North Temperate Lakes LTER: Pelagic Macroinvertebrate Summary 1983 - current

Abstract

This is a summary of dataset NTL 13. Derived data include the mean and standard deviation of the number of each species captured as well as the mean and standard deviation of the density of individuals on both an areal and volumetric basis.
Five vertical tows are collected after dark at the deepest point of each of the seven primary lakes in the Trout Lake area (Allequash, Big Muskellunge, Crystal, Sparkling, and Trout lakes and bog lakes 27-02 [Crystal Bog], and 12-15 [Trout Bog]) using a 1-m diameter, 1-mm mesh net. On Trout Lake four additional sites are sampled, where depths are approximately at 10 m, 15 m, 20 m, and 25 m, with three tows taken at each site. Samples are preserved, and later counted in their entirety for Chaoborus spp., Leptodora kindtii, Mysis relicta, and Bythotrephes longimanus. Sampling Frequency: annually. Number of sites: 11
