Article
The effects of exposure to mining tailings on water quality and biota of tropical lacustrine ecosystems remain poorly understood. We tested the hypothesis that after mining tailing spills, shallow lakes should retain higher metal concentrations in comparison with deep lakes, which might contribute to differentiating species sorting and community st...

In the last five years, two colossal environmental disasters involving iron-enriched mine tailings have occurred in Brazil, affecting many aquatic ecosystems over the short, medium and long-terms. This study investigated whether these iron-enriched mine tailings affect the main biotic strategy to restore zooplankton populations affected by severe s...

Cladocerans are a diverse group of species that show rapid responses to changes in environmental conditions. This adaptive capacity has important implications for egg production and life cycle, especially in transitory environments such as temporary waterbodies. The present study investigated the life history and egg production of Alona gutatta Sar...
Article
In recent decades, riparian vegetation has been removed from important ecosystems around the world, in spite of its high ecological importance for aquatic biota. Nevertheless, the effects of catchment land use on zooplank-ton have been little studied. The present study investigated if replanting riparian vegetation in a tropical reservoir influence...

Interaction between Epistylis sp. and copepods was investigated in 3 tropical lakes. Epibiont load was higher in Thermocyclops minutus compared to Notodiaptomus ssp. at light compensation depth. No difference was found at surface. Infestation of Epistylis sp. seems to respond to copepod species densities. Attaching to more abundant copepods may inc...

In Brazil, although, high-altitude shallow lakes comprise large parts of conservation units and are considered highly important environments for biodiversity studies, little is known about the factors that regulate the zooplankton community. In the present study, we sought to identify the effect of regional (hydroperiod and altitude) and local (lak...
