Zooplankton characteristics in monitoring of Lake Ladoga



Zooplankton characteristics in monitoring of Lake Ladoga



Hydrobiologia 322(1-3): 173-179



The potential of limnetic zooplankton as a bioindicator in large lake ecosystem monitoring is illustrated with reference to Lake Ladoga. Patterns of change in the very long record of pelagic summer zooplankton in Lake Ladoga, spanning the years 1948-1993, are presented. This data is complemented with records of near-shore zooplankton communities from the past decade, the changes of which are discussed with special reference to two contrasting littoral areas: the southern bays, and the northern archipelago. In the pelagic zone the zooplankton community shows great stability throughout the entire monitoring period. According to zooplankton, the trophic state of the pelagial region may be classified as oligo-mesotrophic, with only a slight trend of eutrophication evident in the uppermost water layers. In the littoral zones more prominent eutrophication is indicated.
