Restoration of the food web of an alpine lake following fish stocking
The zooplankton community of Snowflake Lake, Banff National Park, from 1966 to 1995 was studied, finding that H. arcticus was eliminated following stocking of the lake with trout in the 1960s, and it failed to become reestablished after the disappearance of the fish population in the mid-1980s.
Crustacean Plankton Communities of 340 Lakes and Ponds in and near the National Parks of the Canadian Rocky Mountains
The crustacean plankton communities of 340 lakes and ponds in southern Alberta and southeastern British Columbia were examined and the most frequently occurring and abundant species tolerate a wide range of conditions.
Recovery of zooplankton assemblages in mountain lakes from the effects of introduced sport fish
Impacts of introduced fish on zooplankton assemblages of lakes may persist for decades following fish removal. We tested this hypothesis by comparing zooplankton assemblages from four categories of...

The failure of the clams to respond to standard ROI-eliciting procedures is possibly indicative of interspecies differences in hemocyte-mediated antimicrobial defense mechanisms.
The Effects of Stocking and Removal of a Nonnative Salmonid on the Plankton of an Alpine Lake
Gill netting is a viable fish eradication technique for smaller (less than 10 ha), shallow ( less than 10 m deep) lakes that lack habitable inflows and outflows or other sensitive species and further work is required to define appropriate removal methods for larger lakes and watersheds.
Crustacean Plankton of 146 Alpine and Subalpine Lakes and Ponds in Western Canada
Investigations of crustacean plankton communities in 146 alpine and subalpine waters in some western Canadian national parks and environs showed that species composition varied little from year to
Weevils (Coleoptera: Curculionoidea, Excluding Scolytinae and Platypodinae) of the Yukon
Four distinct assemblages are distinguished in the curculionoid fauna: widespread: an assemblage consisting of 47 widespread species found in boreal and/or boreomontane forest, wetlands, or a variety of habitats and generally characteristic of northern transcontinental North America (and for some species also Eurasia).
Review of selenite cataract.
The selenite cataract is discussed as a useful model for understanding the role calcium-induced proteolysis in cataracts formation and permanently or temporarily reducing the rate formation by use of various inhibitors.
