Abstract: The zooplankton assemblages in Chilean Patagonian lakes are characterised mainly by their low biodiversity and high predominance of calanoids copepods, a pattern that has been studied for large and deep lakes between 38-51° S, and shallow ponds at 51° S. The aim of the present study was analyse the zooplankton assemblages in different water bodies located in coastal zones, middle valleys and mountain zones between 37-39° S. For this purpose, the following variables were considered: maximum depth, latitude, alt… Show more

“…chilensis. Similar results were observed for other glacial, oligotrophic lakes in Torres del Paine National Park, such as Nordsdenkjold and Grey, where the Zooplankton communities consist of only two species {B. michaelseni and Tropocyclops prasinus (Fischer, I860)) (Soto et al, 1994;Soto & De los Ríos, 2006;De los Ríos-Escalante, 2010;De los Ríos-Escalante et al, 2011). This situation differs from that of another Patagonian lake with glacial influence.…”

“…In central and south Chilean Patagonia (46-51°S) there are numerous deep, oligotrophic lakes of glacial origin and/or with glaciers associated with their basins (Soto & Zúñiga, 1991;Soto et al, 1994;De los Ríos-Escalante, 2011), which contain Zooplankton communities with a low number of species and high calanoid dominance (Soto & Zúñiga, 1991;De los Ríos & Soto, 2006, 2007 De los Ríos-Escalante, 2010). This region is practically unpolluted and has been little studied due mainly to geographical difficulties -mountains, ice fields and fiords -and the weather, characterized by strong winds, especially in the southem spring and summer (October-February) (Soto et al, 1994;De los Ríos-Escalante, 2010).…”

“…The aim of the present study is to compare data obtained from the literature of chlorophyll-a concentration and crustacean zooplankton populations in North Patagonian mountain lakes and Bulgarian mountain lakes, considering the geographical and ecological differences between the two regions. Data about the trophic status and zooplanktonic crustacean and littoral species from Chilean mountain lakes were obtained from the literature (n = 8; Steinhart et al, 2002;De los Ríos-Escalante et al, 2011) and from field-work in Alerce Andino National Park. The data from Bulgaria (n = 9) were taken from the literature Hristozova et al, 2004).…”

“…Although some information is known concerning some aspects of the biology of B. poopoensis in natural conditions, including its important morphometric plasticity (De los Ríos- Escalante et al 2011), information on B. poopoensis in general is scarce. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to analyze the population characteristics (density, biomass and size range), particularly of ovigerous females, including their size range, and the number and size of eggs, in four hypo-mesosaline (Hammer 1986) shallow lakes of the province of La Pampa (Argentina), and to establish relationships with the principal environmental parameters.…”
