How do zooplankton respond to coastal wetland restoration? the case of newly created salt marsh lagoons in La Pletera (NE Catalonia)

Cabrera et al. (2019) – Limnetica 38(2): 721-741.

We analysed the changes in the zooplankton composition in several new and old lagoons in La Pletera salt marshes subjected to a restoration project. we did not find significant differences in the zooplankton community between the old and new lagoons. The seasonal variation in the zooplankton communities was strongly affected by the seasonal hydrological flooding – confinement pattern, which did not differ between the old and new lagoons.
