The spatial variation of zooplankton community, over a hydrological cycle, evidenced higher values of species richness in lotic environments, where the occurrence of non-planktonic species is favored by the high current flow.
In part its infrequency may be the product of the relatively minimal collection effort expended in lentic environments and thus possibly an artifact of sampling bias toward lotic localities.
This is the first introduction of the round goby into a lotic system with more species richness than many streams in the northeastern United States and provides an opportunity to give valuable insight to putative consequences of the round goby on native benthic fauna.
Thus, this research indicates that the creation of dams, even when small, can significantly affect the richness and abundance of fish species from small lotic systems, such as streams, by modifying their environments.
Flow refugia and the microdistribution of lotic macroinvertebrates.
(1996) developed a DSS called AQUATOOL, which is an interface for editing, simulating, reviewing and analyzing basin management simulation models, including a lentic and lotic water quality simulation module, that is widely used in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America (Paredes-Arquiola et al., 2010a, 2010b; Nakamura, 2010; Sulis & Sechi, 2013).The GESCAL and SIMGES modules are intercon-nected, sharing georeferenced quality and quantity data through a graphical interface (Paredes-Arquiola et al., 2010a).
Population ecotoxicology of the common snapping turtle in agriculturally impacted lotic ecosystems.
argentinum populations studied can be attributed to conditions present in lotic (channel) and lentic (lake) environments.
The longitudinal variability in ecological conditions in streams is due to stream size (headwaters, medium-sized streams, and large rivers), as is the attendant variability in the structural and functional attributes of lotic insect communities (Vannote et al., 1980; Ward, 1992).
Fifteen species belonging to thirteen genera, and five families were identified from the lentic and lotic water bodies of Suleman mountain range, Dera Ghazi Khan Region.
The sixty-three samples analyzed and statistically treated for periphyton richness and abundance were grouped by two ecosystem typology: lentic and lotic (Table 1).
