Fish Bioenergetics 4.0: An R-Based Modeling Application
Bioenergetics modeling is a widely used tool in fisheries management and research. Although popular, currently available software (i.e., Fish Bioenergetics 3.0) has not been updated in over 20 yearsExpand

Phenotypic variation and vulnerability to predation in juvenile bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus)
Bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus) are known to diversify into two forms specialized for foraging on either limnetic or littoral prey. Because juvenile bluegills seek vegetative cover in theExpand

Zooplanktivory and Nutrient Regeneration by Invertebrate (Mysis relicta) and Vertebrate (Oncorhynchus nerka) Planktivores: Implications for Trophic Interactions in Oligotrophic Lakes
Abstract We investigated zooplanktivory and nutrient regeneration by the opossum shrimp Mysis relicta and kokanee Oncorhynchus nerka to assess the relative roles of these planktivores in oligotrophicExpand

Interactions between Walleyes and Smallmouth Bass in a Missouri River Reservoir with Consideration of the Influence of Temperature and Prey
Walleyes Sander vitreus are the most popular fish among South Dakota anglers, but smallmouth bass Micropterus dolomieu were introduced to provide new angling opportunities. Some walleye anglers haveExpand

The influence of light, stream gradient, and iron on Didymosphenia geminata bloom development in the Black Hills, South Dakota
The aquatic nuisance species Didymosphenia geminata was first documented in Rapid Creek of South Dakota’s Black Hills during 2002. Since then, blooms have occurred primarily in a 39-km section ofExpand

Temperature-dependent consumption and gut-residence time in the opossum shrimp Mysis relicta
Maximum daily consumption was estimated for Mysis relicta fed ad libitum rations of Daphnia pulex at 4,10,15 and 18°C. Gut-residence time was also evaluated for M.relicta fed clado- ceran prey at 4,Expand

Spatiotemporal patterns of wetland occurrence in the Prairie Pothole Region of eastern South Dakota
We evaluated changes in wetland abundance, size, and classification between average (1979–1986) and above-average (1995–1999) precipitation periods for two physiographic regions in eastern SouthExpand

Invertebrate Composition and Abundance Associated with Didymosphenia geminata in a Montane Stream
ABSTRACT Didymosphenia geminata, a relatively new aquatic nuisance species that can form extensive, mucilaginous mats on stream substrates, was reported from Rapid Creek, South Dakota in 2002. ToExpand
