Paper on aquatic macroinvertebrate assemblages from Lake Nokoué (Benin)
|Geographical coverage||Lake Nokoué, Benin|
|Keywords||tropical lagoon, biodiversity indices; biomonitoring|
Drs Olaniran Hamed Odountan and Zinsou Cosme Koudenoukpo jointly published a paper: « Spatio-temporal variation of environmental variables and aquatic macroinvertebrate assemblages in Lake Nokoué, a RAMSAR site of Benin ». It presents the results of a study that investigated environmental characteristics and macroinvertebrate assemblages of Lake Nokoué (Benin), from 2014 to 2016. It offers insights into the macroinvertebrate dynamics linked to the limnology of a West African lagoon, which could contribute to a better understanding of management and conservation measures.
Both Dr Olaniran Hamed Odountan and Dr Zinsou Cosme benefitted from GTI grants over the last three years.
