Fish as vectors in the dispersal of Bythotrephes cederstroemi: Diapausing eggs survive passage through the gut
Summary 1 Bythotrephes cederstroemi (Crustacea: Onychopoda: Cercopagidae) is an introduced invertebrate predator currently spreading through the Laurentian Great Lakes region of North America. WeExpand

Competition Among Cladocerans: Nature of the Interaction Between Bosmina and Daphnia
Because phytoplankton succession involves pulses of short duration and a degree of unpredictability, most workers have argued against resource specialization by zooplankters. Yet, in Lake Mitchell,Expand

Combat between predatory copepods and their prey: Cyclops, Epischura, and Bosmina 1
Predatory copepods are not imprecise hunters: they are capable of sophisticated behavior. Pelagic species (Cyclops, Epischura) usually sense approaching prey from a distance and must judge approachExpand

A new approach to historical reconstruction: Combining descriptive and experimental paleolimnology
Here we introduce a combined experimental and descriptive approach (termed resurrection ecology) to reconstructing historical perturbations, pointing out how direct tests with sediments and hatchedExpand

The Divergence of Adjacent Populations
In Union Bay, a temperate embayment in Seattle, Washington, USA two different kinds of predators maintain a polymorphism of the cladoceran Bosmina longirostris. The boundary separating these twoExpand

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

Experimental paleoecology (resurrection ecology): Chasing Van Valen's Red Queen hypothesis
Taking an experimental approach to paleoecology, we evaluated the prey portion of Van Valen’s Red Queen hypothesis by retrieving diapausing eggs from lake sediments for laboratory tests ofExpand

Temperature, recreational fishing and diapause egg connections: dispersal of spiny water fleas (Bythotrephes longimanus)
The spiny water flea (Bythotrephes longimanus) is spreading from Great Lakes coastal waters into northern inland lakes within a northern temperature-defined latitudinal band. Colonization of GreatExpand
