Zooplankton Assemblages in Southern Chilean Ponds: Potential Role of Trophic Status and Natural Ultraviolet Radiation Exposure pp. 139-150 $100.00

Abstract:
The zooplankton assemblages in Chilean water bodies is characterized by their low species number and high calanoid dominance, that is due mainly to the oligotrophy of studied sites. Nevertheless, it was reported an increase of penetration of natural ultraviolet radiation, that is due to the ozone depletion. In this scenario, the natural ultraviolet radiation can penetrate into water column that generates damage into biotic components. The present study included two groups of shallow ponds, a first group included oligotrophic mountain shallow ponds in Araucania region (38º S), whereas a second group included shallow ponds located plains of Magallanes region (51º S). The studied revealed that both groups of sites have high exposure to natural ultraviolet radiation. The first group, the trophic status would be the main regulator factor of zooplankton assemblages, whereas in the second group, the conductivity would have a secondary role, because at low conductivity and mesotrophic status would have high species number and low calanoid dominance. Similar results were reported for their counterparts located in Argentinean Patagonia.
