Seasonal Variation of Rotifera Fauna of Cip Dam Lake (Elazig-Turkey)

Serap Saler and Dursun Sen

In this study, rotifera species and their seasonal variation were investigated together with physical and chemical parameters between April 1994 - March 1995 in Cip Dam Lake. Fifteen rotifera species belonging to 12 genera were recorded. The number of rotifers were decreased in winter months, whereas increased in summer and spring months. The relationship between number of rotifers and some physical and chemical parameters were determined statistically. The correlation between rotifer individual numbers, water temperature and total hardness were statistically significant while it was found un important with respect to Sechii depth, pH, dissolved oxygen and salinity. In conclusion, Cip Dam Lake was found to be a suitable habitat for rotifers.
