Assessing the Role of Declining Calcium in Biological Recovery on Zooplankton in Historically Acidified Lakes
Throughout much of the 20th century, industrial emissions caused the widespread acidification of thousands of lakes in North America and Europe. Acidification has led to unprecedented damage on zooplankton communities, ...
Intraspecific Behavioural Diversity in a Freshwater Zooplankton: A study of the fitness consequences of vertical migration behaviour for distinct morphs of Daphnia pulicaria
The literature on niche separation and coexistence between species is large, but there is widespread variation in behavioural strategy between individuals of the same species that has received much less attention. Understanding ...
Assessing Biological Recovery of Cladocera from Sudbury-Area Lakes Using Paleolimnology
Lakes near Sudbury, Ontario, experienced widespread acidification and metal-contamination beginning in the late-19th century. These stressors caused extreme damage to regional aquatic systems and their catchments, with ...
Windows of opportunity: the timing of dispersal events influences zooplankton community response to environmental change in Subarctic ponds
Theoretical and empirical work has shown that community diversity and composition can be influenced by both local conditions and dispersal from a regional species pool. This may be especially true shortly after environmental ...
