To determine the species composition, abundance, distribution, and year-to-year variability of the Lake Erie zoobenthos community, a total of benthic samples were collected in western, central, and eastern basins in, and Cited by:   Distribution and abundance of total oligochaetes and total chironomids in the Okanagan lake system.

Influence of eutrophication on deep lake benthic invertebrate communities prolonged periods of oxygen exhaustion and the most likely explanation is the influence of some toxic by: Biomass and density of nondreissenid benthic invertebrates did not change further between (MacDougall et al.although the spatial distribution of benthic invertebrates may have changed.

In Lake Erie, significant temporal change in benthic algal abundance has been associated with: 1) eutrophication (prior to ), 2) oligotrophication following the Great Lakes Water Quality. Benthic Invertebrate Fauna of Lake Erie Distribution, Abundance and Biomass.

Google ScholarCited by:   Significant seasonal changes were found in macrozoobenthic diversity and abundance in Fuxian Lake. The benthic fauna in the lake was the richest in summer, while those of Yangtze shallow lakes were richer in spring and autumn (Liang et al., ).

In Fuxian Lake the density and biomass varied in different ways. Of the approximately non-indigenous species that have invaded the Great Lakes since the early s, few have had greater effects on this ecosystem than the zebra and quagga mussel (Dreissena polymorpha and D.

bugensis, respectively).In this study the effects of these bivalves on macroinver-tebrates inhabiting hard substrates in western Lake Erie were. Quantitative samples of the benthic macrofauna inhabiting bedrock substrates in the wave zone (0- to 2-m depth) at a site on Lake Huron and one on Lake Erie were collected in.

Clostridium botulinum type E in Lake Erie: Inter-annual differences and role of benthic invertebrates Article in Journal of Great Lakes Research 37(2). Benthic and pelagic secondary production were measured at nearshore and offshore sites in the western, west-central, and eastern basins of Lake Erie in to determine the relative importance of benthic and pelagic foodwebs to the fish community after dreissenid colonization.

Benthic biomass increased greatly between and because of the presence of dreissenids, and >90% of benthic. Sediment cores taken at 15 sites within the three main depositional basins of Lake Erie from to were sectioned in 1-cm intervals and analyzed for the abundance and vertical distribution.

The size frequency distribution of the amphipods was examined in the samples from Gibraltar and Pelee islands, eastern Lake Erie, western Lake On tario, the Welland Canal, and Niagara River to de termine age structure of the populations by measuring either all the amphipods present or sub samples where abundance was greater than J.


To compare the results from two overlapping but unpaired synoptic surveys, a method using a geographic information system is proposed. The new method uses a GIS to create (i) minimum convex polygons (MCP) enclosing each set of survey data and (ii) Voronoi tesselations assigning area weights to each datum.

The pairs of MCP and Voronoi maps are overlaid to produce a. The influences of productivity, vegetation coverage, and benthivorous fish abundance on macroinvertebrate abundance and mean size were examined in Midwestern USA impoundments.

Invasion of Currituck Sound, North Carolina, by Myriophyllum spicatum increased the total biomass of submersed macrophytes, and this in turn led to an increase in numbers of dabbling ducks.

Rasmussen and Kalff () noted a decrease in benthic invertebrate biomass as steepness in slope of the sides of the lake basin increased.

Steep slopes occur in Lakes GTH and I Specimens resembling H. anomala have also been found in the stomach contents of a white perch collected near Port Dover, Lake Erie in August (T. MacDougall, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, pers, comm.).

The species is probably present at other locations in the Great Lakes basin, but has escaped detection. Length‐frequency distribution of quagga mussels from littoral (benthic profundal (> 40 m) zones in Lake Erie.

Lake Erie supported the great- est number of taxa overall (40), while benthic invertebrate communities in Lake Superior rela- tively taxa poor, with a total of 12 taxa found in the lake.

Both trophic contaminants (or- ganic carbon, total phosphorus) and chemical contaminants may interact in defin- ing benthic community structure (Lang and Lang-Dobler, ). Throughout the Great Lakes, changes in the benthic community in response to polluting influences are relatively predictable.
