The fauna of protozoa and small metazoa was studied in four ponds on Vestereng, Arhus, Denmark during the two year period 2003-2005. Three of the ponds (named A2, B, and C) were small temporary ponds, while the fourth (named Al ) was a permanently waterfilled, former marl pit pond. Each pond was sampled 1-4 times per month during the 24 month period, resulting in a total of 125 100-200 ml samples. Protozoa and small metazoa were identified and scored to abundance levels 1-3. A total of 80 taxa of protozoa and small metazoa was found. The ciliated protozoa (Ciliophora) made up the most important group: 37 specie's, of which Vorticella, Halteria and Strobilidium were the most abundand species. Spirostomum, Loxodes and Stentor were typically found in the temporary ponds at the season of lowest water level. A total of 9 species of cladocerans, cyclopoid copepods and ostracods was found, most of them in pond A 1 and A2. Cyclopoid copepods and ostracods were the dominant organisms in pond C, which generally differed from the other ponds. A marked difference in frequency of ciliates in A 1 and A2 was found, though the two ponds can be connected during part of the year, while the fauna in pond A2 in comparsion with the fauna in pond B was quite similar.
