Zooplankton in hollow-pools (using raised bogs in Vologda oblast, Russia, as an example)

Zooplankton, Zoobenthos, and Zooperiphyton


Data on the biodiversity, structure, and seasonal dynamics of zooplankton communities in hollowpools of raised bogs in Vologda oblast are presented for the first time. The fauna of zooplankton communities in hollow-pools totals 38 species of plankton invertebrates (Rotatoria, 12; Cladocera, 19; and Copepoda, 7), and is mainly presented by acidophilic and sphagnophilic species. The water bodies are characterized by a high abundance and biomass of zooplankton organisms. The diversity and productivity of the zooplankton community increase with an increase in the area and depth of hollow-ponds. The seasonal dynamics of the abundance and biomass of zooplankton is similar in all groups of hollow-pools and depends on changes in the dominant complex of invertebrates.
