Littoral invertebrates of Cochran Lake, Michigan were either highly "plant-associ- ated," and found infrequently away from aquatic macrophytes, or "free-swimming" among the plants. Plant-associated taxa were distributed according to available surface area. Numbers of periphyton and detritus feeders, chiefly chydorid Cladocera and chironomid midge larvae, were highly correlated with diatom density, whereas filter-feeding Cladocera attached to the plants (Sida, Simocephalus) were not.
