About this report


This annual report describes the use of zooplankton communities to infer the trophic status (nutrient enrichment) of shallow lakes. It is part of an ongoing programme to use these organisms to potentially investigate changes to the nutrient enrichment of lakes over time which may be influenced by management efforts.
