Grant Description

The Great Lakes basin has a lengthy history of biological invasions. The spiny water fleas is an invasive zooplankter that received increasing attention over the past decade as its effects on Great Lakes ecology became apparent and invasion of the region's inland waters began to occur. National Park units in the western Great Lakes region feature abundant and valuable inland water resources that are vulnerable to invasion by fleas. Two lakes at Pictured Rocks have already been invaded. The proposed study aims to determine which inland lakes and parks have been invaded and investigate the effect of fleas invasions on two inland lakes at Pictured Rocks and convey the implications of these findings to the public.
