North Temperate Lakes LTER Bythotrephes longimanus spiny water flea population monitoring in Wisconsin and Minnesota 2009 - 2014

Abstract

Three data tables are included describing population dynamics for Bythotrephes longimanus, spiny water flea, in Southern Wisconsin during invasion. General monitor took place in Lake Mendota, Lake Monona, Lake Waubesa, Lake Kegonsa, Stormy Lake, Gile Flowage, Lake Gogebic.Accompanying Bythotrephes morphological measurements from Lake Mendota monitoring efforts in 2011 and 2012. Included are individual measurements of body morphology and reproductive status for ~2,500 <em>Bythotrephes </em>collected from Lake Mendota in 2011 and 2012.Sediment cores from Lake Mendota were analyzed for spiny water flea evidence with age of sediment estimated.

The dataset contains collected Bythotrephes longimanus monitoring efforts from 8 invaded lakes in Wisconsin that took place over the course of 2009 through 2014 using a zooplankton net.
Included here are individual measurements of body morphology and reproductive status for ~2,500 Bythotrephes collected from Lake Mendota in 2011 and 2012
