Predation, Body Size, and Composition of Plankton Objectives determine the effects of predators on the presence of plankton case study was performed on Crystal Lake- compared the composition and body size of plankton between the years 1942 and 1964 under the presence of the fish, Alosa larger plankton, such as Daphnia, were found greatly in the lakes before the introduction of Alosa, but once Alosa became introduced, smaller plankton dominated the lakes pattern suggests that the size of plankton were impacted by the predation of the Alosa fish Key Findings size efficiency hypothesis: under intense predation, small sized plankton will tend to prevail; in low intensity predation, large sized plankton will prevail Importance when there is intense predation, a great deal of the large plankton will be eliminated since they are easier to spot, and they cannot travel as fast to swim away from their predators when there is not as an intense predation, the predators will more likely eliminate smaller sized plankton since they can be more efficiently collected than large plankton; it becomes easier to filter for smaller sized plankton and is thus more favored to become the prey Implications
