Description

The purpose of the experiment is to explore the natural importance of filter feeding organisms for water quality. This will be demonstrated with a filter feeding organism clearing a graphite suspension. Another point of discussion is that invading species, such as the nonnative Zebra mussels, can tip the environment dynamic out of balance if too much is strained. A balance of filter feeding is crucial for water quality.
