Biomass Analysis of Dominant Zooplanktonic Organisms Living in Lake Mogan (Turkey)

Authors: Nuray Emir AKBULUT

Abstract: In this study carbon-length regression was established for Arctodiaptomus bacilliferand length-weight relationships were established for Diaphanosoma lacustris, Keratella quadrata and Filinia longiseta, which are abundant in Lake Mogan. Great individual variation was determined in the carbon and nitrogen contents of Arctodiaptomus bacillifer, Furthermore, the length-weight regressions varied greatly for the, other zooplanktonic organisms according to sampling dates and, for some, to sampling points.

Keywords: Biomass, carbon, nitrogen, dry weight, zooplankton.
