- ... Herbivory by non‐native animals is a problem of growing concern globally, especially for ecosystems where there were few native herbivores or where they have been replaced by non‐natives. The rudd (Scardinius erythrophthalmus) is an omnivorous cyprinid (native to Europe) now very widespread due to human introductions, yet it is unknown whether the invasive rudd feeds selectively among aquatic macr ...

- ... 1. Marked differences were observed in the total fatty acid concentrations and essential fatty acid (EFA) distributions of co-existing freshwater copepods and cladocerans in four large lake systems (lakes Michigan, Erie, Ontario and Champlain) over two growing seasons. These patterns appeared independent of lake seston EFA composition. 2. Compared to the cladocerans, calanoid and cyclopoid copepod ...
