Benthic macro-invertebrates of Nta-Wogba River, Port Harcourt


Benthic macro-invertebrates of Nta-Wogba River, Port Harcourt



Global Journal of Pure and Applied Sciences 12(4): 439-442



An ecological study of benthic macroinvertebrates of the Nta-Wogba stream, Port Harcourt, Nigeria, was undertaken monthly for 12 months (July 2002 to June 2003) to assess the composition, seasonal abundance, and distribution of the benthic fauna. The diversity of the benthos was poor; only 14 taxa were recorded. The fauna was dominated by annelids and arthropods (Oligochaeta and Insecta) which, in terms of abundance, constitute 42.7 and 32.7%, respectively.
