New GLEON Project: Zooplankton as indicators

Stephanie Figary and others in GLEON

Zooplankton are impacted by both top-down, bottom-up forces, and are used as indicators of lake trophic state. This early GLEON project is considering looking at both testing existing zooplankton indicators and exploring the development of new zooplankton indicators of ecosystem change (e.g. changes in fish communities). This project will use the GLEON network to collect existing time series datasets from lakes around the world.
