The similarity of predation rates in the open and screened hatching chambers at HBNWR suggests that most of the predation we observed in our chambers at this site was due to amphipods and other small organisms that could fit through the fiberglass screen rather than to larger predators such as newts, diving beetles, and water bugs entering the containers through an open top.
Although our plankton tows were not designed to comprehensively survey the plankton communities at these sites, the absence of amphipods in our samples does suggest that if amphipods are present at these sites, they occur at substantially lower densities than at HBNWR.
Several factors may have favored this interaction at the HBNWR site and not at the BL site.
