a safener

    Show short summary

    Eleven agrochemicals tested on a microalga included a safener added in specific agrochemical formulations. One molecule was 2-fold more toxic than the mixture of all compounds. The safener decreased the toxicity of this herbicide that contains a halogen atom.

  • Competition between Brachionus calyciflorus and Brachionus angularis (Rotifera) in relation to algal food level and initial population density

    Show short summary

    At the low food level, Brachionus angularis outcompeted B. calyciflorus and vice versa at the high food level. At the intermediate food level, B. angularis was displaced by B. calyciflorus at nearly all the initial inoculation densities except for 75% B. angularis at which both species coexisted.

  • Factors affecting aquatic beetle communities of Northern Western Ghats of India (Arthropoda: Insecta: Coleoptera)

    Show short summary

    The environmental factors altitude, salinity, hydroperiod and depth of water body affect the distribution of aquatic beetles in Northern Western Ghats, India. Some congeners showed different affinity to the altitude while some groups of different body forms co-occurred.
