Rotifer occurrence in relation to water temperature in Loch Leven, Scotland
May, L.. 1983 Rotifer occurrence in relation to water temperature in Loch Leven, Scotland. Hydrobiologia, 104 (1). 311-315. 10.1007/BF00045983Full text not available from this repository.
Many rotifer species in Loch Leven show a distinct seasonality in occurrence. This appears to be primarily an effect of temperature. While some species seem to be eurythermal, other species show a well-defined range of temperature preference, outside which they are unable to maintain populations. Within this range, there is a close correlation between food availability and rotifer abundance.
