- ... Zooplankton may at times graze cyanobacteria. However, their top-down effects are considered to be low, particularly in tropical regions dominated by small-size grazers that may be unable to consume efficiently filamentous or colonial species. Recently, cyanobacteria blooms were reported in the Senegal River hydrosystem. We conducted feeding experiments to assess the ability of copepods (Pseudodia ...

- ... Old Fort Lake, a small (1.6 ha), shallow, and recreational water body in Delhi (India) was studied through monthly surveys in two consecutive years (January, 2000-December, 2001). Precipitation is the major source of water for this closed basin lake. In addition, ground water is used for replenishing the lake regularly. This alkaline, hyposaline hard water lake contains very high ionic concentrati ...
