Büyük Lota Gölü (Hafik/SİVAS)’nün Fitoplankton Toplulukları ve Su Kalitesi

2.253 1.056


Phytoplankton communities of Great Lota Lake and water quality properties of the lake water were examined between January 2001 and December 2001. 78 taxa belong to seven divisions in Phytoplankton. Of these taxa belong to 29 Chloroophyta (37,2 %), 28 Bacillariophyta (35,9 %), 13 Cyanophyta (16,7 %), 3 Pyrrophyta (3,8 %), 3 Cryptophyta (3,8 %), 1 Euglenophyta (1,3 %) and 1 Xanthophyta (1,3 %). The annual means of temperature, dissolved oxygen, pH, total phosphate, nitrate, amonia, silica, calcium, sulphate and chlorophyll are 18.9 oC , 6.5 mg/L, 8.3, 58 µg/L, 0.3 mg/L, 0.1 mg /L, 3. 6 mg/L, 449 mg/L, 269 mg/L and 1.5 µg/L respectively. The Great Lota Lake exhibits oligo-mesotrophic character in terms of the biological and chemical properties. Inland water resources classification criteria (WPCR) according enters the water class I and class II
