  • A CENTURY OF VARIATIONS IN SOME ZOOPLANKTON AND ZOOBENTHOS ORGANISMS IN LAKE COMABBIO (NORTHERN ITALY) READ FROM THEIR REMAINS IN THE LAKE SEDIMENT

Abstract

To follow the variation of zooplankton and benthos during the last 100 years in Lake Comabbio (Northern Italy), the remains present in a sediment core were examined. Alona and Chydorus decreased in recent years for the submerged macrophytes extinction.Bosmina was more abundant in recent sediments than in older sediments. In the past, benthonic population density was low as well as at present
