This site provides general information about zooplankton, a complex assemblage of microscopic animals in the water column of lakes, ponds, rivers, estuaries and the open ocean. The main focus of this site is on the zooplankton of lakes and ponds, and includes .

      The intense study of these subjects during the s and s has given biologists and ecologists an increased awareness of when and where to expect chaos and complex dynamics. Research in the early s has focused less on the identification of these patterns in real data and experiments and more on the reasons why natural systems seem to. In an aquatic ecosystem zooplankton form an important link in the food chain from primary to tertiary level leading to the production of fishery. It has been well established that potentials of pelagic fishes viz. finfishes, crustaceans, mollusks and marine mammals either directly or indirectly depend on zooplankton.

    Zooplankton’s primary sources of food include bacterioplankton, phytoplankton, marine snow (detritus) and other zooplankton. Zooplankton are usually found on the surface of the ocean and freshwater bodies, where these sources of food abound. Zooplankton, along with phytoplankton, form the base of most marine and freshwater food webs. Zooplankton are small animals that are suspended in water and either drift with the currents or swim weakly. A very broad range of animals live their entire lives in the plankton and are referred to as holoplankton. These "underknown" species may be very important in the trophic ecology of the ecosystem, and focused research is beginning to.

The holoplanktonic species spend their entire lives in the pelagic environment; meroplanktonic forms are temporary members of the plankton, and include the eggs and larval stages of many benthic invertebrates and fish.

It is more than 40 years since ICES convened the first “Symposium on Zooplankton Production” at Charlottenlund, Denmark, in At that time the traditional approach to the study of plankton was based on individual scientists working in relative isolation (Reeve et al., ).ICES also had a lead role in the organization of the Second Symposium on Zooplankton Production, Plymouth, Cited by: Because of this link, zooplankton may be important from an economic perspective as well as from an ecological perspective.

In ecology, there has been much emphasis on the flow of energy and the cycling of matter in ecosystems. The concept of trophic levels has allowed simplified quantitative descriptions of complex ecological systems.

The word plankton was first of coined by Henson, which means that which drifts. A single organism in the plankton is known as a plankter.

The wide distribution of many plankton species is one of the most striking features encountered in the study of planktonology.

Some articles in the book clearly reveal the fact that the plankton is regarded as a best biotool. Ecological Complexity is an international journal devoted to the publication of high quality, peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of biocomplexity in the environment, theoretical ecology, and special issues on topics of current scope of the journal is wide and interdisciplinary with an integrated and quantitative approach.

The journal particularly encourages submission of papers. In the present study, metabarcoding of mitochondrial COI bp region of mtDNA was used to characterize the genetic diversity of zooplankton in a eutrophic freshwater ecosystem.

The systematic aggregated eco-province (SAGE) method identifies eco-provinces within a highly nonlinear ecosystem model. To accommodate the non-Gaussian covariance of the data, SAGE uses t-stochastic neighbor embedding.

Ecology (from Greek: οἶκος, "house", or "environment"; -λογία, "study of") is a branch of biology concerning interactions among organisms and their biophysical environment, which includes both biotic and abiotic components.

Topics of interest include the biodiversity, distribution, biomass, and populations of organisms, as well as cooperation and competition within and between species. Fossil plankton are difficult to identify but have formed a major component of most marine ecosystems throughout geological time.

The earliest fossil heterotrophs include planktic forms, and subsequent adaptive innovations quickly appeared in the plankton; these include metazoans and animals with hard parts.

Movement into the plankton occurred sporadically throughout geological history and. An ecosystem model is an abstract, usually mathematical, representation of an ecological system (ranging in scale from an individual population, to an ecological community, or even an entire biome), which is studied to better understand the real system.

Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 24) Abstract While the conceptual framework of the zooplankton compartment includes a number of commonly accepted processes, the representation of interactions in the formulation is perhaps the most complex to be found in the model.

The seemingly simple plankton communities are actually intrinsically chaotic systems, characterized by dazzling complexity when viewed in detail. I have used both theoretical and empirical modeling approaches to understand how plankton dynamics determine community structure and affect the fluxes of energy and nutrients through the ecosystem.

An ecosystem model is an abstract, usually mathematical, representation of an ecological system (ranging in scale from an individual population, to an ecological community, or even an entire biome), which is studied to gain understanding of the real system.

Ecosystem models are formed by combining known ecological relations (e.g. the relation of sunlight and water availability to. Although there are increasing paleoecological studies examining the effects of land use change on lake ecosystems, fewer studies address these complex interactions from a social-ecological.

determine the health of an ecosystem (Purushothama et al., ). From the earlier work on the zooplanktons, it appears that studies have been done on the seasonal variation and zooplankton diversity in river but negligible work has been carried out on composition and seasonal variation in zooplankton in Bhima River near Ramwadi village.

Ecological models of insect diseases began with a simple model by Anderson and May (), which started with a model for human epidemics and added population dynamics of insects and pathogens.

Anderson and May used the model to make the general point that pathogens may drive the dynamics of forest insects capable of significant outbreaks such. Ecosystem dynamics is the study of the changes in ecosystem structure caused by environmental disturbances or by internal forces.

Various research methodologies measure ecosystem dynamics. Some ecologists study ecosystems using controlled experimental systems, while some study entire ecosystems in their natural state; others use both approaches.INTRODUCTION.

Zooplankton are considered as one of the most important food source to the aquatic organisms particularly to planktivorous fish. Zooplankton community is the major route for energy flux in the plankton based food web causes them to become an important element in functioning of aquatic ecosystems (Santos-Wisniewski et al.
