Classification of Freshwater Ecosystems

Fresh water ecosystems depend on the terrestrial ecosystems for large quantities of organic and inorganic matter which are constantly added into them by the communities growing on nearby land. The fresh water ecosystems can be conveniently divided into two main divisions

  • Lentic (from 'lenis', calm) or standing or basin series ecosystems. Examples of this division are lakes, pools, ponds, swamps, marshes etc.
  • Lotic (from 'lotus', washed), or running or channel series ecosystems. Examples of this division are rivers, streams, springs etc.
