Aquatic Ecology

Mysis Shrimp

UC Davis lake research includes regular monitoring of primary productivity algal growth, phytoplankton, zooplankton, attached algae (periphyton), and Tahoe forests. Research is also conducted on several aquatic invasive species including Asian clams, Curlyleaf pondweed, and Mysis shrimp. Outside of the lake experiments have been established by researchers from UC Davis and the USDA Forest Service Pacific Southwest Research Station to evaluate ecologically important plant traits in dominant tree species in the Lake Tahoe Basin.
