Abstract

We characterized the Rotifera community in Yenicaga Lake, Turkey between October 1997 and August 1999. Totally, twenty-two rotifer species were found, and their relative dominance showed significant seasonal variations. The most frequently occurring species were Keratella quadrata, Filinia longiseta, Brachionus urceolaris, and Asplanchna priodonta.
