Title:Zooplankton for all 8 Dorset lakes
Identifier:bowdish.93
Abstract:
Zooplankton for all 8 Dorset lakes (last updated version of lakezoo.txt: 21 January 1997) Pelagic crustacean zooplankton were sampled in each lake on a monthly basis (fortnightly in harp and plastic) from 1978 to 1992 (1978 to 1995 in harp and plastic). These data are in tab-delimited ASCII format, without column headings, in lakezoo2.txt. Samples with missing biomass estimates in the years 1978 to 1981 were counted using a different protocool than the rest of the samples.
