Banu Ertosun , Ahmet Altindag and Seyhan Ahiska
Abstract: Trophic status of Ucpinar Dam Lake (Usak), some parameters of water quality, phytoplankton and zooplankton (which are in this pond) are the first and the second food chain also benthic samples seasonally were studied quantitatively and qualitatively during June 2005 to April 2006. From 10 genera (phytoplankton) determined; 5 genera belong to Cyanophyta, 3 to Chlorophyta, 1 to Euglenophyta and 1 to Bacillaropyhta. From 30 species identified (zooplankton), 26 species are from Rotifera, 2 species from Cladocera, 2 species from Copepoda. A total of 3 families from zoobenthic were determined. Average water quality parameters of Ucpinar Pond were measured as follows; water temperature was 15,1°C, pH 7.84, dissolved oxygen 7.87 mg L-1, Secchidisc depth 32.16 cm and electrical conductivity 754.08 μS cm-1. As a result, the obtained physical, chemical and biological parameter as well as the dominant zooplankton and phytoplankton species shows that Ucpinar Dam Lake is eutrophic.
