Zooplankton Biodiversity, Lake Size, Isolation and Productivity in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
MetadataShow full item record
This study was conducted in September of 2007 in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to study lake ecology and biodiversity. According to the island biogeography theory, biodiversity will increase with island size and proximity to other land masses. This study was undertaken to determine whether lake size or productivity best predicts zooplanktonbiodiversity. Lake
