We examined crustacean zooplankton data (excluding nauplii) from 15 shallow lakes in south and central Florida, spanning a range of sizes and Chlorophyll-a concentrations. Each dataset was comprised of monthly samples from 2 years (6 lakes), or monthly to quarterly samples from 10 or 12 years (9 lakes). We quantified relationships between the zooplankton to(More)
We demonstrate a major ecological change in a large lake ecosystem in response to a series of extreme weather events. Phytoplankton community dynamics in subtropical Lake Okeechobee are described from 2000 through early 2008 with emphasis on inter-relationships among phytoplankton populations and associated environmental variables in this large, shallow(More)
Cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) are small brain hemorrhages caused by the break down or structural abnormalities of small vessels of the brain. Owing to the paramagnetic properties of blood degradation products, CMBs can be detected in vivo using susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI). SWI can be used not only to detect iron changes and CMBs, but also to(More)
The mid-summer disappearance of Daphnia and the small size of cladocerans in subtropical lakes have been explained as phenomena caused by high water temperature. Recent experimental and observational studies suggest that instead, fish predation could be the cause. In the present study, we evaluated effects of temperature and fish predation by comparing(More)
We assessed if the qualitative and quantitative aspects of plankton composition in reservoirs of the middle Missouri River were influenced by hydrologic variability. Phytoplankton and zooplankton communities in six reservoirs of this highly regulated system were sampled between 2004 and 2011 during historic drought, subsequent recovery, and a 100-year flood(More)
The earliest stages of osteoarthritis are characterized by peripheral pathology; however, during disease progression chronic pain emerges-a major symptom of osteoarthritis linked to neuroplasticity. Recent clinical imaging studies involving chronic pain patients, including osteoarthritis patients, have demonstrated that functional properties of the brain(More)
Shallow lakes, particularly those in low-lying areas of the subtropics, are highly vulnerable to changes in climate associated with global warming. Many of these lakes are in tropical cyclone strike zones and they experience high inter-seasonal and inter-annual variation in rainfall and runoff. Both of those factors strongly modulate sediment–water column(More)
