Abstract: 41 species of Cladocera and Copepoda were found in sodic pans situated in the vicinity of the village Fülöpháza between 1978 and 1986. Most of these species are common in Hungarian sodic waters. Moina salina was found here for the first time in Hungary. Usually, few species dominate in the plankton. A clear seasonal succession was observed in zooplankton composition. In cold season one of the two diaptomids, Arctodiaptomus spinosus and A. bacillifer, occurred with Daphnia magna. In warm periods two further species of Cladocera, Diaphanosoma brachyurum and Moina brachiata were dominant in companion with these diaptomids.Keywords:
