- ... Efficient zooplankton grazing is a prerequisite for establishing a cascading food web control over phytoplankton in a lake. We studied if the top-down impact of fish could reach phytoplankton in a lake where the grazing pressure of small-sized zooplankton on filamentous phytoplankton is considered weak. We analysed >30 years of data on plankton, fish catches, hydrochemistry, hydrology, and meteoro ...
