Since their introduction into North America in the mid1980s, zebra mussels (Dreissena polymorpha) have been implicated in significant ecosystem-level changes, including a shift in energy flow from the pelagic to the benthic zone ( Johengen et al., 1995; Arnott and Vanni, 1996; Lavrentyev et al., 2000), declines in microzooplankton and phytoplankton biomass (Holland, 1993; MacIsaac et al., 1995; Bastviken et al., 1998), and shifts in phytoplankton species composition from communities dominated… CONTINUE READING
