Compensatory and Spatial Dynamics in Great Lakes Food Webs

Most researchers and resource managers in the Great Lakes give high   priority to understanding the ecological effects of invasive   species. This continuing project is developing both empirical and   theoretical tools for evaluating the spatial dynamics and   compensatory responses of Great Lakes food webs as indications of   changes in predator-prey interactions at different trophic levels.   This work will provide Great Lakes fisheries managers with much-  needed information on how various fisheries will be affected by   changes in food web dynamics caused by invasive species.    (food web); (food webs); (food web dynamics); (AIS); (aquatic   invasive species); (ANS); (aquatic nuisance species)
