Provasoli (1958) has said, ""The ecological arena is populated by the products of the continuous challenge of nature to the potentialities of the organisms."" Protozoa are in close contact with their environment and should have a rapid and sensitive response to changes. Since one of the most striking variables in a lotic environment is the rate of flow, it was decided to see what effect two markedly differing rates had on the species composition of the protozona ""community"".
