Ecology of duckweed ponds used for nutrient recovery from wastewater
The microorganism community that grows under duckweed shelter can play an important role on treatment processes. Therefore, the present study aimed to assess the zooplankton dynamic and microbial community in duckweed ponds (DPs) applied for domestic wastewater treatment under open field conditions. A pilot system comprised of two DPs in series (DP1 and DP2), with 10 m2 each, received ...

Bogorov Counting Chambers
The zooplankton counting chambers are designed to facilitate the counting of large quantities of zooplankton. Made of methacrylate, they have various precision-machined grooves with polished bases that provide the best possible transparency, and facilitate zooplankton counting. The small size of all our chambers makes them suitable for use with a stereoscopic microscope.
