Investigations performed in the last decade indicate that there have been important changes in the zooplankton composition and structure in the Black Sea. However, contrasting events taking place in different regions of the Black Sea indicate a non-uniform structure of its ecosystem.


The Black Sea zooplankton: Composition, spatial/temporal distribution and history of investigations
Kovalev, A V; Skryabın, V A; Zagorodnyaya, Yu A; Bingel, Ferit; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan; Nıermann, U; Uysal, Zahit (1999-01-01)
Investigations into the composition, spatial and temporal distribution of the Black Sea zooplankton were reviewed in context with its historical development. The review comprises the main zooplankton studies published by the riparian countries of the Black Sea beginning with the earliest faunistic publications in the 1860s and 1870s up to the recent multinational ecosystem investigations carried out within the framework of the NATO-TU-Black Sea Project. The reviewed material covers a wide subject range of z...
Seasonal Changes in the Composition and Abundance ofZooplankton in the Seas of the Mediterranean Basin
Kovalev, Av; Mazzocchı, Mg; Toklu Alıçlı, Benin; Skryabın, Va; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan (2003-01-01)
Seasonal changes in the composition, abundance and biomass of zooplankton in the seas of the Mediterranean basin (the Mediterranean, Black and Azov seas) have been reviewed using our own data and data from the literature. In the deep-water central regions of the seas, the seasonal cycle of zooplankton abundance is characterised by one maximum occurring in spring or summer. In the coastal regions, two to three peaks (spring, summer and autumn) exist for the zooplankton abundance. The amplitude of seasonal fl...
Trace metal composition of particulate matter of the Danube River and Turkish rivers draining into the Black Sea
Yigiterhan, Oguz; Murray, James W. (2008-08-16)
We determined the composition of particles from several rivers entering the Black Sea as part of a broader study of the composition of suspended matter and sediments in the Black Sea. Suspended matter and surface sediment samples were collected from the Danube River draining from Europe and from four Turkish rivers (Sakarya, Yenice (Filyos), Kizilirmak and Yesilirmak Rivers) in Anatolia. All samples were digested and analyzed by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry and atomic absorption spectrometry...
Zooplankton of the Black Sea and the Eastern Mediterranean Similarities and dissimilarities
Kovalev, Av; Mazzocchı, Mg; Sıokoufrangou, I.; Kıdeyş, Ahmet Erkan (2001-01-01)
A synthesis of data on abundance and biomass of zooplankton in the Eastern Mediterranean (EMED) and the Black Sea shows major differences in the composition and structure of pelagic communities in the two basins. Few Mediterranean planktonic animals have invaded in the Black Sea. The great bulk of Black Sea species is represented by coastal inhabitants that spread throughout the whole basin. This process has been called “neritization” of the Black Sea fauna. Peculiarities in zooplankton assemblages of the B...

Black Sea and Eastern Mediterranean (Levantine basin) have gone through a number of documented changes in the recent decades. Recently acquired satellite data document rapid warming, increased sea level and decreased chlorophyll-a (phytoplankton) in the Black Sea and Levantine basin. Aim of this study is to address warming in the Black Sea and Levantine basin, as well as to investigate the phytoplankton response to changing environmental conditions at seasonal to interannual timescales. In the first part of...
