UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-MADISON: Research on Spiny Waterflea in Madison Lakes


The University of Wisconsin Board of Regents are sponsoring work by the Center for Limnology to increase our understanding of spiny waterflea invasion in lakes, and provide guidance for future management. This three year project will look at many aspects of understanding this species, from identification of transport vectors, determining best methods and timing to detect invasion, assessing the ecological impact of this species on plankton and fish communities in both northern and southern Wisconsin lakes. Annual updates will be submitted and the final report will be presented at local and national conferences, published in peer-reviewed literature, and shared with all project partners.
