Dispersal and emerging ecological impacts of Ponto-Caspian species in the Laurentian Great Lakes.
We describe, explain, and "predict" dispersal and ecosystem impacts of six Ponto-Caspian endemic species that recently invaded the Great Lakes via ballast water. The zebra mussel, DreissenaExpand

Zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) selective filtration promoted toxic Microcystis blooms in Saginaw Bay (Lake Huron) and Lake Erie
Microcystis aeruginosa, a planktonic colonial cyanobacterium, was not abundant in the 2-year period before ze- bra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha) establishment in Saginaw Bay (Lake Huron) but becameExpand

Recent Changes in Primary Production and Phytoplankton in the Offshore Region of Southeastern Lake Michigan☆
ABSTRACT Phytoplankton abundance, composition, and productivity were monitored on a bi-weekly basis from March/ April through November/December at two offshore stations in southeastern Lake MichiganExpand

Dynamics of the Lake Michigan food web, 1970-2000
Herein, we document changes in the Lake Michigan food web between 1970 and 2000 and identify the fac- tors responsible for these changes. Control of sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) and alewifeExpand

Dreissena and the Disappearance of the Spring Phytoplankton Bloom in Lake Michigan
ABSTRACT We determined the clearance rates of the profunda morph of the quagga mussel (Dreissena bugensis) using seston and Cryptomonas ozolini, a high-quality algal food, for the temperature rangeExpand

Long-Term and Recent Changes in Southern Lake Michigan Water Quality with Implications for Present Trophic Status
ABSTRACT Southern Lake Michigan has changed in response to alterations in nutrients and invasive species. NOAA and EPA monitoring results are used to examine those changes. NOAA provides detailedExpand

Seasonal zooplankton dynamics in Lake Michigan: Disentangling impacts of resource limitation, ecosystem engineering, and predation during a critical ecosystem transition
Abstract We examined seasonal dynamics of zooplankton at an offshore station in Lake Michigan from 1994 to 2003 and 2007 to 2008. This period saw variable weather, declines in planktivorous fishExpand

A model study of the coupled biological and physical dynamics in Lake Michigan
A coupled physical and biological model was developed for Lake Michigan. The physical model was the Princeton ocean model (POM) driven directly by observed winds and net surface heat flux. TheExpand

Approaching Storm: Disappearing Winter Bloom in Lake Michigan
ABSTRACT Between 1990 and 2001, late-winter phytoplankton blooms were common in parts of the lower Great Lakes (southern Lake Michigan, Saginaw Bay and southern Lake Huron, and western Lake Erie),Expand
