About this book

Fluctuations in fish populations can cascade through food webs to alter productivity and other fundamental processes in lakes. The book tests this by manipulating whole lakes experimentally.

Contents

1. Cascading trophic interactions; 2. Experimental lakes, manipulations and measurements; 3. Statistical analysis of the ecosystem experiments; 4. The fish populations; 5. Fish behavioral and community responses to manipulation; 6. Roles of fish predation: piscivory and planktivory; 7. Dynamics of the phantom midge: implications for zooplankton; 8. Zooplankton community dynamics; 9. Effects of predators and food supply and diel vertical migration of Daphnia; 10. Zooplankton biomass and body size; 11. Phytoplankton community dynamics; 12. Metalimnetic phytoplankton; 13. Primary production and its interactions with nutrients and light transmission; 14. Heterotrophic microbial processes; 15. Annual fossil record of food-web manipulation; 16. Simulation models of the trophic cascade: predictions and evaluations; 17. Synthesis and new directions; Index.

Media reviews

I found the book to be clearly written, and appropriate for its target audience, researchers in ecology and resource management...The breadth of approaches brought to bear in the study is extremely impressive...I recommend this book as a fine case history of a pluralistic approach to an important ecological issue. Tim Wootton, Ecology "State-of-the-art theory and methods in a variety of ecological and aquatic disciplines are brought together and integrated. Many ecologists will be intrigued by the statistical approaches applied throughout the book...resource managers will find important and useful lessons about ecosystem management in practice." Brett Johnson, Fisheries Review "This book is of interest to workers in ecology, aquatic ecology, resource management, and limnology." Environment International
