Growth of the rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus pallas in dairy waste stabilization ponds
Water Research Oxford 29(10): 2255-2260
The phytoplankton and zooplankton populations of a series of temperate region waste stabilization ponds treating dairy effluent were studied over a period of 17 months. The system was organically overloaded. The phytoplankton consisted almost entirely of small, round to oval Chlorococcales (dominated, most probably, by one or more species of Chlorella), with densities of up to ca. 8 million cells per ml.
