Fish foraging behavior changes plankton-nutrient relations in laboratory microcosms

Fish foraging behavior changesplankton-nutrient relations in laboratory microcosms NOVALES-FLAMARIQUE, I., S. GRIESBACH, M. PARENT, A. CATTANEO, AND R. H. PETERS, Limnol. Oceanogr., 38(2), 1993, 290-298 Full article (PDF): http://aslo.net/lo/toc/vol_38/issue_2/0290.pdf To demonstrate that the effects of higher trophic elements on plankton in laboratory aquaria are not simple top-down or bottom-up processes, we measured phosphorus and chlorophyll concentrations […]
