Question

The size distribution of zooplankton in a lake is typically a hump-shaped curve; that is, if the frequency (in percent) of zooplankton is plotted against the body length of zooplankton, a curve that first increases and then decreases results. Brooks and Dodson (1965) studied the effects of introducing a planktivorous fish in a lake. They found that the composition of zooplankton after the fish was introduced shifted to smaller individuals. In the same coordinate system, sketch the size distribution of zooplankton before and after the introduction of the planktivorous fish.
