Hi Chris,

        Do a web search for freshwater zooplankton, or if you're able to,
head to your college library and look up Robert Pennak's 'Freshwater
Invertebrates of the United States and Canada'. Other good books to look
up include Wetzel's 'Limnology' or Wetzel and Liken's 'Limnological
Analyses'. All are good starting points for learning about freshwater
inverts. If you have any further questions, feel free to e-mail me.
