We analyzed diel vertical migration (DVM) of zooplankton in June, July, and September in Lake Kärnsjön, Sweden. In this lake, the density of the invertebrate predator Chaoborus flavicans was high, and they performed normal DVM. However, the migration pattern of Chaoborus differed between its four larval instars. Larger instars were found at greater mean depths during the day than were the smaller instars. In both June and July, very few observations of the fourth instar were made at a depth of… CONTINUE READING
