Scholarcy highlights

  • The rift lakes Abijata and Shala and the crater lakes Aranguadi, Kilotes and Chitu are soda lakes, while the remaining five lakes and the man-made Lake Koka are within the freshwater range of conductivity
  • The nematode associations varied between lakes and were restricted to very few species in each lake
  • Tobrilus africanus appeared more euryhaline than other nematodes occurring at conductivities as high as 15 000 µ S cm−1
  • A monthly variation in density of nematodes in L
