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.

  • Crustacean zooplankton community in relation to physicochemical factors and phytoplankton of 13 waterbodies located in the Yangtze River delta

    Show short summary

    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.

  • Growth and morphological responses of Chlorella vulgaris at different initial algal densities to treatment with Ceratophyllum demersum methanol extracts

    Show short summary

    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 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.
