San Miguel del Monte is a small, shallow and eutrophic pond. The investigation was beginning during a turbid water period, until its replacement by a clear water period, due to the total basin colonization by Potamogenton pectinatus. Rotifers were dominant in all the vertical profile in summer. Protozoans were only abundant with oxygen depletion condition nearly the sediments in winter. Planktonic cladocerans appeared during maximum macrophytes growth in summer, in the middle of the profile. Copepods were present all year with minimum densities at surficial levels. The zooplankton peak occurred in late summer at the upper middle of the profile.
