Larger species, e.g. Asplanchna priodonta and Conochilus unicornis, and grasping species, e.g. Gastropus stylifer and Ascomorpha spp., became more abundant, while smaller filter feeders, e.g. Keratella cochlearis, decreased after an experimental reduction of the fish population. This development is probably caused by changes in basic regulating factors. The change to invertebrate predator dominance may affect smaller species (e.g. Keratella cochlearis) more than others, the increase of net…

The effect of fish on planktonic rotifers
The dynamics, community structure, and productivity of planktonic rotifers were studied during 3 years in two lakes near St. Petersburg (Russia). One lake was repeatedly stocked with larvae of the
Interactions between pelagic metazoan and protozoan zooplankton, an experimental study
TLDR
Results imply that competition and predation from metazoans may be important factors for the regulation of population size of protozoans in the zooplankton community and may, furthermore, be important selective forces in the evolution of mechanisms for partitioning resources and habitats.
Evolution quantitative à long terme des rotifères au cours de l'eutrophisation du Lac Léman
TLDR
The new equilibrium in the trophic state of Lake Geneva related with the decreasing inputs of nutrients, induces a new structure and less abundance of the total pelagic rotatorian community.
Rotifer populations in plankton communities: Energetics and life history strategies
TLDR
Different life history strategies have developed in rotifers that may be characterized by the rmax/Ks-model presented, which exhibits high maximum growth rates and short times for their population development at the cost of higher food concentrations.
Species composition and quantitative dynamics of rotifers in a pumped storage,eutrophic reservoir in South China
TLDR
Secchi disk depth,temperature, total phytoplankton biomass and Cyanophyta biomass were the main factors affecting the species composition and quantitative dynamics of the rotifer community.
IMPACTO DA PREDAÇÃO POR PEIXES E COPÉPODES NA COMUNIDADE ZOOPLANCTÔNICA DO RESERVATÓRIO DO MARANHÃO (PORTUGAL)
TLDR
Cladocerans and copepods were both selectively predated in relation of bigger size and the presence of eggs, which means that females are big enough to be always seen and only the bigger males were eaten.
Response of the aquatic invertebrate community to the eradication of an exotic invasive fish 30 years after its introduction into an Iberian alpine lake
TLDR
Zooplankters were significantly smaller, on average, before fish eradication rather than later, indicating that the community responded to the change in predation pressure.
Pelagic rotifers of Lake Glubokoe from 1897 to 1984
TLDR
The establishment of the new species of rotifers was possible due to some ‘rarefaction’ of the epilimnion, the disappearance of predaceous Mesocyclops leuckarti and the invasion of the pelagic zone by Peridinium cinctum.
Microhabitat–zooplankton relationship in extensive macrophyte vegetations of eutrophic clear-water ponds
TLDR
The objective of this study was to detect patterns in the zooplankton assemblages associated with different extensive habitats of macrophyte species and to relate these patterns to three major factors: the microhabitat, the pond identity and the seasonality in the warmer months of the year.
Response of zooplankton to the reduction and elimination of submerged vegetation by grass carp and herbicide in four Florida lakes
TLDR
The overall trend in all lakes was toward increasing numbers of small filter-feeding herbivores, with a shift from copepod andCopepod-cladoceran dominated to rotifer and small cladocerans dominated systems.

Significance of predator influence on composition of Bosmina spp. populations1
TLDR
Comparisons in fish stomachs and net plankton showed a clear preference for the larger species, B. coregoni, and a larger mean size in the stomachs of the smaller species, Bosmina longirostris.
Differential predation by fish on two species of Chaoborus (Diptera, Chaoboridae)
TLDR
Larvae of the two species Chaoborus obscuripes and C. flavicans differ with respect to shape and behaviour, which are significant for a visually dependent predator, and may hence be more susceptible to fish predation.
Predator-prey behavior and its effect on rotifer survival in associations of Mesocyclops edax, Asplanchna girodi, Polyarthra vulgaris, and Keratella cochlearis
TLDR
In experimental communities of these predator and prey species the survival of Polyarthra and Keratella is significantly affected by the species of predator present and by predator-prey interaction between the two predators when both are present.
Effects of Rotenone on Zooplankton Communities and a Study of their Recovery Patterns in Two Mountain Lakes in Alberta
TLDR
All crustacean species except one reached prerotenone abundance in about 3 years, probably the minimum time for recovery in these lakes, and Diaptomus sicilis was the last species to recover to its original numbers.
The Effect of Rotenone on Zooplankton Populations in Freshwater Lakes
TLDR
Biweekly sampling of the open water, shore edge, and marsh area prior to and for 6 months following treatment provided quantitative and qualitative measurements of zooplankton populations, and the rare appearance of large numbers of males and usually early ephippial-egg-bearing female Cladocera were observed.
Effects of planktivorous and benthivorous fish on organisms and water chemistry in eutrophic lakes
The effects of planktivorous and benthivorous fish on benthic fauna, zooplankton, phytoplankton and water chemistry were studied experimentally in two eutrophic Swedish lakes using cylindrical
PHOSPHORUS RELEASE BY DAPHNIA1
TLDR
The flux of "P from fully labeled Duphniu rosea" has been used to produce a multiple regression model relating the rate of phosphorus release to temperature, food cell concentration, food phosphorus content, and animal dry weight, which appears to support other tracer studies in suggesting that experiments of long duration substantially underestimate the excretion rates of aquatic animals.
Reduction of Zooplankton Standing Stocks by Predaceous Cyclops bicuspidatus thomasi in Marion Lake, British Columbia
TLDR
The standing stock of the copepod Cyclops bicuspidatus thomasi Forbes in Marion Lake, B.C., was observed during the summers of 1966 and 1967 and the predators ate nauplii in the same quantities as in the laboratory but, contrary to the laboratory results, very few rotifers.
Feeding selectivity of a tropical Chaoborus population
TLDR
Diurnal variation between instars in food composition cannot be explained simply on the basis of the vertical distributions of predators and prey, but an interaction of vertical distribution with prey density and predator selectivity does explain the overall Chaoborus feeding pattern.
Predation, Body Size, and Composition of Plankton.
TLDR
The effect of a marine planktivore on lake plankton illustrates theory of size, competition, and predation.
