Ongoing GLEON Project: Effect of mussels and Daphnia on seasonality of filter feeding

 Lars Rudstam, Stephanie Figary, and others in GLEON

During the 2019 meeting, we reinvigorated a project aimed at comparing the filtering capacity of zooplankton and mussels in different lake types.  We will look for data sets similar to our data from Oneida and Onondaga Lake to study seasonality and distribution of filtering with the aim of updating the Plankton Ecology Group (PEG) model of seasonality in lakes.
