Description

Title:The Plankton of Some Sink Hole Ponds in Southern Illinois
Subject(s):Plankton
Sink Hole
Southern Illinois
Abstract:Sink holes are abundant in various parts of Illinois, especially in the extreme southern portion of the state. Their circular or oval tunnels are common in areas underlain with limestone. A study of the plankton of such ponds is of interest because of the additional information thus obtained regarding pond organisms and because of the possibilities of their relation to cave fauna. Also. as the ponds maybe the sources of the large springs for which these regions are noted and often popular. the contents of their waters are important as possible sources of pollution.
