The effects of basal resource manipulation on the nutritional state and fatty acid profiles of freshwater crustacean zooplankton
I am investigating the implications of the ‘climate sensitive’ landscape gradients of dissolved organic carbon and phosphorus on the nutritional state of aquatic organisms. Focusing on essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) of crustacean zooplankton communities spanning the heterogeneous Laurentian region of Québec, I will give insight to aquatic ecosystem health in a rapidly changing environment.
