Effects of zooplankton on nutrient availability and seston C : N : P stoichiometry in inshore waters of Lake Biwa, Japan

Abstract

Forty-eight-hour experimental manipulations of zooplankton biomass were performed to examine the potential effects of zooplankton on nutrient availability and phytoplankton biomass (as measured by seston concentration) and C : N : P stoichiometry in eutrophic nearshore waters of Lake Biwa, Japan. Increasing zooplankton, both mixed-species communities and… (More)
