The use of bdelloids in reference to rotifer biocoenotic indices as an indicator of the ecological state of small field water bodies: The effect of macrophytes, shading and trophic state of water( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Functional approach for environmental analyses using bdelloids as a group reduces difficult taxonomic identification of certain species. Bdelloids reveal type of response to environmental parameters similar to littoral rotifers and species diversity. High trophic state of water restricts the occurrence of bdelloids and diversity of rotifers. The presence of macrophytes and high habitat heterogeneity, known for the improvement of water quality, increase the occurrence of bdelloids and rotifer diversity. Important ecological role of bdelloids qualifies them for a diagnosis of human-induced transformation in ponds. Abstract: Species identification of many rotifers is very difficult due to e.g. body contraction in the preserved material. In the case of bdelloids, it is even more problematic as they can only be determined when alive. Therefore, a necessity for developing a method of using the class Bdelloidea for environmental analyses arose, so I examined them as a whole group. This is an approach that reduces extensive, time-consuming and particularly difficult taxonomic identification of certain species. The occurrence of bdelloids against various rotifer community indices in a mosaic of habitats of 220 small water bodies in an agricultural landscape was subjected to both abiotic and biotic factors so as to measure the extent of their reaction and the possibility of their usage in the assessment of environmental conditions. Despite their preference for forest ponds, bdelloids were also a very common and abundant element of field aquatic ecosystems. Due to their specific sensitivity bdelloids serve as a valuable ecological indicator which can be used for environmental assessment of habitat quality in small water bodies in the agricultural landscape and also for monitoring appropriate conservation actions for ponds. Bdelloids are typically macrophyte-associated organisms, selectively choosing Phragmites stands, a transitional area between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Their response to the environment was similar to the littoral fraction and rotifer diversity indices, which were found to be in opposition to the eutrophic community associated with the open water area in large-surfaced fish ponds. Moreover, the increase in bdelloids in ponds of low human impact supports their potential for the diagnosis of natural ponds of low transformation level. Their preference towards ponds with an increasing layer of nymphaeids and pleustophytes also supports their role in diagnosing good-quality waters as floating-leaved macrophytes are known to improve water quality. It is recommended that bdelloids as a group can be used for the determination of the level of heterogeneity (connected with macrophyte occurrence) and the level of shade (generated by macrophyte cover) as well as the water quality state of small water bodies
Diversity and zooplankton species associated with certain hydroperiods and fish state in field ponds( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Certain zooplankton species are associated with gradients in hydroperiod and fish predation level. Temporary ponds support various zooplankton communities both of littoral character, and large-bodied taxa representing pelagic community. Mosaic of ponds referring to various water regime (temporary vs. permanent ponds) and fish state (fish-free vs. fish ponds) contribute to a region-scale rise in biodiversity. Abstract: Human-induced impact on the biocoenoses in small water bodies within field landscape, aquatic ecosystems undergoing habitat loss, is not only restricted to trophic increase. Ponds are often used for amateur fish production, mainly carp and crucian carp. In addition, in order to limit the growth of aquatic vegetation alien fish species to native fauna, grass carp, are frequently introduced. Only temporary ponds remain entirely free of such manipulations. Therefore, changes in diversity and the occurrence of specific species can be expected in ponds representing different scenarios of fish predation FP and water regime WR. In order to establish conditions responsible for zooplankton occurrence in field ponds subjected to FP (three categories of ponds: fish-free; low fish stocking; high fish stocking) and WR (two categories of ponds: permanent vs. temporary), material was collected from the open water of six neighbouring ponds, thirteen times in 2009, covering the spring, summer and autumn. A total of 134 zooplankton taxa was recorded with rotifers (94 taxa) prevailing taxonomically over cladocerans (24) and copepods (16). A tendency of certain taxa and species diversity to group along a gradient of WR and FP was observed. Higher species diversity was attributed to fish-free ponds, partly depending on the higher contribution of macrophyte-dominated areas, which are known to support a high variation of organisms. Two groups from among the most frequent species that indicated temporary ponds were: 1/littoral-associated (e.g. Lepadella ovalis, Chydorus sphaericus) in fish-free ponds and 2/large-bodied mainly pelagic (e.g. Eudiaptomus gracilis) in low-fish ponds. Fish ponds that were of permanent character, however, had lower species richness, with a high frequency of typically eutrophic taxa such as Brachionus angularis, Keratella cochlearis f. tecta or Trichocerca pusilla . However, they were also a source of rare species such as Brachionus falcatus, Lecane tenuiseta, Ceriodaphnia dubia that occurred exclusively in these ponds compared to natural fish-free ponds, which were remnants of lost species richness. This in turn increased overall zooplankton richness in the regional aspect. Thus, the co-occurrence of temporary ponds along with fish-production targeted permanent ponds may lead to a rise in zooplankton biodiversity on a local scale. We assume therefore that not only patterns of zooplankton biodiversity but also the occurrence of particular species can be treated as a useful indicator of FP and WR in small water bodies and are crucial for conservation purposes and management of aquatic systems at regional and landscape levels
