Abstract

Calanoid copepods found in a summer survey of northwestern Minnesota lakes and ponds were: Epischura lacustris, Diaptomus oregonensis, D. leptopus, D. sakatchewanensis, D. nudus, and D. siciloides. Some diaptomid species correlated with vegetational type. E. lacustris, D. oregonensis, D. saskatchewanensis were characteristic of pine hardwood and mesic deciduous forest regions while D. nudus and D. siciloides were characteristic of Oak-Savanna and prairie regions. D. leptopus was characteristic in shallow water habitats and occurred on both sides of the transitional area.
