Abstract

Information on the distribution of 225 species of planktic, periphytic and benthic rotifers from diverse waters in south and central Sweden was analyzed for temperature preference and tolerance. Most rotifers have a very wide tolerance range. Certainly differences in temperature dependence exist between separate species. However, these differences are, in a regional material like this, generally less distinct than what has been found for the distribution within individual lakes.
