Shifts in Zooplankton Community Structure : Implications for Food Web Processes in the Upper San Francisco Estuary

  title={Shifts in Zooplankton Community Structure : Implications for Food Web Processes in the Upper San Francisco Estuary},
  author={Monika Winder and Alan D. Jassby},
Zooplankton are an important trophic link and a key food source for many larval fish species in estuarine ecosystems. The present study documents temporal and spatial zooplankton dynamics in Suisun Bay and the Sacramento–San Joaquin Delta—the landward portion of the San Francisco Estuary (California, USA)—over a 37year period (1972–2008). The zooplankton community experienced major changes in species composition, largely associated with direct and indirect effects of introductions of non-native… CONTINUE READING
