Limnological characteristics and planktonic diversity of five tropical upland lakes from Brazilian Amazon
Upland lakes from Serra dos Carajás were shallow, weakly stratified and classified as polymictic type. Limnological characteristic of these lakes is highly influenced by lithological and morphometric parameters. TP is not solely controlling the phytoplankton biomass in these lakes. Species richness of zooplankton and phytoplankton in the studied lakes is most likely related to lake water levels and seasonal climate change.
