Trophic cascade strength is influenced by size frequency distribution of primary consumers and size-selective predation: examined with mesocosms and modeling

  • Thomas Detmer (Creator)
  • David H Wahl (Creator)



Data set of trophic cascade in mesocosms experiments for zooplankton (biomass and body size) and phytoplankton (chlorophyll a concentration) caused by Bluegill as well as zooplankton production in those same treatment groups. Zooplankton were collected by tube sampler and phytoplankton were collected through grab samples.
