Experiments and Quasi-Experiments in Limnology
Abstract:True replication and control are not available for whole-lake experiments, even when the investigator can manipulate the system. Many lakes have been subjected to deliberate or inadvertent disturbance and provide excellent opportunities for research when one can find substitutes for replication and control. Such studies require extensive quantitative description of relevant conditions in the lake. The population explosions of Oscillatoria and Daphnia in Lake Washington are taken as examples. One of the relevant properties of a zooplankton population for such an analysis is the rate of reproduction, or egg production. The present state of the use of data on eggs is described against the background of development of the use of such information.
