Changes in lake thermal structure, which are predicted with future climate warming, may alter predator–prey interactions if foraging rates or the spatial overlap of predators and prey depend on thermal conditions. Small Boreal Shield lakes are particularly responsive to weather-induced changes in thermal structure. They are often fishless, with macroinvertebrate predators regulating crustacean zooplankton communities. We performed a mesocosm experiment to examine how thermal structure… CONTINUE READING
