Description
Densities of observed species of water and soil in burrows of red swamp crawfish (Procambarus clarki) and in adjacent ponds or ditch during the burrowing period sampled in February 1962 all situated at The Ben Hur Farm near the Mississippi River. The data were digitized by VLIZ from the original report: Jaspers, E. (1969). Environmental conditions in burrows and ponds of the red swamp crawfish, Procambarus clarki (Girard), near Baton Rouge, Louisiana. MSc Thesis. Louisiana State University: Baton Rouge. 47 pp. more

Fauna present in burrow water consisted mainly of planktonic Crustaceans. In general, the animal groups in burrows were similar to those present in the adjacent pond or ditch but fewer species and numbers occurred in the burrows. The benthic fauna in the burrows were dominated by Oligochaetes whereas aquatic insect larvae, mainly Diptera dominated in the ponds and ditch.
