Abstract
    In the heated affluents of nuclear power plants of the river Loire, rotifers are abundant. Cosmopolitan species are numericallydominant, but a tropical fauna is also present, among which the genus Brachionus, representing 20% of the total species, is best represented. From a comparison between water upstream and downstream of the power plants, it further appears that in downstream warmed-up waters, some species show an important development, but not in colder upstream waters.
