Cascade Project at North Temperate Lakes LTER: Zooplankton 1984 - 2007
Zooplankton data from 1984-1995. Sampled approximately weekly with two net hauls through the water column (30 cm diameter net, 80 um mesh). There have been 5 zooplankton counters during this period, so species-level identifications (TAX, below) are not as consistent as those for some of the other datasets. To standardize across counters, I have assigned higher-level taxonomic categories for a few "confusing" taxa; these identifications can be found in the column LLTAX, below. Sampling Frequency: varies Number of sites: 5
