Planktivorous fish are important in shaping zooplankton communities in many freshwater ecosystems, and there is an intrinsic link between the active and resting forms of many zooplankton taxa. However, few field studies have considered the influence of planktivorous fish on zooplankton resting-stage communities, and none have considered this phenomenon in rivers. In two separate but concurrent 12-day experiments, we investigated the effects of Eastern Gambusia (Gambusia holbrooki Girard) and… CONTINUE READING
