This is from a scholarly journal. Please expect detailed science and a higher reading level. Diporeia spp. were a key component of the Great Lakes benthos, converting the pelagic algal rain to secondary production, which is critical for Great Lakes fishes. However, Diporeia declines since the 1980s have been rapid and widespread. While there are temporal relationships between Diporeia declines and spread of zebra and quagga mussels, establishing a mechanistic link has been difficult.
This is from a scholarly journal. Please expect detailed science and a harder reading level. The Cheboygan River, Michigan, is the only tributary to the upper Great Lakes where sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) are known to complete their entire life cycle. The Cheboygan River represents a microcosm of the Great Lakes and is useful for learning about sea lamprey ecology and testing controls that supplement lampricides and barriers.
One biologist's radical dream for the Great Lakes came true when millions of salmon were brought in from the Pacific. The world's largest freshwater ecosystem has been a giant science experiment ever since.
