Impact TypeWater Quality
Study TypeExperimental
Study LocationField
Impact DescriptionFound that the density of Daphnia lumholtzi in some parts of the Illinois River was larger than the density of all other native zooplankton combined. High densities appeared to be correlated with high temperatures and increased inorganic sediment suspension, suggesting that areas in the Great Lakes with these conditions could face the greatest impacts.
