The ecological condition of the Criş/Körös catchment area on the basis of planktonic fauna

In this paper a summary is given of the results of zooplankton research on the Cri$/Körös catchment area in 1994-1995. In this period 103 Rotatoria, and 15 Cladocera taxa were recorded all together. The Copepoda fauna was characterized by occurrence of juvenile forms. Different sections in the water...

Description
Summary:In this paper a summary is given of the results of zooplankton research on the Cri$/Körös catchment area in 1994-1995. In this period 103 Rotatoria, and 15 Cladocera taxa were recorded all together. The Copepoda fauna was characterized by occurrence of juvenile forms. Different sections in the watercourses could be separated on the basis of composition of the planktonic fauna. The human effects (damming-up, reservoirs, pollution, technical interventions) change the ecological state, increases the degree of trophity and saprobity, and decreases the diversity. On the basis of the zooplankton community the protection of Cri$/Körös catchment area is justified.
