Little Rock Lake, Wisconsin, U.S.A. has been the site of a whole-ecosystem experiment since 1983. It was divided into a treatment basin that was acidified in three, two-year stages and a reference basin. The rotifer community in the treatment basin exhibited a variety of responses to the manipulation. Many species decreased in abundance under reduced pH conditions but other rotifers increased at the same time such that there were ultimately increases with acidification in total rotifer biomass… CONTINUE READING
