Microzooplankton : Flagellate Grazing in Lakes Hoare and Fryxell

Summary

Abstract: 

In conjunction with the Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica, lakes were monitored for microzooplankton by a team based out of the University of Nottingham (led by Johanna Laybourn-Parry). This dataset shows grazing rates of heterotrophic and mixotrophic flagellates found in Lakes Hoare and Fryxell at various depths and dates.
