To test the hypothesis that the structure of zooplankton communities of acidified, fish-free lakes can be regulated by predation from larval Chaoborus, the rates of production of the principal prey species of Chaoborus in Swan Lake, a small, fish-less, acid lake near Sudbury, Canada, were compared with their estimated rates of consumption by Chaoborus. The production of Bosmina longirostris, the major crustacean zooplankter in the lake, rarely exceeded its apparent rate of loss to Chaoborus. In… CONTINUE READING
