Zooplankton abundance in the River Kars, Northeast Turkey: Impact of environmental variables

H Özbay, A Altindag

Abstract


The zooplankton of the River Kars was studied from May to October 2005 at five sampling stations. Thirty different zooplankton taxa were recorded, consisting of one copepod, four cladocera and twentyfive rotifers. The highest zooplankton densities were recorded in July and the lowest in October. Water
temperature and nutrients were the main environmental factors which affected zooplankton abundance in the river.
