  • SummarySalinity increased from 48 to 93 g/l total dissolved solids (TDS) in Mono Lake, California between 1941 and 1982, and is expected to fluctuate between 169 and 248 g/l at equilibrium by the middle of the next century. In order to predict the consequences of this trend on the Mono Lake ecosystem, we determined effects of salinity on survival, growth, reproduction and hatching ofArtemia monica, Mono Lake's only macrozooplankton species. Seven salainities ranging from 76 to 179 g/l were… CONTINUE READING
