Seasonal dynamics of Zooplankton functional groups in relation to environmental variables in Xiquanyan Reservoir, Northeast China

Patteson Chula Mwagona, Ma Chengxue and Yu Hongxian

The concept of functional feeding groups was used to classify and model the seasonal variation of zooplankton functional groups in relation to environmental variables.

Zooplankton species were grouped into 8 functional groups that vary spatially and followed a predictable seasonal pattern.

Total nitrogen, total phosphorus, ammonium, chlorophyll-a and water transparency were the major factor influencing zooplankton community.

Top-down control of phytoplankton by zooplankton in Xiquanyan reservoir is not strong enough to produce negative effect.
