Synecology of the Rotifera of the River Murray, South Australia
Australian Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research
30(2) 255 - 263
Ecological data are presented on the planktonic Rotifera of the lower tract of the River Murray in South Australia. Thirty-five species are recorded. These are predominantly cosmopolitan limno- plankters; their synecology in the Murray, and that of the zooplankton per se reflects the variability of habitat conditions in a river that is alkaline (pH 7.5-8.7), turbid (10-225 nephelometric turbidity units) and moderately saline (0.2-1.0 g/l).
