|Title:||The Tintinnids (Protozoa:Ciliata of the Bahuda estuary, east coast of India|
Panigrahy, R C
|Abstract:||Seasonal variations in species composition and population density of Tintinnids (Protozoa: Ciliata) in Bahuda estuary, a shallow tidal estuary situated on the south Orissa coast, are described in this communication. A total of 23 species, belonging to 12 genera, were encountered. Consipicuous seasonal variation was noticed both in species composition as well as population density of Tintinnids in this estuary. Tintinopsis and Favella have emerged as the dominant genera represented by 12 and 2 species respectively. Population density ranged from 650-1,6500 organisms m-3. Maximal and minimal density values were noticed in Feb. 1991 and Sept. 1991 respectively. Annual cycle showed a unimodel oscillation. Salinity was found as the key factor controlling the qualitative and quantitative distribution of Tintinnids.|
