To assess the effect of Microcystis blooms on the crustacean zooplankton community, we conducted a large-scale monthly survey from 2008 to 2010 in Lake Taihu, China. During the sampling period, Microcystis was the dominant genus in the phytoplankton community (79 of total biomass), while the crustacean zooplankton community was dominated by small-sized cladocerans (primarily Bosmina coregoni and Ceriodaphnia cornuta) and copepods. During the study, plankton exhibited significant spatial… Expand
