Title The Limnetic zooplankton community of Boulder Basin, Lake Mead in relation to the metalimnetic oxygen minimum
Creator Burke, Thomas A.
Description The limnetic zooplankton community of Boulder Basin, Lake Mead, was examined to determine the role of this community in the development of a metalimnetic oxygen minimum which regularly occurs in the lake. Analysis of the community from May 1975 to April 1976 revealed that zooplankton maintain high populations within the metalimnion during summer stratification. The species composition of the community changes noticeably during the summer, but due to advanced stages excysting from resting...
