Zooplankton density,were taken with a 30 cm diameter plankton net with 156 um mesh plankton netting, for all samples collected from Toolik Lake and lakes near the Toolik Field Station, Arctic LTER from 2003 - 2017.
This file contains the fish number, recap number, species, lengths, weights, sex and a list of tissues sampled of fish captured in lakes near the Toolik Lake Arctic LTER site during summers from 1986 to 2021. The file also contains information from gill-netted fish (if any), sacrificed fish, and accidentally killed fish. All dead fish are included, and if their stomachs and otoliths were taken, that is noted also.
Zooplankton density in number per liter for all samples collected from arctic lakes near Toolik Lake Field Station (Arctic LTER) in summer from 1983 to 1992 (inclusive). NOTE: The dates for 1992 are WRONG in versions 1 and 2. The original dates were entered in several date formats which resulted in conversion errors.
Zooplankton density, in number per liter, was taken with a 30 cm diameter plankton net with a 335 um mesh plankton netting. All samples were collected from Toolik Lake and the lakes near the Toolik Field Station, Arctic LTER from 1993-2002. NOTE: In versions pervious to 3 the dates for 1994 and 1995 were WRONG.
We used a fully factorial experiment to test effects of food availability and temperature (7.6, 12.7 and 17.4 degrees C; 50 days) on growth, consumption, respiration, and excretion of slimy sculpin (Cottus cognatus).
We tested effects of temperature (12 and 19.3 degrees C; 27 days) on habitat use, consumption, and growth of slimy sculpin (Cottus cognatus). To measure temperature selection by sculpin, we connected two 5.7 L tanks with a PVC pipe that was passable by sculpin (n = 12 tanks). We heated one side of the tank to 12 °C and the other to 19.3 °C using aquarium heaters.
