lacrimal lake  the triangular space at the medial angle of the eye, where the tears collect.
marginal lakes  discontinuous venous lacunae, relatively free of villi, near the edge of the placenta, formed by merging of the marginal portions of the intervillous space with the subchorial lake.
subchorial lake  the portion of the placenta, relatively free of villi, just beneath the chorionic plate; at the edge of the placenta it becomes continuous with irregular channels to form the marginal lakes.

According to Costa and Henry (2002), the intensity and frequency of the flood pulse in marginal lakes are related to the location of lakes on floodplains and their degree of connection with rivers.

Despite this, the curves for Oligochaeta species sampled in the island floodplain lakes and marginal floodplain lakes from Ilha Grande National Park, which shows corrected richness under the same abundance, demonstrated that richness in the island lakes was higher than in marginal lakes (Figure 6B).
Although the great water volume accumulated in the Jurumirim Reservoir can act as a buffer system to lateral inundation of the Paranapanema River, differently from natural floodplain systems (Henry, 2005), Granado and Henry (2008) showed that, in the same studied region, abiotic changes of water in marginal lakes are affected by the variation of hydrometric levels.
