Ecology, Population Studies & History


Weekly sampling and simultaneous measurements of temperature, pH, and conductivity were made at three stations in the reedbelt, between 1980–82. 20 cladoceran and 14 copepod species were encountered, of whichCyclops vicinus vicinus was found in the lake for the first time. Of the measured environmental features, temperature showed the greatest seasonal changes; pH and conductivity were less variable. There were, both quantitatively and qualitatively, constant differences between the three stations, although they lay close to each other.
