Baikal is not the only cold and beautiful lake being invaded by Daphnia galeata

I just received a thank you letter from New Zealand’s Marsden fund (for reviewing) along with their Update brochure. Its cover is below:


According to a Marsden-funded study by Ian Duggan et al of Univ. of Waikato, invasion of non-native species in experimental mesocosms is facilitated by low native species diversity.  Perhaps those of us who are interested in the creeping invasion of Daphnia galeata into Baikal’s species poor zooplankton should keep an eye on Ian’s work.
