Can filter‐feeding Asian carp invade the Laurentian Great Lakes? A bioenergetic modelling exercise
Summary 1. There is much concern that filter-feeding Asian carp will invade the Laurentian Great Lakes and deplete crucial plankton resources. We developed bioenergetic models, using parameters fromExpand

Damaging UV radiation and invertebrate predation: conflicting selective pressures for zooplankton vertical distribution in the water column of low DOC lakes
In nature most organisms have to manage conflicting demands of food gathering, predator avoidance, and finding a favorable abiotic environment (oxygen, temperature, etc.) in order to maximize theirExpand

How do UV radiation, temperature, and zooplankton influence the dynamics of alpine phytoplankton communities?
Plankton in mountain lakes are confronted with generally higher levels of incident ultraviolet radiation (UVR), lower temperatures, and shorter growing seasons than their lower elevationExpand

Feeding at different plankton densities alters invasive bighead carp (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis) growth and zooplankton species composition
Invasive Asian carps Hypophthalmichthys spp. are an ecological threat to non-native aquatic ecosystems throughout the world, and are poised to enter the Laurentian Great Lakes. Little is known aboutExpand

Anticipating the spread and ecological effects of invasive bigheaded carps (Hypophthalmichthys spp.) in North America: a review of modeling and other predictive studies
Bighead carp (Hypophthalmichthys nobilis Valenciennes 1844) and silver carp (H. molitrix Richardson 1845), collectively called bigheaded carps, have invaded the Mississippi River Basin and may haveExpand

How do temperature, dissolved organic matter and nutrients influence the response of Leptodiaptomus ashlandi to UV radiation in a subalpine lake?
SUMMARY 1. Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is an important stressor for zooplankton in alpine lake ecosystems. Multiple environmental variables such as dissolved organic matter (DOM), temperature andExpand

Effects of temperature and ultraviolet radiation on diel vertical migration of freshwater crustacean zooplankton
In transparent, thermally stratified lakes, ultraviolet radiation (UV) and temperature are among the primary factors influencing diel vertical migration (DVM) of zooplankton. It is not well known howExpand

Effects of urbanization on the population structure of freshwater turtles across the United States
Landscape-scale alterations that accompany urbanization may negatively affect the population structure of wildlife species such as freshwater turtles. Changes to nesting sites and higher mortalityExpand

Beneficial and detrimental interactive effects of dissolved organic matter and ultraviolet radiation on Zooplankton in a transparent lake
While changes in dissolved organic matter (DOM) concentrations are expected to affect zooplankton species through attenuation of potentially damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation, generation ofExpand

Environmental framing on Twitter: Impact of Trump’s Paris Agreement withdrawal on climate change and ocean acidification dialogue
Abstract The role of social media in communicating emerging environmental issues has received little attention. One such issue is ocean acidification (OA), the process by which carbon dioxide (CO2)Expand
