  • The lack of imbalance in C: P and N: P ratios between seston and mussels along with high tissue C: P ratio of the mussel allow them to tolerate potential P limitation and maintain high growth rate.

  • But to understand how the zebra mussel, as a successful invader, handle this stoichiometric constraints, we concurrently analyzed the elemental composition of the food (seston) and tissue of the mussels collected from a sampling site in Lake Erken in which nutrient composition of food and mussels varied over time.

  • Her first objective was to describe the nutritional environment inhabited by the larvae of the fishes during the period of maximum reproduction and, to this end, based on the biochemical composition of the seston (the particles on which the larvae feed).
